Here is how to drive a car through books

2017-07-30

Driving through a village is something that most drivers have done. Some drivers have driven over mountains, or perhaps even under a mountain through a tunnel, but how do you drive through books is something else.

Looks like that someone has solved this burning problem and given human kind new hope. Travel gear and tips blog Travel User Guide has posted a video on Vimeo where they drive through a village. Yes, a village.

If you look at the video, in the beginning there is a roadsign that says Libros. It is Spanish, and means books. So, it was as simple as that. Mission accomplished.

Here is the video:

I must say that it is an awfully quiet village. Maybe the villagers are all reading books behind those windows that are closed, preventing the sun from heating up the houses?

Festival of Books in Madrid, Spain in Lovely Summer Surroundings

2015-06-01

In 2015, la Feria del Libros de Madrid (the festival of books) is organized in the capital of Spain for the 74th time. This time, the festival has attracted 471 bookstores from Madrid and from other Spanish cities to celebrate books. Participating stores will sell books in their stalls in the city center during the first two weeks of June.

Also authors get to meet readers and sign books. If you happen to be in the neighborhood, look for Parque del Retiro in Madrid, and you will find the festival.

El Pais reported that despite the high unemployment and relatively weak economy that has been troubling Spain for a few years, the atmosphere was optimistic.

Here are a few select photos taken at the book fiesta in Madrid.
