Photographer's Note

Last year I was working in a little village called Santo Domingo de Silos.
Those were very happy days.
I worked as a tourist guide and I can add that I made a good work.

Also those were very nice days because the place was (and is) amazing.

Close Santo Domingo de Silos there is a place called La Yecla.

This is a narrow corridor between two mountains. And these mountains are part of the "peñas de Cervera".
Between two of them you can see the Yecla, but just in the opposite side there is no a similar corridor, but there is a small waterfall: el Churrión.


Between el Churrión and la Yecla there is another place where the mountains join, but this time you can find a path. No verticals walls, only a long path until the top of the mountain.
And, just in the down part, a wide and little valley (called Tabladillo).

All this valley is shut by the "peñas de Cervera" (I, II, III) and another mountains which belong to the "peñas de Carazo".

Santo Domingo de Silos is the first village in this valley and eight km far from Silos, is placed the last one of the valley: Quintanilla del Coco.



PD: some people say that Yecla, the name, comes from the name of an ancient Celtic princess called Elba
maybe that's not true, but I must recognize this is a very nice story

This story is not about the photo, but it is also interesting because it is about one of our friends in TE, Òscar.

Recently I told you he has been in prison.
I know he wants to share with you the next story about his time in prison.
He has grown up in different prisons and he has left in everyone of "his" prisons one gift: a teddy-bear.
Well, this time he hasn't left any present and he has come back with a teddy-bear and with a tricycle.

The teddy-bear because he found one of his old teddy-bears (he was really excited when he saw "little eyes", the teddy-bear).
And the tricycle because he had been in that very prison until he was 8 years old: he found his first tricycle.

He asked if he could bring them to his house. The answer was "yes".
You cannot imagine how happy was that moment for him.


That's the story.

PD: for now Òscar has left seven teddy-bears in different prisons (that means he has been seven times in prison) and, even, this summer he left one of this teddy-bear in a Russian prison (please, don't ask why, but this time he was innocent)


(this picture is dedicated to Òscar and to Mer)


I hope you like it.
