Dear Manchester

3 weeks in Manchester, so far so good.

I have done a little of everything, went out to see some football fans by the stadiums, and see how is the environment, went to night clubs for freelance works, received ridiculous contract to work as a night photographer – didn’t accept of course – made videos of the fans in the exciting Manchester Derby.

First things first.

Chilli Palmer Band – Hamburg

Exposure 37

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*.

Resident… Evil

La paciencia es la fortaleza del débil y la impaciencia, la debilidad del fuerte.-
Immanuel Kant

Viernes 13…. 🙂 … las noticias de esta semana:

Oficialmente soy residente en Alemania, ya no soy una turista más… mis tres meses como turista terminaban el día 31 de octubre, después de varios intentos en migración sin éxito alguno ya tenía dos opciones:

Opción 1: Salir de Alemania e ir por tres meses *así lo estipula la ley de Alemania, debes salir 90 días para poder regresar como turista* a Suiza, Noruega, Suecia, Finlandia…. Bora Bora, jajaja

Opción 2: Regresar a la Gran Tenochtitlán… lo cual hubiera sido padre ya que así podría ver a mi Lula quien cumplió 8 años ayer… le pedí a la vida que le mandaran de regalo una ardilla o un gato para perseguir un rato… mi mamá me dijo que vieron un gato durante su caminata matutina, pero no la dejó perseguirlo, pero sólo porque no sabía que era la vida cumpliendo mi solicitud.

Bueno, ayer 12 de octubre, estoy como residente, así que esas dos opciones no serán posibles por el momento, aunque espero Edino me lleve a Bora Bora pronto 🙂

P.D. El título es referencia a la película de zombies, no tiene nada que ver con mi comportamiento en Alemania 🙂
