Hello, I’m cooking fresh fish with cider over a trangia camping stove in sunny Galicia, northern Spain.
With videography by Evan Roberts, this youTube is pretty self explanatory.
The actual location is a campsite at Camping Moreiras, O Grove, Pontevedra, Galicia. The fish, a whole monkfish, came from the fish market on the harbour at O Grove itself, as did the vegetables and the cider is an Asturian Sidra Natural obtaine en route from one of many Eroski supermarkets.
Just a bit of fun really, but it captures one of many happy mealtimes from a memorable holiday touring Asturias and Galicia in September 2011. There are loads of photos online at both my collection and Linda’s Flickr photostreams.
Murcia is Spain’s most seismically active area and suffered earthquake tremors in 2005 and 1999. It is close to the large faultline beneath the Mediterranean Sea where the European and African continents meet.A Murcia regional government statement said eight people, including one child, had died in the two quakes at Lorca which seriously damaged many buildings and crushed vehicles. A total of 167 people were treated in hospitals in the city.
Television images showed cars that were crushed by falling rubble, and large cracks in buildings.via posterous
Some interesting ships can be seen docked in the Thames, such as the Greenwich warship a couple of years ago. This weekend brought a Spanish Navy training ship, the four masted tall ship called Juan Sebastián de Elcano which is one of the largest and oldest tall ships still operational.
The video was taken from onboard one of the Hurricane Clipper river boat catamarans which provide a commuter service as well as sightseeing on the river Thames and now accept Oystercard onboard for payment as well as pre-paid tickets.
It was the last day in Calabardina, and the sun set perfectly between the twin peaks, not into the thin band of cloud that usually suspends above the horizon, but clearly into the distant mountain ranges of the southern Spanish sierras.
