escalar cuba.

cuba has a serious climbing scene. more so in viñales, pinar del rio province, but there is a strong contingent in the city of havana. while the space to climb in the capital are limited, like everything else we make do with what there is and enjoy what we have. viñales photos eventually. but this is another reason i'm not posting.

peace & love

backstage (mejor dicho: side-stage) at the festival peace & love

the festival peace & love, a collaboration of sorts between cuba and sweden took place in late march of this year (2011). bands and musical acts from both nations alternated the presence on stage in genres ranging from hip hop to metal, house to funk, and of course rock. the two day festival took place in los jardines del tropical, a place that my buddy deemed "magical", with tree house like structures, a castle, and trees enveloped by vines and smaller trees adorning the landscape, adding to the surreal ambiance of seeing nationall famous cuban groups, and a few swedish groups i had heard before (looptroop - a hip hop group, and timbuktu and damn! - a group with a funk eclectic sound).

times flies when you fly places

my camera makes the national paper in cuba

i was sent to south africa to represent my school at a student conference, it was an interesting endeavor to say the least. they also put me on TV. oh i'm alive, so is the blog, and hopefully in the coming year i'll be on top of updates (internet stocks became low priority while education stocks soared).

tv interviews!
