Next to the school yesterday, is on the Malecon promenade. El Malecón is a wall built against the water of the River Segura. It originates from the XV century and, despite being the object of various repairs, by the XVIII century it had deteriorated considerably because of the rain, the wind, horses and the continuous traffic of the city. For these reasons, it was rebuilt in 1736. Nowadays, it is an exceptional esplanade three metres above the ground. It stretches more than 15,000 metres into the "Huerta" or agricultural countryside like a stone tongue around the Western Side of the city, running between the Botanical gardens and those of the old Convent of San Francisco. It is made up of an area for leisure and the esplanade, from which you can enjoy magnificent views. If you want to rest there are numerous stone benches along the walkway.

Every saturday, beetwen October to June, I back to school. I back to play football indoor with some friends in a Marist league alumni.
The building of the Marist congregation, dates from 1934, and during the Spanish Civil War was a Hospital Blood, and later, Military Hospital. In 1949, he returned to Marist College, and still is. More info, click (in spanish).
The way I took the photo, it seems that the forbidden signal prohibits moving to the church. But it is only an optical effect.
This is the Church of Santo Domingo with a Baroque back). In the background the Convent of the Claras (Arabic former palace of the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, donated by real happened at the hands of the Poor Sisters of the Third Order of St. Francis, who hold almost 700 years). I'll show your more about this religious buildings.
Yesterday, when leaving work, I was going to take my car, I saw this evening, and I could not avoid to get a picture. Incredible variety of colors. To the left of the photo, the car of the manager where I work.
The image you see is the sports center La Flota. It's in the neighborhood of the same name. I like the facade of this sports complex. Here there is a heated pool, paddle tracks, fitness rooms. On another occasion, I'll tell more obout this center.
Start making cold. This morning, when I left home to work had in Murcia 5 degrees centigrade. In Murcia are not accustomed to low temperatures. In addition, the cold here is very humid and gets into the bones. We have to shelter. Anyway, the sun has come out and be sore throughout the day at 17-18 degrees.
The city of Murcia is situated in a valley surrounded by mountains. One of the mountainous areas are called Port of Garruchal . This port is an area of environmental protection. Well, I was doing when crossed by walking the path these two riders on quads. Until they leave the trail, nothing happens.
At the center of the city of Murcia, on the Avenida de la Libertad, it is building an underground car park. It is scheduled to finish construction in 2009. We are in November 2008 and in the image you can see how the system works. This area is full of shops like Zara, Mango, El Corte Ingles (this is like Galeries Lafayette).
I work at a pharmaceutical research company that is located in a technology park in Murcia.
In the park there are green areas in which there is a lake (artificial), and the lake is located along the green area with underground hangars that I don't know what it serve, but I liked the idea of capture in a photograph.
As in many other cities in Murcia are being built office towers. This is the image of one of those that will be called the "Blue Twin Towers". Although from this angle is only one of the 2 towers.These towers are in the area Atalayas.
The photo is taken from the garden of the Three Cups (garden Isaac Peral). By luck or bad luck, they are now starting to build these office towers. The downside of this is that for the first time it has been left to build above the height limit was to the Tower of the Cathedral.
In this bus stop can see the current logo of the city of Murcia. This logo brings us 1 year. Nor has much thought to get this logo, because Madrid has a very similar and it was prior to Murcia. Although the logo of the photo that is missing one: ¡M!
In the Barrio de La Flota (District of Fleet), which until not many years ago was on the outskirts of the city, and now it is very centrally located, this garden is named for Isaac Peral (scientific, military and Spanish marine, inventor of the first submarine torpedo). While the garden is known by all the Murcian as the Garden of the Three Cups (Jardín de las Tres Copas). For something will be.
Last Saturday was the first birthday of my son Juan.
Undoubtedly, the first birthday is an event in the life of ... parents. They organized the whole world of illusion. Because the baby does not know what day it is, though, that yes, he notes that is the center of attention. Well, we do not get him blow the candle (which we had to do the parents) and we all sang the "happy birthday". Let's see if next year he blows.
Key man in the history of Spain, Jose Moñino and Redondo, Count of Floridablanca, was born in Murcia in 1728. This year marks the bicentenary of the death of this illustrious Murcian who died in Sevilla, who became first secretary of state for sixteen years in the reigns of Carlos III and Carlos IV. To remember the Autonomous Community of Murcia, the City Hall, the Ministry of Culture, the Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando and Cajamurcia Foundation organized the exhibition "Floridablanca (1728 - 1808), the utopian reformist".
