Back in Madrid – December 2010

On 29th I turned back in Madrid to prepare the New Year Celebration – which was on the streets and, as I was somehow excited about that, I forgot my batteries of the Canon camera at home, such a pity, but the fun was nice anyway – and those pictures were made on 30th, while I was outside for some “before new year” shopping. By the way, I’ll tell you about the polvorones and mantecados, in a future post. Until then, take a look at my December outfit, do you like it ?

Oh, I should not close this post without showing you my “new” gray nails:

Christmas in Bucharest

This Christmas celebration was made in Bucharest (Romania) – well, not really inside Bucharest, but close to it, in some “satellite” villages of the big city. Even if Bucharest is considered one of the ugliest city in Europe (due to its filthy streets, bad architecture, awful traffic during the day) there are some attractions there that you can find amazing. It’s like a puzzle of ugly and chic, too bad there’s no brain to make from Bucharest a better place for tourists…

Anyway, for sure there are many, many beautiful places in Romania – Braşov, Sibiu, Sighişoara and The Danube Delta; also Carpathians are so nice to visit, you can find a nice traditional hostel – but you have to be careful about the snow falls during the winter season. For example, my snowy photos were made on a road near Bucharest after one night of snow showers.

And the view from my bedroom window, it’s soooo cozy to stay in the huge bed and look outside in the winter:

With a little delay, I wish you all: Merry Christmas!!!
