Last weekend we just finished, we had a spring weather in the Region of Murcia, in Murcia City have grown to 24 degrees celsius. The temperature was ideal for going to the beach or to go to the mountain. In my case I chose the second option, to make a bit of hiking, and enjoying a picnic on the green lung of the city: El Valle. Here you can watch a visit of El Valle and Carrascoy: enjoy it!

The reservoir of La Cierva (dam La Cierva) is near the headwaters of the Mula river (Northwest area), a tributary of the Segura river. The use in addition to urban water supply, is to produce electricity. It is currently at 28% capacity.
The landscape surrounding the reservoir is a great beauty, and is worthy of a visit.
Casa El Cherro is a good place to taste traditional Murcian food. The most recommendable: its meats. Casa El Cherro was established in 1930, and has also a butchery, to buy the same meat that they cook.
It is located at Av. Miguel de Cervantes, Murcia.

The title of the work is "Weavers of Light" ("Tejedores de luz") by Nicolás de Maya artists. The truth is that the title I don't understand, nor understand why there is a man foot and a woman foot. But I like the colossal size of the work.
With the wave of cold, snow has fallen in the north (and northwest) of the Region of Murcia. But as we had two sunny days, It has been hard to find snow, so I went to the nearby Granada (Andalusia), about an hour and a half from the city of Murcia (to the northwest). I found a little, although there were three degrees below zero Celsius.
About the photo: some snow nearly of La Puebla de Don Fadrique.
This is the house occupied (see the facade from yesterday). This house was, until a few years ago, a nursery (or kindergarten). But now, building that is empty or abandoned, was occupied by the squatters' movement.
There is a Siberian cold wave sweeping across Europe, and is now also in Spain. In Murcia, fortunately, we have only reached 5 degrees Celsius minimum (12 degrees maximum), well, half of the Region of Murcia, to the coast. The rest have been cooler, even it has snowed.
