ITV: Technical inspection of vehicles.
In this place (there are thousands of them throughout Spain), we have to pass all those owners of vehicles, from 4 years old, in the case of cars. And so every two years, until our car is 10 years. After, all the years, we must make a review.
These ITV, what is done is to check that the vehicle we drive, is in perfect condition and is not a road hazard.
There is so much public ITV (which manages the Autonomous Community) and private.

Working Machines

In the picture, a road that are saved, for now, these cuts.

Timber Transport

There are days where one is not inspired and can start writing a tirade, while looking at the photo. I do not know if talking about the number of logs that taking this truck (I have not stopped to count, if someone has time ...); about the truck (if an eight-axle, what is a eight axes?).
The only thing I can think to say is that I was amazed that such a truck carrying wood (in the month of July, to 35 degrees Celsius). Is it to make furniture, or is to the fireplace?

As useful yesterday, so persecuted today.
Until the decade of the 30s (in the twentieth century), the cultivation of hemp for its fiber procurement, was widespread. His fiber is used for both networks, clothes, tarpaulins, sails (sails of Christopher Columbus, the American flag and the papers in which it declared its independence were made with fiber Cannabis.). Perhaps the appearance of oil synthetic fibers, this plant began to be persecuted.
The medicinal use of cannabis is legal in a limited number of territories worldwide, including Canada, Germany, Argentina, Austria, Holland, Spain, Israel, Finland and Portugal. In the U.S., fourteen states have recognized medical marijuana: Alaska, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Illinois, Maine, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont and Washington.

In this article, I do not pretend that all of you smoke marijuana, but merely stated that the use of fibers should be returned to trade on the rise, and dispose of items affordable for everyone.
Here you can read an article about "
50 reason to legalize/illegalize marijuana today" (Thanks to Rachel Davis who has sent me this link)

Vereda Real. Royal Creeks

The actual royal paths (royal creeks) were cattle trails that were covered by King Alfonso X "El Sabio" (in 1273). With royal regulation, was also forbidden to cut that commonly performed adjacent property owners through the movement of landmarks.
Although almost no longer used by the modernization of farming, still appear on maps. Curiously, the center of the city of Madrid, runs one of these trails, which, once a year, is used, as a claim, by shepherds and their livestock.
The pity is that what should have been a protected public area of-way, over the years, has become, illegally, on private property.

Here, a map of this Cañadas/Veredas Reales

And that is, from 10 am until after 9 pm, the temperature in the city of Murcia, exceeds 30 degrees centigrade during the summer.

El Toro

The bull, the animal quintessential Spanish brand. This animal (in this comment I will not speak of bullfighting) is a beauty in itself. Only in his bearing, shows a bravura, display a presence that I admire.
View a group of fighting bulls in a pasture is a marvel. With this strength in their legs, with a neck that shows strength ...

The photo: roundabout in Pilar de la Horadada, Alicante.

This photo was taken at about 2pm, and about 30 degrees Celsius. As you can see, there is a total luminosity. This picture was taken at the natural beach of La Torre Derribada (the fallen tower), which is in the protected environment of the salt flats of San Pedro. Despite being a natural beach, each 150-200 meters there is a lifeguard.
Here you have several links to information on natural regional park:
-Video (in Spanish)
where you can see images of this incredible place.
-Map of that nature reserve (English)
-All about this place: history, routes (English)
Anyway, I show this place to keep it preserved.

Following The Final Of The Football World Cup South Africa 2010

Spain: World Cup Champion. While I write these lines, Spain has proclaimed champion of the world cup for the first time in its history, against an opponent like the Netherlands, which has not made things any easier.
The image I have taken during the first time in Belluga Cardinal Square,
opposite the Cathedral, where it has placed a giant television screen. At that time, the result was a tie to 0.

The Hope Of Spain: To Win The World Cup Championship

Since the Spanish football team started winning games in the World Cup South Africa 2010, and, especially, since it began to pass the second round, all over Spain (I guess) and in Murcia, houses, cars, people, are filled patriotic sentiment, or follow-up to La Roja (The Red).
Tonight, Spain won to Germany, and for the first time, Spain will play the final of this tournament.
The hope of Spanish people to forget the crisis for just a week, it's that Spain wins the South Africa 2010 Fifa World Cup.

Petrol Prizes

Each petrol station, each country has its gasoline prices. The European Union said that gasoline in Spain is cheaper, though, of course, it would have to compare the purchasing power of each country. In Spain the average wage is around 1100 euros, while in many other countries in Europe are above 2000 euros.
