We drove at ease through Aragon. A beautiful area where a proud people have lived for centuries, just listen to this song … It is a pity that the old culture of living in small villages nowadays suffers from migration to the big city. I expect that the coming energy- and economy transition will causeContinue reading “Aragon”

We visited Tuixent . A beautiful small village in the Pyrenees.

The church was used during the making of a film. That is why the paintings are still so clear … whether they are still original, I do not know.
