Brico Centre

What began as a small hardware store, now there are four centers of DIY in the Region of Murcia.
Brico Centro Fermin is the Murcian version of Leroy Merlin. It can find everything you need to be a handyman.
A few days ago, I bought some articles in Leroy Merlin, but I bought less than necessary, so I stopped by Brico Centro Fermin, to buy more, and I was pleasantly surprised: it was cheaper. What I had to buy was 0.40Euro cheaper, and as I had to buy 10 items, 4Euro saved me from the French DIY center.

Time To Work?

After an intense weekend, the last thing I want is to work, and what I want is to stay on the beach. But as one of my grandmothers said: the work is health. So health care must be working.

During this day, in the Santo Domingo Square of Murcia, is celebrating the Day for Hope, organized by Intermon Oxfam (here, Oxfam International), in order to exhibit their work in the third world, and to raise awareness of the need for aid needed in those countries. Also, they seek to get signatures, once and for all, to 0.7% of GDP to help the third world.
Upon reaching the place I found a crowd of people, and I have approached. To attract people, they were showing a series of youth groups, different types of dances.

Crossing Wings

It seems that the chaos caused by the Icelandic volcano, is beginning to disappear. So far, the fastest solution ever found is that the American flights arrive in Spain, and from there by train bus, boat, to the rest of Europe.

We have some very unpleasant days in the Region of Murcia.

Easter 2010. Holy Friday. Procession of "Salzillos"

Today, about 1,700 people have marched in the procession of "Salzillos". This procession is so named because all the sculptures in parade were made by Francisco Salzillo (except Our Lord Jesus Nazarene).
As you can see, all the Nazarenes have a prominent belly. It is no obesity problems, but because within their habit carry hundreds of candy, sweets, boiled eggs, etc., that are giving to the spectators. I encourage you to come one year to the Murcia processions, not only because you can see some beautiful sculptures, but also you can take you for lunch, or dinner at home. ;)
More about this procession and to see the photos that I made last year in Easter Week Label.
