Something new everyday #9: Thyssen museum in Madrid

Yesterday, after 1 year in Madrid, it was about time to go to the thyssen museum, although what I was expecting were paintings of those with Jesus sad and hanged on a big wooden cross, and people around with drama faces; I’m really not crazy about those paintings, find them boring. But I went, because […]

Something new everyday #7: Hummus

Something new everyday #7: Hummus

Yes, this is my something new of the day: I made my first hummus. First, I mashed only chick peas, but when I saw how dense it was, I thought I’d better check out some kind of base recipe on internet and I quickly found out that I was missing the olive oil, the lemon, […]

Real Madrid vs. Almighty FC Barcelona

Real Madrid vs. Almighty FC Barcelona

Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide. Barça rules the place and it requires a lot of quality to disturb Barça’s supremacy. And Madrid payed again a high price; again. This one was special: after 14 years of being a faithful culé, I was attending my very first clasico from the stadium. I couldn’t have expect […]

Apply basic user cases study (for crying out loud)

I’m an advanced user of public transportation here in Madrid; I use everyday Metro+train+bus to go to work, 1 hour in the morning, and another on in the afternoon (or whenever I come back from work). And one thing annoys me pretty much, which affects my user experience, that could be so easily solved walking […]
