Have you ever felt that you have been transported back in time? Or maybe, to the set of a movie?
There are some places on earth that have this effect to them. You get to them, and you can see the blue skies, feel the fresh air. Maybe smell the scent of food being cooked somewhere. On occasions, you can smell the ocean. You look around you, and you can find yourself facing an amazing natural or man-made structure. A place that resonates with age, that makes you feel the events it has witnessed. You can imagine maybe a priest, a knight, a princess or even a dragon walking where you are standing.
I have felt that several times in my life. Both in my country, and in some other places. but last week I had a deja vú-like experience visiting one of this time-transporting locations. Continue reading →
A few nights ago, I volunteered to help on the Launch party for Manchester’s Science Festival. It was an interesting experience that included meeting new people, giving away goodie bags, and being inside an art installation named “Chronarium”.

There’s always inspiration where you least expect it.
I practically abandoned the blog. I started it with a purpose, and after I felt that it had fulfilled it, I abandoned it. Even if at times I got ideas to write down, or share photos and experiences I completely neglected it.
I neglected it, because I was preparing for an big move in my life. From my point of view it is an enormous move, and an exciting one.
I am starting a masters program in History of Science and Medical Humanities. The masters, right not sound like a great change but it is when I have chosen to do it in the UK. A country I have never visited, and even if I speak the language. This is a cultural shock.
It is quite the adventure for me, and I really believe that is my next big step into this “From med to the MET” transformation.
In benefit of this new adventure, I have proposed myself to write at least once a week on the blog. Share my adventures, the pictures I take, the people I meet, the problems I might encounter.
Log in to the blog, and use it as the online journal it was supposed to be originally.
