Gone to the Wind


 I have tried to find any information about that windmill but I could not.

At Cartagena fields (Campo de Cartagena), it was built hundreds of windmills between XVIII and XIX centuries to offer services for grinding cereals or to raise groundwater. Most of them where in use to later 40's (1949).

More info here.

A New Beginning


 There is a Spanish saying that says: "Who gets up early, God helps him/her" ("A quien madruga Dios le ayuda"). Well, we will have to get up early. But there is also another Spanish saying that says: "No por mucho madrugar amanece más temprano" that literally means "Not by much getting up early it dawns earlier" but perhaps means "Time must take its course" or "the early bird does not always catch the worm".

Anyway, that is a sunrise taken on a north entry to Murcia city.

Biscuter on the Road


 It is nice to see old (vintage) cars on streets.

That is a Biscúter, (pronunciation of BiScooter). It was a microcar manufactured in Spain, by Auto Nacional, SA, from 1953 to 1960, total of all versions around 10,000 units.That car  was minimal indeed, with no doors or windows or reverse gear. The 1 cylinder, 197 cc, two-stroke motor produced 9 horsepower. One genuinely advanced feature was an all-aluminum body, although steel was later used.

The playful name implied that it was about the size of two motorscooters, or a scooter with four wheels. But it soon became known as the Zapatilla, or little shoe (clog).

"Ugly as a Biscúter" was a common joke. (Source: Wikipedia)

Cinemas are Safe Places


 As you can see, there are 4 chairs between non cohabitants. But also, the rest of the line is empty. People is not going to cinemas. But as cinemas, also theatres, auditoriums and many other cultural places have taken protocols to avoid any contagion.

Welcome to the Cinema


 On 2020 June, Cinemas reopened their doors. 4 months later, cinemas are empties and it is a pity to see that image. Finally, only 6 people watch the film, on Saturday :o

I invite you to be back to cinemas and theatres, with face mask, of course.

Paris Vivant Exhibition

The exhibition, Paris Vivant, 1867-1960, aims to offer the pictorial richness of a few generations who lived under the Eiffel Tower and on the banks of the Seine, all the concerns and longings to come to fruition as an artist. Many of them touched fame and recognition, others covered by the great masters developed a noble and valid painting although they did not have the great art dealers; However, in that anthill of artists, everyone lived and felt the art with authentic dedication. (Extract from 'Paris Vivant. From Montmartre to Montparnasse, more than a century of painting'. Text by Martín Páez).
