Chinchón – the day after the wedding

Not much more to say about Chinchón after two or three posts in which I wrote a lot about it, but a nice collection of pictures. So, nothing more, just enjoy the photos!

Typical streets of Chinchón:

A normal day

A little stroll through the city, a pleasant stay at a terrace, or a lucky shopping session, this can turn a regular day into a wonderful day. This is what I call a ‘normal’ day. And this is my look for a happy normal day. I posted this because I received many emails from people asking me what do you wear on a normal day out ? Of course, nothing special, less make-up and casual comfortable androgynous clothes and shoes. But I always try to be chic. Judge for yourself if I succeed or not.

Chinchón – the night after the wedding (II)

A promise is a promise, so I came back with the bullfighting (empty) arena. I’m against that ‘sport’, I find it barbarian and with no actual reason, but as it’s part of the tradition… a reminiscent ritual, a demonstration of male (and female now) power. I just feel sorry for the bulls…

Roads of Lanzarote

Just a souvenir of the wonderful days spent in Lanzarote. This is a short movie captured from the first row of an Amanda North Tour bus. The guide was speaking mostly in German, a plus for those who understand that language. The first part of the film is on the road between Mirador de Las Nieves and 1000 palms tree valley, near Haria. The last movie is from Puerto del Carmen, near Matagorda Beach. Enjoy the roads of Lanzarote.

Cueva de Los Verdes

I’m fascinated with the power of the nature and I think the island of Lanzarote is the best place to actually see and feel that force. The volcanic island from Canary Archipelago has so many sites where you can see how the volcano (“La Corona”) modeled the landscape in a dramatic fight with its stone and the water of the ocean; one of this place is Cueva de Los Verdes (part of the “Atlantis Tunnel”), a cave made by the lava flowing its way from the volcano to the ocean. This cave is linked to Jameos del Agua place, also a continuation of the labyrinth of the old lava underground river. Despite de Jameos del Agua, which was arranged by Manrique with special facilities (like a concert hall, a pool, a bar and everything), in Cueva de Los Verdes the man-made modifications are restricted to stone steps and wall lights. The guided circuit of the cave is mandatory here as you may experience some accidents in the gallery. Also, this cave has a mysterious secret, which is not revealed until the last part of the underground trip; it’s a wonderful and unexpected secret, which can blow your mind for seconds. Well, as it is a secret, well kept by the locals, I won’t disclose it either, even if I made a fabulous picture there. It worths the trip to find out yourself.

About the pictures, what can I say, it’s a cave photo session, that means only dark and colorful lights. Enjoy the underground of Lanzarote!
