Sabes que ?

The time start to run. Day by day  is faster and faster like on the race! And is good to stop from time to time and be quite. Really good place to do this kinde of sesions, to stop is lake witch I discovered with Kike tree weeks ago. It’s my secret place my paradise and why I don’t wont tell  localisation.  I have been there two times, firs was on Monday and we didin’t find nobady there was empty and silent how I like. The secondo time we decided to stay there on night. I took the tent and also Kike had one. We spent there one night. Came on Sunday around 3 p.m. by highchiking (we I mean girls, had lucky becouse our trip from Brasov was like 1.5 hours but for boys  the way took them a lot of time hmmm 😉 We meet a very soft storm there and this same time in Brasov was sunny. Finnaly we spent perfect night there with fire place. Mayby night wasn’t a good becouse too hard grand and dogs witch atactted our place but finalny we are good and relax and we want come back there.

Would you know my name if I saw you in Heaven?


…….Would you know my name if I saw you in Heaven?…. Would you feel the same if I saw you in Heaven?
I must be strong and carry on,
‘Cause I know I don’t belong here in Heaven

Would you hold my hand if I saw you in Heaven?
Would you help me stand if I saw you in Heaven?
I’ll find my way, through night and day,
‘Cause I know I just can’t stay here in Heaven

Time can bring you down, time can bend your knees
Time can break your heart, have you begging please, begging please

Beyond the door, there’s peace I’m sure
And I know there’ll be no more tears in Heaven

Would you know my name if I saw you in Heaven?
Would you feel the same if I saw you in Heaven?
I must be strong and carry on,
‘Cause I know I don’t belong here in Heaven

My city's ornaments

Is summertime and it’s too hot. However, I need to go out now more than ever because is the best time to enjoying within the nature. The fact of living in Brasov makes it easier, because its green and thick forests are really wonderful. I like to wake up at 6.00 am and running around the city. One of my favourite route is going up through the Tâmpa. This route could be perfect, unless some points are full of rubbish….how can it be possible?

I am doing this route from two months ago and the rubbish doesn’t disappear, neither decreases its amount, nor changes its state. It means a lot of things. It means that no one is in charge of the cleaning, it means that no one takes care about what others do, it means that people who usually go there don’t complain nowhere, for instance, to the town-hall. Since the rubbish doesn’t melt into the sand we can say that it isn’t organic materials. Chemical products don’t fit well into the nature. All is full of empty plastics. The worst is that in many cases are citizen themselves, that is to say, Romanian people throwing the rubbish into the forest. They are less consciousness that foreigners who come to visit the city, that is crazy!! But when I see this view, a lot of questions appear in my brain: Who should take care of that issue? ¿The citizens,  Governments, foreigners? If citizens don’t feel this space as something part of them, worthy and finite, who will feel it? No one! If citizens don’t believe in what they have, in the incredible potential of this wonderful background that Brasov have, no one will take care of it, no one will enjoy with it. This is very sad. There are many things which must not be done by Governments. The personal attitude and  consciousness are the best tools in order to produce a real change in the society for a long therm.  Trying to be better makes you the best.

I am Carmen Blázquez, a humboldt volunteer working in a small association here in Brasov. However, my curiosity has made possible travelling a lot around Europe and out of it.  I am not Willy Fog, that famous cartoon, a lion who made the travel around the world in 80 days. However, I have been in some countries whose cities are not comparable in beauty with respect to Brasov. Its middle-age heritage, its location and the strange mixture of historic events and nature make really special this city. I believe it….and you? Do you want to start believing something and stop of throwing rubbish on your own roof?

This is not concerned with the education, it depends on what lifestyle you prefer, how do you want to live, and what you are will be projected to and seen by the others.

