    This morning it is a hot morning as every one since first of july, at this moment there is 26 C. and it is 9 of the sun watch, despite here in Spain
    we have two hours more, summer time we use to live with two hours more than the rest of the world.

    When I was in London, I have to fix my watch to London´s hour an hour less than in Madrid, so we are always in a hurry, living our life with
    two hours more than the sun time.

    Cuca reminded me that today it is 14th of jully, the French National Feast, remembering “The storming of the Basille by the Paris´s people”
    on july 14th of 1789, as always she is alwayin alert about this details.

    Congratulations to all French people, specially to all who are here in ESL podcast and the Blog.

    Now Emiliano is doing lot of things, just seeing all the photos he took in England, but also some videos, very bad videos by the way, that also
    he shoot over there in those so beautiful sites.

    London is a marvellous city, fascinating by all means, he would like to live in the City but it is impossible for Cuca to go away from Madrid, but
    even it is a very expensive City.

    London has nothing to do with other European´s cities, it is just different, in all ways. By the Little he could see England is absolutely different
    Nothing to do with Europe, and I could understand now why English people wants to be out from the Continent. It is another different Nation
    from the rest of Countries in Europe.

    I like them, but even I could understand them perfectlly well now. Just a pity not to live a month or two more in Londen or another city of
    England to understand a little more this fascianting different world, at least for me, that never liked too much Spanish way of life.

    My best to all French people in their National Feast.

    It maybe a hazy lazy day of summer but nothing sloggish in eslpod land:)

    Eslpod go.

    I have been crazy busy recently so I could not be attentive here on blog.
    Well,it is my loose.
    Well, the thing is , i was juggling two part time jobs, It was a jumble at best ,but I had managed to develop a perfect system as to carrying out my routine all along in an orderly fashion.
    But ,with loosing one of the job ,I m all off kilter again.

    I m trying to put my tasks in order ,though

    Ya know , when parents throw a send-off party before kids go off to college,all they have on mind is the fact that another phase of their lives is over. The focal point of their lives is not their kids anymore and that they are not gonna see their kids as often. Well,the only thing that is still reassuring is the conviction that their kids are on the right path towards prosperity and wealth.
    Well, Years go by quickly, and before they know it , they are attending their kids convocation ceremony with the usual candy and flowers in the commencement speech.
    All is good ;all is happy.
    it is not until the following morning that the harsh reality hit them hard : ” they need to build a career . they need to land a job”
    well, that my friend would be their political reality :))
    Well ,I must say , tough luck !!
    5 years passing and they are still trying( finding a job) . But , the truth is they have been trying already ( tried and worned out. At the end of their wits )

    Hey, folks
    Don’t look far . Back here , I m a living proof.
