Year of the Rooster (El año del gallo)

(Texto en español al final del blog post.)

The Roosters Year has recently begun, according to the Chinese mystic tradition. I don´t know a lot about it, but they say it will be a good year for boasting, that is… …making publicity for any new product, or new blog for that sake.  🙂 A good year for early birds. And also, I suppose, it´s going to be real colourful. That I want to celebrate! (The photos were shot in Tecpan, Guatemala on January 6th 2017)

El año del gallo acaba de empezar, según la tradición del misticismo chino.

Y también, supongo, estará lleno de colores. ¡Eso quiero celebrar! (Las fotos fueron sacadas en Tecpan, Guatemala, el 6 de enero de 2017.)

The reason is I just didn´t understand much o ...

True summer story
So when the moon rose they got up, but they could find no crumbs of bread, for the birds of the woods and of the fields had come and picked them up. Hansel thought they might find the way all the same, but they could not. They went on all that night, and the next day from the morning until the evening, but they could not find the way out of the wood, and they were very hungry, for they had nothing to eat but the few berries they could pick up. And when they were so tired that they could no longer drag themselves along, they lay down under a tree and fell asleep.
