Karvaiset kaverimme

Finnisch für Anfänger:

KARVAINEN = haarig / hairy
KAVERI = Kumpel / pal

Very fast you get true friends.
Feed one, get two siblings/cousins/friends along!
Tinto is the cool one, the small one.

Here the shy guys, the hungry shy guys.

Next time I go to the garden shop I have to remember 
to take some old bread with me, for these guys!

I cannot tell why there are so many of these donkeys
in the garden shop.

Next to te parking lot they also have other animals,
birds, goats etc.

And this shop seems to produce some agricultural stuff
as well, so it is not only a shop.
It's kind of a "Wundertüte" for all needs in your
house and garden.

Usted puede visitar la tienda de Cadena 88 en Sant Llorens D'Es., 
donde se les ofrecen los productos y servicios de la más alta calidad 
del todo el sector del bricolaje o ferretería: 
artículos para construcción, carpintería, fontanería.

In the industrial town of Inca
there is now an exhibition of a Mallorcan artist: 

His hairy friends.

Check more in this link:

Our hairy neighbours are back!

Always with kiddies.

Always staring at this black camera.

Always outside in the sun.

Not so hairy but hard:
wood been collected all over the town (Artá)
for the fires of the Sant Antoni celebrations 16-17. Feb.

Next year we have to remember to book our return flights
after this big party!

See the devils dancing:

Well, at least we could enjoy some winterly sunsets.

Kitsch pure.

Hairy indeed: Oleander seeds.

Yes yes.

Watch out with these hairy fellas,
seen in Montuïri - more pics to follow.

Baluard and CaixaForum

Artsy visit to Palma.

Palomas chilling round the corner of the entrance of the
Es Baluard, THE museum of modern art.

The views from the museum's roof are pretty amazing.

Check this, sunny and green.
The weather forecast promised snow,
but only for the Tramuntana mountains.

The refugee theme exhibition in the museum was pretty ...
depressing? Not even that.

Look at this, so much space.
Space for you thoughts, maybe.

In the museumshop I found these BLABLA-books!
How cool is this then, these books are really sold,
at least they are offered to be bought ...

There is this guy who has transformed books like
Kafkas The Metamorphosis, Pablo Neruda's poems 
and parts of the Bible to blabla-books.
Every syllable is translated to a "bla".

La Metamorfosis, de Franz Kafka, traducida del alemán 
sustituyendo cada sílaba con un bla.

Los veinte poemas de amor y una canción desesperada, de Pablo Neruda, 
traducidos sustituyendo cada sílaba con un bla.

El Génesis traducido del castellano sustituyendo cada sílaba con un bla.

No, I did not (yet) buy any of those blabla books.
If you are interested click here for more info:

Kind of spiderman selfie of the faun.

Even though the internet page of Caixa only in in Spanish,
in the exhibition you have information also in other languages,
i.e. in German.

Kunst und Mythos. Die Götter des Prado.

Die Ausstellung bietet einen guten Überblick
über die griechisch-römische Mythologie.
Die Hauptfiguren dieser Mythen waren in der ersten Linie
die Götter des Olymp, sie hatten das Schicksal der Menschen 
in der Hand und stiegen dabei auch zur Erde hinab, 
um sich unter sie zu mischen, dabei nahmen sie teils
menschliche Formen an, um so besser Zugang 
zu den Bewohnern der Erde zu haben.

La evolución histórica y artística de la mitología clásica, 
vista a través de una colección de obras procedentes del Museo del Prado. 
Ordenada bajo un criterio iconográfico, permite observar simultáneamente 
distintas representaciones de episodios mitológicos.

Upstairs you find works of a Spanisch artist:
Hermen Anglada-Camarasa 
(Barcelona, 1871 - Port de Pollença, 1959).

My favourite.

And here again the theme as so many times earlier: 
Why? Why such?

Go and see if you are in Palma,
visit the most beautiful building in town in Carrer de la Unió.

Winterleben in Artá

Yes, it does rain in Majorca every now and then.

Time to stay indoors.

Somehow pretty, the raindrops.

Heavy rain.

And also, for the first time, realized that the Sahara sand 
has reached Majorca!

Well, three (!) rabbits have taken over our garden.
They always greet us when we drive home in the evenings.
Any ideas how to get rid of those fast runners?

Shabby chick. Of course, from our own garden.

This has been going on already for weeks,
the market square in Artá is getting better canalization.

Winter action.

Nevertheless, Tuesday is market day in Artá
and this is the compulsory lunch.

Tinto really likes our floor heating.

But he definitely does not like to be carried!

Feliz Año Nuevo

Happy New Year!

In Spain you traditionally buy these party bags.

Bags full of party stuff. Cheap.

And buy the grapes, too, those you eat at midnight.

And then you party!!!

Of course, you wear glamorous outfits.
This is the same top, once with flash and once without.

Kippis! Chinchin, ¡Salud! Prost! Cheers!

Open Air party at Plaza del Charco with live music.
The Thunder Rockets y Orquesta Los Volcánicos.

Standing, dancing, boozing.


Local forms.

Thank you Tenerife!
Thanks LaMaSu gang, was cool with you!
