China

Ana sent me lots of teas. I opened one teabag today and I found this proverb written on it. It's funny because I'm flying to Shanghai tomorrow. I'll be off 15 days but I will try to post if I can. I'm nervous. I've never been in China, it'll be an adventure!

Cookies!!!

Last week I found the perfect recipe for chocolate and cranberries cookies.

And after having the cookies I went to Estampa 2007: The international print and contemporary art edition. I was a little bit disapointed but I discover how much I love engravings.
There were a lot of screenprintings but most artists don't do it themselves. They use big machines and the finished art is so perfect that I feel it has no charm. To get this level of perfection I prefer printing. love to see little imperfections in the screenprintings made at home or at the artist's studios.
But I found a female artist (I cant remember the name!!) that makes glass-fiber sculptures.They are very original and they are even better in person!! You wish you could hug them!

I was downtown yesterday and i thought about taking some pictures to show you how beautiful Madrid is during this season but it started to rain and i ran around from one place to another like a rabbit into his hole.
