Public workers on strike! Until now...

It's all complicated to me, but they were for sure fight for something important. They were on strike almost for a week... this means that they won't get 1/4 of their salary because of a cause!!!! This is impressive!!!! But I coulnd't find a lot of information on the net... here's something.

Sunday, sunny Sunday!

What a joy: a sunny day! And even working semmed like a "pause". I had lunch at the beach, almost slept a siesta, then when I got home and went for a long walk in the city: everybody was out, seating at the parks, riding bikes... really cool! And the best was to find out that Punta Arenas is getting zebras! Uau!!! I'm living an historical moment!

Punta Arenas - Saturday morning


All is fine! Some recent images... basically I've been working and... that's about it. Yesterday it was sunny! Yeahhh... it has been rainning a lot and they have been complaining about it here, it's not normal, it's the cambio climático, they say! But, look at the sunny pictures, can you notice how strong the sun is? That's because the ozone layer tends to desapear during this period of time and the sun is really bright (also because of the latitude factor) and ovsiasly it burns a lot! Some pictures of race cars - another working neighbour; and last, but not least, a teenager concert at the main square! Oh yeah!

The wonders of podcast

Lately, my has been my best friend during work hours. However, by now, I know all my gigas of songs by heart. So... I've (re)discovered the wonders of podcasts!!! Today I've heard an old program from Fernando Alvim, some episodes of a book by Jane Austen (from BBC), Sherlock Holmes, Estúdio Raposa... even Celtic myths. I was so happy to have someone talking to me in a melodic voice. Work went really well. My advice is to take a look at the iTunes Music Store and you can get a lot of interesting podcasts for free, including some audiobooks. Yeahhh! And now, the spanish version of FERNANDO from the ABBA! :p Yes, in Spanish... it was my music theme during the bus-taxi travel this morning! :p Just for you, from Punta Arenas:

Orgulho nacional

I'm not his fan, but if I were, as being probably the only Portuguese in Punta Arenas, I would be very proud! Inês, this post is dedicated to you!

2 springs in one year! Just great!

Spring fruits again!!! Yeah!!!

From the Mother Land - Gatos Fedorentos: Rinchoa Rinchoa

Torres del Paine

Hi! So today I went traveling... actually it was a big journey (we've covered around 900km today). It all started at 5AM, when the excursion came to pick me... I went to Torres del Paine, a fantastic natural park, but the weather was so shi)%)((%%(ty that I didn't see has much as I would have liked... however, it was worth the experience and one day out is always great! The top was that at the end the public road was closed because there were some car races and we had to wait until they finished so we could go home! :p Anyway, I saw lots of wild life, a glaciar, some "icebergs", wild nature, it was snowing... .... ... and now I'm ready to sleep! :) Have fun and "look out"!!!!

Pobre zorro

Zorro = fox

Like the foxes I saw today!
