ROLAND GARROS

June 6, 2010

Today, I want to dedicate a post to Rafa Nadal,the spanish tennis player known throughout the world.

Why?

Because this evening, after winning the final in Paris to Robin Soderling, has been proclaimed WORLD TENNIS NUMER ONE, overtaking Roger Federer.

CONGRATULATIONS, Rafa 🙂


Rock In Rio Madrid ’10

June 6, 2010

During this weekend, is being performed in Arganda del Rey (Madrid) one of the biggest musical shows in the world: ROCK IN RIO

The show is called ”Rock in Rio” because it started in the Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) in 1985. It has been so successful that it has expanded in several cities in the world.

This year, performances very good artist like Bon Jovi, Rage Agains The Machine, Shakira, Rihanna and two of my favourites singers: Pereza and Macaco

And other singers that, in my opinion are not so good. I am talking about Calle 13 who sings Reggeton and Miley Cyrus, knows as Hannah Montana.

Anyway, I hope visit in the future other editions of the festival.
