  1. I ask forgiveness for all and all. It seems as if lately colase comments only in my 'chorriadas-items’ and would obviate the rest, as if I did not produce the slightest interest. Nothing is further from the creek Pedroche. Everything remains as interesting as ever and all and all I deserve the same admiration that the first time I had knowledge.

    Given the wealth of historic travelers who have passed through these pages, and presumably will happen eventually, Tabernero request of a new category that could be called 'Traveling’ order in which somehow all these painters, recorders, artists in general, Little by little we are rediscovering. I find it amazing how the documentation is turning progressively online from the most remote countries imaginable can hold information about our city so far passed unnoticed. Some days ago, to complete an entry, I pulled out "The geographical image of Cordoba travel writing’ de D. Antonio Lopez Ontiveros, Geography teacher who writes and probably many of you reading this comment. How have varied sources in just fifteen or twenty years! What book could have been edited today on the subject with all this information without apparent limit now anyone can get!

    Good, less roll. The above. Publican, What do you think? Certainly, the MIC must be given a boost, which is somewhat depressed lately.

    • everyone always develops the theme in q best moves, Dortor, and you unwrap you in artistic matters as fish in water. So q, please, no failures in this regard, because of “chorriadas-items” or speak. Over a @ and two you are giving work done for a thesis. Yea outlines and complete by your side and in private and, if you can, q publishes everything we offer, q because my opinion is not expert, q I think your work is worth a lot.

  2. I fear that the Innkeeper goes by Northlands, not if there will be another Webmaster around here.

  3. True, I'm in northern lands and quite busy. I hope in the coming days to stay a little quieter and devote some time to tell my experiences through this heroic land, but now puedorrrr. And that I have the computer in the hotel room, which at least allows me to read to you at night.
    Mabuse, what you say is on my mind, but until septeimbre will not see the light. I'm plotting some changes to the page that highlights some noteworthy contributions of a separate chapter, but I ask time.
    I very much apart under the heading of Traveling, did not plan to create within the MIC gallery impossible but perhaps the rating approach is more appropriate.
    Your work is excellent and has exceeded my, I had saved some to drop slowly, such as David Hocney, but you're like a steamroller, a si, I will give you over and see if I can contribute something to your brilliant study to improve it if that is possible. Regarding the MIC, true standing, but you should not worry, I'm sure it moves in waves, and that at least do not think, will sprout strongly. I on the other hand it must be so, to flow at pleasure, not liability, we enjoy what we do and not drag a pending task. Personally I can not ask for more from this tavern which gives, is much good.
    Kisses to all from Zara, has (Cesar Romano-Au-gusta)
