She told us a lot of things and here am gonna point out some of them.
Now the story of this house ... Look at the picture , it seems like a balcony blocked with rocks. It was the house of Zafra , the prime minister in the time of the Catholic Kings , Fernando and Isabel. His daughter used to live in this house , and when he knew that she had a relationship with a guy from a lower social level he held her prisoner in that house. He even built two walls and pressed her between them so she would die painfully and slowly.
El Paseo de los Tristes:
This street's name means: The passage of the sad. I walked there a million times before , I sat on the wall by the r
iver holding my head up to see Alhambra ~sigh~ and the name always sounded so personal to me : its wear I sit and sigh thinking about my ancestors. The actual name came from the times when the path to the cemetery passed through this street , and people passed crying.
y is that the name that everybody knows is not the official name. The street's official name is Padre Manjon , who was a priest and the first to start a school for gypsys , not only that but he started with teaching girls!!
The owner of this house placed a plaque with the colloquial name of the street and his house number hehehehehe (typical Grandian humor)
The daughter yelled: Pero Justicia Padre >> Justice Dad , and he said: Espera la justicia del cielo porque en este mundo no hay justicia por lo que has hecho con mi honor >> Wait for heavens justice , because in this world there is not any justice that recompensates what you have done to my honor.
The girls in the group were gasping in disbelief ,saying what a monster was Zafra to do that to his own daughter. I could not help but smile ,,,,I thought of all the girls who faced similar destiny in my country , not in 1520 but now adays because they had sex without getting married.
It is not that I accept this act by any means , but what makes me suck , that my society keeps saying they punish those girls because they committed a sin! They dont go after the boys who took part in the sin , and they dont follow Gods guidelines , they dont treat the sin as any other sin which God pardons if the sinner repents. But the fact they dont give a shit about religion , its just a matter of their stupid HONOR ...
And I dont accept the sexual mess people are living here , but how did they get here? Sex was a big Tabu , was prohibited , was not a matter that can be discussed , religion said sex is evil , sexual encounters are works of the devil , and what happened at the end? a sexual explosion and a bad fame for religion .... why does religion look bad always?!
