Scotland: shades of green

These pictures were taken in 2007 and 2008, most of them in a tour I took around Scotland with my brother jusf before I left. It was a nice goodbye. So, before I get emotional, here are some pictures taken at Edinburgh, Portree and the Highlands.

Animal Farm

Animal Farm was one of the first books in English I ever read and I've grown to be a huge Orwell fan. I remember getting really angry while I was reading it.I think I was quite young but my dad was really into politics and we always ended up talking about it even though many things must have escaped me. So remembering the impact it had on me and finding a really nice edition in Spanish, I thought it would make a good present for my teenage cousin. I'm always up for giving books as presents and although I know he probably only reads videogame magazines or similar, I'm still insisting. I hope he reads it and if he does, I'm sure he's going to like it. If not, I'm sure his parents will appreciate the intention.

Porto

 I am intending to travel a bit this year but for now I'm showing some pictures taken in my last trips. I was in Porto almost two years ago visiting one of my friends. I loved Porto, the houses, especially the abandoned ones, wandering around steep streets, the food,  the bars and the magical colours it has. It's a wonderful city and I'd love to go back to Portugal at some point, if only for the pastéis de Belém.
