Food: Giovanna @ Blue Jelly Beans Increible Comida

Spain’s Giovanna at Blue Jelly Beans has the most delectable cuisine often with a Latin flair. Panamanian born and now residing in Spain, she has an eye for food preparation and photography. If the recipes (photo’s) seem repetitive…she posts in English and Español.

TdF: Tour de France

I mention this each season, I always enjoy the Tour de France (TdF). I don’t follow the bike racing scene other than this one race. 21 days of ‘stages’ I most enjoy the mountain stages in the Alps and like today in the Pyrenees. The chaos at the top, the narrow passages at 10-18% gradients and pucker up downhill portions are fascinating to watch, to imagine. They (the cyclist) don’t fit any profile (physically) I usually come to admire in sports. But their courage, endurance and even strength is obviously there. Kind of like misunderstanding the fitness of a jockey.

TdF Map 2012

This year Bradley Wiggins of the UK, has the chance to be the first Brit to win the TdF. Best wishes. Most enjoyable to me is the scenery gained from the helicopter traveling the race route. If you know team/individual bike racing (cycling), you already understand the strategies, names and terminology. Took me a bit, but now I understand it as if watching a baseball game. Today is a perfect stage (Limoux to Foix) to see the crazy fanatics (fans), color, scenery and celebration of the TdF.

SwittersB & the Tomatina (Chiste)

I am just back from Spain. I had intended to attend the running of the bulls event. But, age and injuries precluded that. I decided to attend the Tomatina event. I came away with a new appreciation for how hard an under ripe tomato can feel against your face. Also, I came away with new salsa recipes.

Your view of me is obscured by the torrent of tomatoes. I am standing right in front of the guy with the funky argyle print T. A chica is trying to remove the pulp from my nostrils. Reuters pic (Chiste)

“Revellers on a truck throw tomatoes into the crowd during the annual “Tomatina” (tomato fight) in the Mediterranean village of Bunol, near Valencia, August 31, 2011. The origin of the tomato fight is disputed – everyone in Bunol seems to have a favourite story – but most agree it started around 1940…” Reuters
