Of all the gin joints, in all the towns, in all the world, ...

When I walked into a shopping mall in Sao Paolo and saw Don Quixote and Sancho, I could have paraphrased Rick in Casablanca but I thought I would leave you with the opening line of the novel - well, with the place changed: "Somewhere in ... Sao Paolo, in a place whose name I do not care to remember...", and, of course, the picture!!

Don Quixote and Sancho in...Brazil


Not for Monty Python´s Ministry of Silly Walks

The Peruvian Paso Horse (in Spanish, caballo peruano de paso) does have a special walk, or gait, but is not at all silly and, thus, would not be elegible for a subsidy from Monty Python´s Ministry.
The Paso Horse is a special breed of horse, descendand from the horses that the Conquistadores brought over from Spain - mainly from Andalusia - in the 16th century. What makes it special is its smooth ride as a result of its particular ambling gait. The video below was taken at Hacienda Los Ficus, just outside Lima., where you can watch a show, which includes the typical Marinera dance of Peru and also lunch.
