That's me!

That's me in Barcelona, just one week ago...I was there for a short holiday from my new job. I'm working in an advertisement agency, specialized in yachts and luxury bags...exactly what I always dreamt of:)!
Anyway job is job, I'm quite satisfied...I'm planning to graduate this summer, around July!

Some months ago...

Hej guys!
It has been long long time...but not so much! One year ago we were all together in Aarhus, enjoying big parties, friday bars and huge international dinners...3 months ago we were in Bologna, doing more or less the same things :)
Time has come to hear some news from each others! How are you, how's going life after erasmus? I miss you all, and I notice that in very different moments..when I remind for an instant how life used to be in Denmark...
Hope to see you all again, at least once in my life (maybe more:)!

And don't forget to check out for "I want a fork in bologna" on YOUTUBE...maybe you'll recognize some actors :P

Hi guys!

Yay, I can post now! My trip home was fine, isn't it weird when everyone around you is suddenly speaking in a language you understand?? After hearing so much Danish, it was overwhelming when everyone in the airport was speaking English! And it is weird that I am more shy about asking people for help, even though now I know that they all understand me. People in America are not always so friendly, I realized (but some of us are!! ) :-) I am happy to be in Boston because it is easier to adjust, I don't need to have a car here...and actually, it is becoming popular to ride bikes around the city, but it is WAY more dangerous than riding bikes in Denmark!! The car drivers are not so aware of the bikers....

Anyway I'm thinking of all of you and hoping you arrived at home well! (And Franca, I hope you find a home... )

KISSES from across the ocean....

As you know,tomorrow we will haVe a TAPAS DINNER.
Tapas are tipical spanish,so like a good "hispanica" that i am,i have to tell you the history of its.

"Years,years ago ,when the dragons still were living together with the humans..."

oh,sorry this is another history.

La Tapa so as to be meaningful, has to be eaten between main meals as food that allows the body to survive until lunch or dinnertime.

Some authors assert that the tapa was born when, due to an illness, the Spanish king Alfonso the 10th, the Wise, had to take small bites of food with some wine between meals. Once recovered from the disease, the wise king decreed that no wine was to be served in any of the inns in the land of Castile , unless accompanied by something to eat. This was a wise precaution to counteract the adverse effects of alcohol on those people who, through lack of money to buy a nourishing meal, drank alcohol on an empty stomach.
Apart from the story of the royal disease we should consider the theory that the tapa first appeared because of the need of farmers and workers of other unions to take a small amount of food during their working time, which allowed them to carry on working until time for the main meal.

This main meal, rich in fat, was so heavy to digest that a “siesta” had to be taken for a couple of hours before going back to the fields or to the workshop. Longer working hours in the morning meant an easier workload after the meal.

Wine was the natural accompaniment to this snack, as it induced a mellow mood and increased strength, while in winter it warmed the body as protection against very cold days in the fields and in the workshops of the Middle Ages. In summer, the drink taken in the South was “gazpacho” (cold tomato soup), instead of wine, which increased body heat rather than providing the necessary cold refreshment.

The snack is called “alifara” in northern Spain , Aragón and Navarra; and later, in the Vasque Country, it began to be called “poteo”, because the wine had to be drunk in “potes” (jars).

Once the “botillerias” (bottle-shops) and “tabernas” (taverns) became established throughout Spain , the wise King’s decree remained in place. For that reason, the glass or jar of wine was served covered with a slice of either smoked ham or cheese, for two reasons: first to prevent insects or other impurities falling into the jar and secondly, for the guests to soak up the alcohol they had drunk with something solid, as King Alfonso had advised. This was the origin of the tapa, a solid food that covered the wineglass and a word rooted in Spanish tradition. And so the tradition of the tapa spread throughout Spain , and continues right up to the present day. Many other countries have adopted the tapa, serving it in many different ways.

Because of the length of time between the early-morning breakfast, and the midday meal, which in fact is really only eaten in the early evening, some Mediterranean countries have adopted the custom of taking a “tentempié” (snack), an appetizer or the “tapita”. This break gives people a chance to socialize and to discuss work-related topics.

The traditional drink with the tapa is wine, either “peleón” (young and cheap) or “reserve” wine (matured in oak-barrels) of each region: young “txakolí” in the Basque Country, Penedés wine or Cava in Cataluña, “ribeiro” in the Northwest, young Valdepeñas or Rioja wine in Castile and in the centre, or fine sherry in the south. In Asturias and in northern parts, where apples grow in abundance, cider replaces wine.
Tapas recipes vary according to the taste and gastronomic traditions of each region
Tapas can be eaten at lunch or dinner if the quantity or variety of tapas is enough to satisfy the appetite. But without any doubt, the most singular aspect of the “tapeo” (the art of eating tapas) is its ability to bring together people from all walks of life who gather round the table to enjoy this informal ritual together.

Despite the elegance of the tapeo and its aesthetic ritual, there is a measure of indifference to both table and seating arrangements and even to the food itself, which, although delicate and tasty, is eaten standing up an in such small quantities, that people refer to this action as pecking at the food, bird-like ("picar") instead of "eating" (comer). At the time of tapeo conversation plays an integral part of the tapeo ritual. The art of eating standing up has become almost sacrosanct.
