The sunken forest, Brazil in Barcelona
1000 square meters of a Brazilian sunken forest… Unexpected, even in a science museum. Complete with the animals I named yesterday, plus ants, anacondas, venomous giant spiders, leaf-cutters…
There’s a world out there…Full of wonders and miracles, big and small.
Reflections in the windows of a hotel in Andorra la Vella, the capital of the Principality of Andorra. The ball and the cables are part of a bridge I’ll show you on monday, the rest is the mountain facing the hotel. Very appropriate name for the hotel, by the way: it’s the Magic Hotel, no less!

Watery Andorran Wednesday
We went to Andorra last weekend, for the first time ever. And what an absolutely lovely little country this is! For those who don’t know, Andorra is a tiny principality (technically called a micro-state) in the Pyrenees Mountains, between Spain and France. Just over 400 square kilometers, 2 heads of state, the Bishop of Urgell in Spain and the french president, de facto princes of Andorra.
Mountains, water and duty free shopping. Will show you much more about it!
Oh yeah: as in Catalunya, the official language of the country is Catalan. Which means that Andorra is the only independent Catalan country in the world.
