Vadso, a stunning view to the Arctic

When the famous explorer of tragic death Roald Amundsen, first to reach the South Pole during his epic Antarctic expedition in 1912, headed for the opposite end of the globe (90º north) sailing on the Italian zeppelin Norge, he made a last stopover in Vadso, where the mast is still on foot that serviced the … Continue reading »

Sevettijärvi, where the wind turns round

…But there has been more to Inari than just indulging myself in yearnings and self-pity. In fact, it has turned out one of the liveliest days in my journey, so far. I think, for instance, of the Spanish couple who work for free in Villa Lanca. Who was to say? Seven thousand kilometres from Spain, … Continue reading »

The stupidest tour of my life

Had it not been so distressing, this day could have even passed for funny; and I actually hope that later on, looking back, I’ll be able to laugh at it. But, for the moment being, I can only feel the frustration. So, I had bought an airplane ticket to Hong Kong for visiting my girlfriend–or, … Continue reading »

The Decalogue of illegal immigration

1. For admitting inmigrants in Spain, first we must make sure we want them. We don’t need more unemployed people. Charity, well understood, begins at home. Let kindness to the next not turn into lack of kindness to ourselves. 2. Once we’re sure we can provide for them, welcome those who come in legally. We … Continue reading »
