Waldoniel special 2014

Here are 4 pictures of 4 places I have visited these last few days. That way you will understand better the low posting rate. Note: it is 80% business trip and I am exhausted, but I still manage a day out on occasion. Bonus points if you guess more than the mere place or country.

City one: (hint: NOT Venezuela)

 Country 2: guess the fruit for free bonus. And no, it is not litchi or Asia.

City 2:

City 3: and a marvelous concert to boot, nobody coughing, no cel phones.

Further hints if you follow me on Twitter.


  1. City 1: Madrid?
    City 2: Paris. That's the fountain on the SW corner of the Centre Pompidou.

  2. Palacio del Jamon Madrid
    Arbutus strawberry, most likely in France.

  3. City 3: Vienna, Austria. The Musikverein

  4. Boludo Tejano7:29 PM

    Paris, Texas.
    Or was that China, Texas?

    #2, châtaignes. Où? Mais en Corse bien sûr.

  6. Readers are well travelled!

    The winners are Carolina and Feco. With bonus points for Carolina specificity. I listened to Bruckner 5th. You cannot be much more viennese than that...

  7. Interesting architecture for a church, the flat ceiling. Cool post all around.

  8. Yield on 2-yr Venezuela note rises to 31% (was 10% in August ) as bond investors flee the economic collapse

    Good thing you said the first one was not Venezuela or one might have thought it was a museum display case in Caracas featuring pre Chavez.

  10. 1) Madrid, Spain
    2) Loco cactus fruit
    3) Argentina
    4) Brazil

  11. 1) Madrid;
    2) Corbezzolo (Arbutus unedo), could well be Italy or France;
    3) France (Paris, Centre Pompidou;
    4) Hmmm, looks like a concert hall I've been soooooo long ago... I can't remember whether it's in Austria, or in Italy (Brunico).


Comments policy:

1) Comments are moderated after the fourth day of publication. It may take up to a day or two for your note to appear then.

2) Your post will appear if you follow the basic rules. I will be ruthless in erasing, as well as those who replied to any off rule comment.

Do not be repetitive.
Do not bring grudges and fights from other blogs here (this is the strictest rule).
This is an anti Chavez/chavismo blog, Readers have made up their minds long ago. Trying to prove us wrong is considered a troll. Still, you are welcome as a chavista to post if you want to explain us coherently as to why chavismo does this or that. We are still waiting for that to happen.
Insults and put downs are frowned upon and I will be sole judge on whether to publish them.
