During our break from gluing wallpaper we had the most wonderful coffee in the sun. Postcards with the design are free and available at Normo Coffee.

Here it is! The renewed version of the Daar is Wally wallpaper. The pictures are a little bit too faded because I was using an old film. Will take some better ones soon.

a new toy

As a birthday present I got an analog camera. The pictures are so much nicer! It takes a while to have them developed but the result is way better isn't it? This was in Valencia.

back to Europe

I don't have the artist's name unfortunately.

There was one other artist who grabbed my attention and whose name I did not forget, Dario Villalba. Beautiful work.

Cob oven is the way to go.

Mix all of the ingredients together and cover the dough for a few minutes. Lay out the dough and cut out 1 cm thick cookies. They can be put quit close together on the tray for the oven since they do not get any bigger. For a little bit of shine, brush some honey on top of the cookies.
Enjoy! I sure did.

punta rojo

Named after the red dot.

These are very dry cookies. They are not too sweet and great as a snack.

1 lb sugar
1 table spoon baking soda
2 lb flour
1 egg
1 bag of cinnamon powder
milk and salt (mixed in a small bowl)
a little bit of oil
0.5l water
