Public transports

Public tranports are very interesting places and if you are a writer is certainly a source of ideas and characters and i confess i am a character.
Have you imagined how diferent public transports would be if nobody wore cloths, if nowadays is a good place to catch flue imagine without cloths would be for shure a place to catch other kinds of deaseas and a new kind of conversations would appear like "i hate going on public transports, i am pregnant again".
The transports are so packed sometimes that we really become initimate with the other passengers, we even sometimes share our complains with the others and we become brothers against the bad public transports.
Public transports are good to meet people that we don't see for a long time and share the things that had happened all this time, normally not much happened, only if you really didn't see htis person for really long time. Normally when someone askes me what you have been doing i always compealed to imagine a more exiting story than just saying working, walking around etc. Wouldn't you like to say like, well, in this years i was arrested but finnally i run away and now i picked this bus so i can have hosteges so i can reach Morocco.
Public transports are also a place to see people that you really don't want to see anymore and someotimes you are compeled to speak and be the most sinick has possible, like having a very big conversation like this: Hi. Hi
You always could not speak with that person and be more true with yourshelf but then you become anti social.
When you really hate someone, you don't see him or her for long time and you see them in the bus there is always a feeling of frustantion "dam, he/she is still alive".
Public transports are good to see what is in fashion, cloths, smells.
And then is good to see that are more ugly and crasy people than you (you think they are craiser and uglies than you).

Book tips

Yeasterday i bought finnally a book that i read a long time ago that i really liked it and that i recomend to every teenager. The first time i read, i didn't know anything about it and i just tooked it from the library and started to reading. At the same time i was reading i was listening to Soul Asylum so it was a great feeling. The book i am talking about is "Flash" by Charles Duchaussois. For the ones that don't know this is the autobriography of the autor telling aboutt the time he was a junkie and travelled around the drug world between 1968 and 1970, going from France to Nepal. for me this a travell book instead of a drug book.

But now i am reading another book,"In the South Seas" by Robert Louis Stevenson the writer of the "Treasure Island", this is about a trip he took to the Marquesas, Paumuts and Gilberts Islands in the south pacific. Like many travel books the writer instead of only descibing his adventure also tryes to describe the society, culture, history and problems of the places that he visit. This even more interesting because the book is from the end of the XIX century and some of the places he visited had just left the cannibalism behind and started to open more to the western world.

If i can't travel i have to read about it and imagine being there

The photo is once more of me travelling somewhere this is a way to share Bangladesh with rest of the world

Before the flood

Imagine you live calmmly your in city, in the valley, with a great view, a river near by and one day the goverment tells you that your house is going to be under water because they are going to build a big dam flooding all the valley submerging thousands of houses. This is the story of the documentary that i saw yeasterday, "Before the flood" by Yu Yan and Yifan Li from China. This documentary focuses in all the process wich haim is to destroy all city and moving the inhabitants to a new city that has been built from the ground. The director focoses mainly in three cases, the anglican church, a familly hostel people and the resident council. You see how the new houses are atributed, how the compensation money is given to each familly, the differences in amounts between cities, the despair of the ones that won't have money and see their past being all destroyed with very few hope in the future, the resistance of the ones that don't want to leave, and more the film develops more you see the city moving to the end.
A very interesting film that i recomend, for more details do a film search because i am not a film critic :-)
legend: it's not a war zone, just the last days of the old city.

Finnaly weekend

Finally is weekend! And is time to shave and try to look preaty to go out at night!
i am tired and bored to death! this week was very dull.
I miss traveling. I am making a new atlas colection but the books are very bad. The maps are in very bad scale and of corse the information is very few, and the description of the country is wrong has the legend of some photographs, ex: gives bad information about the exports of bangladesh and in one picture says that is a rice field but in reallity is a tea field.
I have finally the google earth in my pc, and i have marked all the places i have been but i think they are very few so i have to go to more places, there so many coutrny without any of my marks

Today i spoke with a friend of mine and i am thinking on going to morocco next december. Only this dream of travelling makes me going on and happy.

Today i applyed to work in Tailand for the UN so if know someone there, please tell them to hire me

please, i also take nice photos.

It's rainning again, o no i am loosing a friend(supertamp)

It's rainning, since last sunday that is rainning and the expalnation is simple, it's rainning because there were local elections in Portugal and Saint Peters(the guy upstairs that controls the weather and the people that enters in heaven)is still crying with the results. Did you know that one of our local presidents was suposed to be arrested but ran away to brasil and only came back to years after only to become president again, and she is not in jail, great. I understand saint peter very and i think because of this is going to rain all week.
Last saturday i went to see world press photo and i recomend it to everyone that likes photo jornalism. i am also a very good photo jornalist, one of the greatest has you can see by this picture.
This photo shows the dispare of a portuguese in the midle of nowhere at Gedser(danmark) in the dark sorounded by strange charaters and spirits. Enjoy the darkness

The place in the photo is going to receive the G8 meating in a few years and is one of the most expensive baltic coastal resorts. It a nice place to have a big party, like a rave, people dancing on the beach, on the top of the castle in a totally anarck way. I love music but not all, i get tired of hearing the same things very easelly.
I like hearing and watching portuguese music but unfortunelly that kind of music is an minority compared to american music and passes in the radio or Tv. MTV Portugal is interesting,when arrived passed some portuguese videoclips but now you have to be lucky to find one. The excuse could be that Portuguese music sells very few that can be true, but when i look at the portuguse chart and see that the in first place is a portuguese group(i don't like it very much it's young girls music) and that the 4th, 7th and 10 place is also portuguese i have to ask if it's true or not that portuguese don't want to see portuguese groups, then i see american groups that i never seen or heard and or not in the top of sails.
We have MTV Portugal but is almost the same thing that having MTV Europe in my opinion

One walk around

One day in my summer corse i went
for a walk around warnemunde. i started in the beach, where there is
the big problem of the stormsurge. The autorities are recovering the dunes has a natural protectcion against the sea waves.

More east of Warnemunde we have a lot of erosion caused by the sea, many of the sand deposit in wanermunde beach comes form near bye clifs. One of the ways men found to fight the erosion was puting this stone protection

This photo was taken in one the first beach resort in the world, during the times of the east germany all this old buildings started to degradate and look abandoned, nowadays this resort is once again a place for very rich people, this two buildings are going to be recovered and in 2008 this place is going to have the G8 meeting.

This last photo i put here is form wisma a city that is in the list of world patrimony of UNESCO
Wisma is known for the three big churches, in the photo you can see the only one that wasn't all destroyed during the second world war.
The other two churches were recovered but only after the reunification of Germany

Goodbye Radio 91.6(now cidade fm)

i am very sad today!
i tought it was because of my horocope or because i stayed all sunday at home but today i discovered that was because one of the only two radios i listen i over.
The radio that i could here in 91.6 is over, one of the few radios where i could listen the clash or Sex pistols or even some strange groups that till today i don't know who they are! now this is all over. Now in 91.6 is the cidade fm one of the most comercial radios possible.
like i said there are only two radios i listen and the other i can't listen at work, so now i have no good music to listen. you could say i could listen to internet radio but for me is not the same, i could try to get mp3 but that means research work and internet at home.
So today is a very sad day.

And radio didn't have any publicity or stupid dj coments
