Weekend diary, part 3

Saturday, 24 November (continued, still)

Not so much to read this time around, but a couple of videos to watch.

The first is yet more walking. We did a lot of that, did I mention? This time through the lovely Turia Park.

The second video is from the jaw-dropping City of Arts & Sciences, just wandering around leisurely.

I love the sounds on both of these video clips, just stuff and sometimes chit chat and sometimes industrial clanging or children shouting. But sometimes just an incredible silence that is almost unfathomable in the middle of a huge city. Wonderful.

Thanks for watching. And have a great weekend.

Martha: He's pretty rad dude, right? Y'know, but I hardly noticed the silence while there, in the moment. It's only now, cutting some footage together, that I listen and hear nothing. Amazing...

Milla: I know. And vast. you must go. No, that's not me speaking in Italian. Valencia e' piena di italiani. Pienissima, cioe'! The red coat helps me to not get lost...

Milla, if my coat is very now it's because it went out of fashion and came into fashion again! I bought it in New York in 2002...

what a spectacular place. And Reds jacket included. Some things are just classics no matter what year you get them in.

I'm in the 'monstrous carbuncle' mindset of old Charlie. Can't beat traditional architecture. It's got soul.

To both of you that was awsome and Red you are very beautiful. You have a lucky hubby and Asterisk you are lucky to have her. Thanks for sharing.

Wonderful videos - with the sounds, easy to get caught up in a certain wonderful mood of the places. Those buildings are awesome. Oh, I want to go there!
