Football was fair tonight and the good guys won at the end. Enough , enough of Real Madrid defensive and boring games , and enough of them pushing Barcelona's players around and not being punished for it.

I liked this episode of Becker ,what is it with the obsession with sex? I always thought that it was a media production , that has nothing to do with the real world , but taking one steo closer to the society in which I am living , I came to realize that its so true!!! Is it normal?

For the first time in my life , I spent an entire day in bed. I did not have plans and did not feel like making any. The dog was somewhere in the house and it was an extra factor of why I dont want to get out of my room. My tummy hurt and I was powerless so I just laid in bed and watched Becker , read and wrote all day long.

Look how crowded was the street!! Sadoof and I kept climbing up the mountain looking for a an empty spot , and the further we went the later we were to see the procession , but we did not care , we wanted to live the experience anyway, so we found a spot and sat. A group of Spanish guys and girls stuffed themselves next to us and started smoking marijuana ,,, that until a neighbor from above started pouring Vodka on us!!! Why is that? how impolite is that in the passions week!!!
I loved this scene so I took this so blurry picture. Its of a man sleeping on the side walk with his two kids sleeping on his lap waiting for the statue if Jesus and Virgin Mary to pass. They woke up happily when the procession arrived ,,, I think there are still some religious Spanish ,, alahmdullilah
This is the processions leader who guides the costaleros to where they should head .
The statue of Jesus.
The statue of Virgin Mary when it first showed up in the horizon ,,,, The gypsy's got so emotional when they saw her. They looked to the audience in disgust -and they have all right to do so - because the audience was mainly drunk and indifferent (I just wonder why did not they just go their Discotheques and leave this ''show'' for the believeres?!!) I felt deeply insulted of how the procession turned to be at last ,,, as a believer I did not want those people turning a religious assembly into a joke , but what can I do?!!
But in spite of all that I spent some great time , I ate potato on the side walk , I got to meet some nice people , I got home at 6 o'clock in the morning (never been out that late!) and I got to see Alhambra with its lights totally off ,,, How come its also breathtaking when its totally black?
I Wish Real Madrid would rot in hell ,,,, they are impolite , their coach is Rudeness impersonated , they pushed , hit and yelled at Barcelona players ,,, what did Barcelona players do in return? They just shut up and wait for justice but the referee is Ok with those assholes hitting Villa and picking him from the floor in the rudest gesture I have ever seen!!! I hate Real MAdriiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiid
I was worried ever since I came to Spain this time that I might have to rush my classes in order to be able to graduate as soon as possible.

I am beyond disgusted an mad. For the second time in 2 months my roommates bring a dog home. This time they found him abandoned in a highway. They brought him to look for a family that would adopt him.

This is song that was composed and presented by a singer from Chile on the times of the Spanish Civil War ,its Spanish words go like this:
La yerba de los caminos
La pisan los caminantes
Y a la mujer del obrero
La pisan cuatro tuantes
De esos que tienen dinero
Qué culpa tiene el tomate
Que está tranquilo en la mata
Y llega un hijo de puta
Y lo mete en una lata
Y lo manda pa Caracas
Los señores de la mina
Han comprado una romana
Para pesar el dinero
Que toditas las semanas
Le roben al pobre obrero.
Cuando querrá Dios el cielo
Que la tortilla se vuelva
Que la tortilla se vuelva,Que los pobres coman pan
حشائش السبيل يدوسها العابرون
و امرأة العامل يدوسها بضعة أنذال
من أولئك الذين يملكون المال
ما الذنب الذي اقترفته الطماطم
الماكثة بهدوء على شجيرتها
ثم يأتي ابن عاهرة و يضعهعا في علبة
و يرسلها إلى كاراكاس
مالكو المنجم اشتروا قباناً
التي يسرقونها على امتداد الاسابيع
من العامل الفقير
عندما يريد رب السماء
لعله يرجع الغذاء
لعل الفقراء يأكلون الخبزو لعل الأغنياء يأكلون الخراء الخراء
I took this picture on the bus stop. I never arrived late at any cultural activity here, but the bus just would arrive!! The group went inside Alcazaba without me and they left my name with the guy on the door. When I arrived I asked him: Did a group enter and leave a name? and he said: Yes , are you Takwa? .... Godddddd a guard in Alhambra had my name and was expecting me! How glorious is that?!
Those are the flags on the top of Torre de La Vela. They are not ordered as they are supposed. Starting from the left: Flag of European Union , Flag of Andalucia Region ,Flag of Spain , Flag of Granada. They put Andalucia ahead of Spain! Interesting!
Today I noticed a crack in the bell , and Mari Carmen said that the legend of women ringing the bell in January the 2nd in order to get married is just ridiculous. I think so as well! This day is one of two things: Its either the day in which Castilla ended the Arab-Muslim control and ended the occupation, or its the day in which tolerance and common living ended in Al Andalus once and for ever . Based on both interpretations women getting married is just a stupid concept that has nothing to do with the day!
See the empty space in the horizon ? Its a valley and the only crack in the belt of mountains that surround Granada . It was the place from where the Catholic kings entered a conquered Granada.
Those two symbols (Above and under) where moved in the core of the ceramics of Alhambra , the one above is the symbol of the Catholic Kings -the two headed eagle- and the one above is the symbol of the Nazari dynasty: There is no winner but God (what an ugly translation!!)
Those are some interesting symbols engraved on the walls, The pine symbolizes the union and the power that springs from it. The shell symbolizes the position of praying in which a servant of the lord curls and reflexes on his/her inside and connects with God .
I will always envy Washington Irving because he got to live in Alhambra while all I can is run in it trying to see things before the day is over.
This house is one of three houses left where people who worked for the royal family used to live.
I am a bit closer to the picture of me that I picture inside my head.
There is one more thing that does not have a photo but it is the most important and touching of all: Today I got to see the Lions of the Plaza de los Leones ... the lions that always appeared in all the pictures of Al Andalus. They are being reformed , and now they are being exhibited in a hall inside one of Alhambra's palaces ,, its surrounded with security , pictures cant be taken inside the hall , and in the back ground there was the attractive recorded voice of a man reciting arabic poetry in which the lions were mentioned.
