Chilli Palmer Band – Hamburg

Last August, we moved to Hamburg and one of the main challenges I am facing is the rebuild/build of my contact network and build business relationships.

Slowly I’ve been meeting people, making some new friends and working with things I never tought I would be doing in order to adapt faster and at the same time have an income so we can in the future do more things.

Fast forward to December, it’s been 4 months and my uncle called me, asking if I was interrested in shooting a concert that week. Of course I was interrested. I made a new friend in town that week and was led to an amazing experience, had to chance to appreciate a great band and great music. The concert was organized by ERGO.

In the begining it was a bit frightening since I was probably the only person in the room who didn’t…

Remember, remember the 5th of November

Remember, remember!
The fifth of November,
The Gunpowder treason and plot;
I know of no reason
Why the Gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot! – English Folk Verse

So, one year ago Edy and I got married for the second time, but first time in Church, we picked the 5th of November, not only because of the movie and the awesome poem to remember the date but also because Edy’s family could fly to Mexico in low season. Yes, they crossed half world to be with us that day.

They came some couple of days before the big day, we had the opportunity to go with them to the holy city of Teotihuacan (‘the place where the gods were created’) is situated some 50 km north-east of Mexico City. Built between the 1st and 7th centuries A.D., it is characterized by the vast size of its monuments – in particular, the Temple of Quetzalcoatl and the Pyramids of the Sun and the Moon, laid out on geometric and symbolic principles. As one of the most powerful cultural centres in Mesoamerica, Teotihuacan extended its cultural and artistic influence throughout the region, and even beyond. *Text in italics taken from UNESCO web page*.

HSV primeros dias

Como Ana dijo una vez:

“A este lugar le falta un poquito de CAOS.”

Sip, este es Hamburg, un lugar hiper tranquilo en el que no pasa nada. Llegamos hace 2 semanas y ademas de enfrentar burocracia (si hay mucha), salimos a conocer algunos lugares.

No pudimos salir mucho porque con el constante cambio de clima, Ana se puso un poco enferma.

Llegamos un Martes ya por la noche, entonces ese día ya no hicimos mucho,  solo nos instalamos, llegar en casa, cenar y a descansar, también tomamos un poquito de vino que mi tía/prima Ramona tenia para nosotros.


El otro dia ya salimos y fuimos a visitar mi tio avo Caia, el papa de Ramona- por eso mi prima/tia, que es en realidad mi tia, pero como tienen la misma edad do que yo, se quedo prima 😉 – que ha vivido en Hamburgo desde los años 70. En los seguintes dias salimos a tratar de los papeles, pero el clima por aqui es un poco loco. Nos dijeron que en el mismo dia tienes que salir con ropa de calor, frio, lluva y viento.

Luego les cuento un poco mas de esta nueva aventura.

Les Dejo algunas fotos de nuestros primeros dias.

Queretaro, one last time this year

Our last weekend in Queretaro this year.

On Thursday, we traveled to Queretaro, a city in the State of … Queretaro, yes, it’s something Mexico has, lots of cities with the names of the state. We went to see Ana’s family, by her dad’s side. We got there right before lunch, which was perfect timing if you ask me, and avoided lots of traffic since a little bit latter it would have been rush our and we are not vey fond of rush hours in big cities.

Today is a very important day in my career.

A couple months ago, I got a proposal from a new art institute in Mexico that is about to start, to be part of the team who will be doing online courses. Continue reading