People say I’m the life of the party
Because I tell a joke or two
Although I might be laughing loud and hearty
Deep inside I’m blue
So take a good look at my face
You’ll see my smile looks out of place
If you look closer, it’s easy to trace
The tracks of my tears..
I need you, need you
Since you left me if you see me with another girl
Seeming like I’m having fun
Although she may be cute
She’s just a substitute
Because you’re the permanent one..
So take a good look at my face
You’ll see my smile looks out of place
If you look closer, it’s easy to trace
The tracks of my tears..
I need you, need you
Outside I’m masquerading
Inside my hope is fading
Just a clown oh yeah
Since you put me down
My smile is my make up
I wear since my break up with you..
So take a good look at my face
You’ll see my smile looks out of place
If you look closer, it’s easy to trace
The tracks of my tears

Euro-Cup 2010: Interview with Enrique Garrandés

Posted by on Tuesday, July 3, 2012 · Leave a Comment 

Considering the amazing victory of Spain in the Euro-cup 2012, I thought it could be a great idea  an interview about sport, fútbol and Spanish issues with Enrique Garrandés, an EVS volunteer, specially engaged with Spanish football. He becomes a freak when “football” is the background. He practiced football with his father since he was a child. That’s curious because at first, he didn’t like football. It was almost the only one among all guys in school who didn’t play during breaks. Time after was integrating inside the football background and he believes that this practice is fruitful for socializing and competing with friends. When he was 8 years started playing seriously.

Do you remember something specially when you started playing football?

I remember that I could have a computer since my first experience with football because my father is computer engineer. He bought me FIFA computer game with only 9 years and I became so obsessed that he had to create a secret code in the computer in order to stop my feber!!! I also remember my first football match: February 23th 2007 Real Madrid- Oviedo 6-1.

Since Enrique had conscious he started to buy MARCA guide and check even international teams. His friends called him the “little Maldini”, in memory of a well-known Spanish football-speaker who is a great expert in football. He can remember all kinds of details from matches played even 20 years ago! But after this long background above Enrique’s relation with football, let’s speak a bit about Spanish selection in the Euro-cup 2012.

Enrique, what is your whole opinion about the team selected by del Bosque?

For me del Bosque has been very clever, anyone expected this amazing results and even this composition and strategy. As far as I know, the selection for this year changed its traditional composition, considering that most of the best players were injured. However, the trainee knew smell the potential of his team, to be confident and keep the calm. The results are evident and even some defenses got to mark a gol!!! Indeed we are champions not only in the absolute team, but also in Sub19 and Sub21…Spain has a good future in the football league.

The best moments you remember, what is your favourite session?

I prefer the final, because shows a strong selection, and without front! But in the whole, the play was very regular. At the beginning with  this neutral  1-1 with Italy. In the semifinal with Portugal Spain only revealed some of its potential in the last minutes, but in general Spanish team lost quite ball possession.


Maybe the play is no so fluent because other teams tend to study our strategy, and more considering that Spain has a very good path. This irregurality can be explained because players changed, consequently also the strategy changed.

What is your favourite player?

Undoubtedly, Iniesta. I think that only he can represents the difference. He has a lot of technique and he developed a lot his potential within FC Barcelona.

How was for you living the Euro-cup 2012 in Rumania?

I really felt very well. I have seen most of the matches in a Bar close to my home and I didn’t have any problem. Romanian people even my colleagues from my work supported me a lot. Sometimes I missed my friends and Colón, in Madrid, where the town-hall manage a great depict for that days. Here I also felt  very welll!!

Do you want to tell something special about how you lived Euro-cup 2012?

It was curious for me, but I saw a match from Albania, other in Macedonia. I also saw the match Spain-Croatia with one of my best friends here, Ana, a polish woman. She was very supportive and I felt hot and good feelings, very similar to the experience of being with my Spanish friends! I have a special jock….when I kiss my t-shirt usually this team wins….Now, and considering that the location for this Euro-cup was Poland and my friends here also are from Poland, I like to say that next time Poland will be winner!!

….(although, if Spain is alive…will be difficult. However, as our  clever Polish colleague Olga says: “never say never”).

We (me and Oggy) decided to go Lacul Tarlung. We find a car for Scale…

He took us to close to century of Scele, thanks to him. after that we tried to hitchhike again to go Lacul Tarlung. We met a boy who lives there , we asked to Lacul Tarlung’s way…  and he started to talk about the way and Lacul Tarlung. He said about the way “Dangerous and a lots of gypsies will be on the way…..etc.” he is like a hellhound, he didn’t give any good news  about way. Oggy begin to fear about way but I wasn’t J because I am stupid…. 🙂 Actually we had a big question mark about way, therefore we went to 7 scari . 

It was amazing….





We  didn’t climbed top of mountain because we hadn’t enough time we said next time “we will do it”

We come back to place which we can eat something…





Oggy was tired and he slept about 10-15 min.


I think ; Mountains is a different world, it’s like a parallel universe….
