Hot Drink Against Cold

Suddenly, winter has arrived. We were at 24°C last week, and now, suddenly, 9°C.
And if you're on the street, nothing better than a hot chocolate, hot coffee, hot tea. I went through the door of this cafe - pastry, and I had to go into. A very nice local design, and a spectacular presentation of sweets and cakes. Its name: Kuss, in Cartagena, Region of Murcia.

Urban Canoeing

It is becoming fashionable canoeing on the Segura river.
The last time there was a race of canoeing at Murcia was in 1981. After that date, due to uncontrolled industrial discharges, ceased to be navigable, and even no longer visited by odors. Until the late 90s, it was not taken seriously clean up the river, and control releases (it was mythical a question in Trivial Pursuit in the 80s: "What dirty river, passing through Murcia?").
Now, fishing competitions are made, and next weekend, 20 and 21 February will be held the I Race City of Murcia, which have registered five hundred canoeists.

Feb'16 Theme Day. Scene From A Coffe House.

This Theme Day was selected by Merisi. She is at Viena.
This cafe is located between Romea Theater square, and Santo Domingo square, near the Arc of Santo Domingo, is there since the 80s. In 2011, it was an impressive reform.
It's a good place for coffee, tapas. I recommend visiting it, at least for its architecture (designed by an acquaintance of mine). Here you can see photos inside.
