Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
From kcurie's diary Poetry and Music, I'm taking this verse that fits my feelings about the people at the meet-up :

Bonita la gente que viene y que va
(nice the people who come and who go)
bonita la gente que no se detiene
(nice the people who do not stop)
bonita la gente que no tiene edad
(nice the people who have no age)
que escucha, que entiende, que tiene y que da
(who listen, who understand, who have and who give)

Thanks for your diary, Barbara, and thanks to everyone who was there. Bonita la gente!

Ah, now I know where Manu Chao got this line from! Thanks, afew!

The mood of the song is better!!!!

I take the same part of the lyrics as afew.

The video is posted in the diary....

It captures my impression of the meeting (seeing froma broad)!!

And Jarabe de Palo is better than Manu Chao.. je jej ejejej :)

A pleasure

I therefore claim to show, not how men think in myths, but how myths operate in men's minds without their being aware of the fact. Levi-Strauss, Claude
