Flying dragons

(Credit: iStockphoto/Jeryl Tan)
Two days ago we were in Siem Reap and during the sunset I saw some giant bats flying, I showed them to Robert and he said that those were birds.

Today we saw them again, they called them Fruit Bats and they are huge! The fly during the day and they are really batman like.

But the most impressive thing were the milions of bats we saw leaving their cave, here's some videos that show the amount of bats:

They really look like huge dragons flying and they make amazing shapes:

Cambodia's national sport: lice hunting

Thanks for the photo to kmfblog

Having had lice as a kid myself I find really funny to see so many people looking for lice and having so much fun killing them.

The very first two people that I saw after crossing the Thai border into Cambodia where a couple of girls and they seemed to have a lot of fun looking for lice.
Today drove through a number of villages and every five houses you can see people practicing this fantastic sport. I have never tried it, but it sounds like fun!

For  the people looking for new business activities, there is some business to be done killing lices in Cambodia!

Pigs feet, grasshoppers,...

Image from Lao voices
It is always fun to think about all the strange things we eat, here's a list of mine:
  • Pigs feet, I love them, specialy the ones they used to make in Fontfaja
  • Rotten cheese from France
  • Botifarra de perol: sausage made with all the organs you can think of
  • Robert ate pigs heart the other day...
  • And the last new thing in my repertoir: a yummy delicious grasshopper! We were buying springrolls and the lady in the next stall was sellilng all kinds of fried bugs, she gave me a grasshopper to try and I didn't hesitate! After I had the grasshopper she wanted me to try some king of worm but it looked to disgusting. The grasshopper was actually very good and tasted really clean, something I could snack on!

How can I feel homesick when I have the Barcelona team all day around me? Here's a list of some places where I find them:

  • I wake up, go to 7Eleven to buy a water, I open the fridge and they are on the water bottle that I will buy (the cheapest).
  • I go pay and they are behind the counter in a poster.
  • I turn the corner and a huge sticker with their faces is on the bus.
  • I go to the swimming pool, on thet way there I go by a pub, their rough faces are everywhere. The Real Madrid clean faces are next to them.
  • Go for a bike ride on the country side, the houses may not have doors but they sure have a huge Chang-Barcelona canvas hanging from the balconies.
  • I am in Bangkok and I get in the subway right next to Messi's eye. 
  • Robert gets a mineral water and they they are again!
Home sweet home!

Vacaciones en los alpes franceses: Grenoble, 2011

El verano pasado pasé mis vacaciones en Grenoble cerca de los Alpes franceses, una ciudad preciosa y totalmente recomendable. Dormí en la carabana llamada James que una família muy especial me dejó. Digo que son una família especial porqué entre muchas cosas, han viajado por muchos sitios del mundo en un Tandem, este es su sueño. Les encontré gracias a CouchSurfing y siempre les estaré agradecida porqué son una gran inspiración de como es posible vivir la vida a la medida de cada uno. Aquí va la ilustración. En el margen derecho podemos su tandem :-)

Un ésser perfecte

Igual que TOTS els ciutadans de Tailandia, estic en fase d'enamorament d'aquest personatge tot poderós que és el rei. Ell ho sap fer tot, fa fotos, toca la guitarra, el saxo, el piano, dissenya obres de gran infrastructura, salva al seu poble de la pobresa, coneix al nostre estimat generalísimo, parla amb Elvis, passa una temporada d'introspecció quan es fa monjo... què més es pot demanar?
El rei del rock i el rei de Tailandia

El rei tocant la guitarra

El rei budista

El rei toca amb músics de renom

El rei compositor

El rei suant

El rei i la seva inseperable càmera
D'aquí a unes setmanes us explicaré més coses, no m'agraden els grisos.
Llarga vida al rei!

Sydney sobre ratlles, 2010

Com podeu veure, Sydney em va agobiar una mica.
