Nov 2nd - Nov 8th

  • This week has been really good, especially since we were on a staycation. We didn’t do much, but we slept a lot, read a lot and watched many movies.
  • I’m still playing the ukulele, and have been learning to play Camila Cabello’s Havana, but the strumming is really hard to get right, at least for a newbie like me!
  • Among the movies we have watched, it’s worth highlighting The Endless Trench by Jon Garaño, Aitor Arregi and Jose Mari Goenaga, a film about a man who hides in his own house for 30 years after the end of the Spanish Civil War, and Amadeus by Miloš Forman, a brilliant study on envy loosely based on the friendship between Mozart and Salieri.
  • In terms of reading, I have finished Persuasion by Jane Austen and also written a blog post about why everyone should read (at least) one novel by her.
