Downton Abbey


Hi, there!,

Downton Abbey is a British TV drama, truly famous in UK and USA, and now in Spain too. It is mainly written by Julian Fellowes. The TV serie is set in a realistic Edwardian country house, two years before the beginning of the Great War. The drama begins with the shipwreck of the Titanic.

From the very beginning, you as spectator can feel involved and engaged, since there are several exciting topics such as the inheritan
ce problem, rebellious servants vs. loyal servants; society should be free to mix and chat everyone, no matter your class; convinient loveless marriage?; a female servant who wants to be a secretary, she wants to change her status; and so on. I strongly recommend you to watch DOWNTON ABBEY, an undoubtful masterpiece.

Saint Patrick's Day


Hi, Guys!,


Two days ago, Irish people from all over the world celebrated Saint P
atrick's Day, a very special day because originally, Irish people commemorated the arrival of Christianity, and then, this feast became a national day to celebrate Irish culture in general.

Therefore, to celebrate this traditional holiday, I'd like to stand out the IRISH DANCE and MUSIC. Now, I'm pleased to share with you this flashmob recorded in the Central Station in Sydney (Australia) last 17th March. It was awesome how over 100 dancers, some were members of Riverdance!, could surprise all the passengers. All together celebrated Saint Patrick's Day, so many kilometres far away from Ireland.

Hi, there!,

Have you ever heard about ANNIE LEIBOVITZ? But I'm certain you have already seen her amazing photos, they are so artistic, original, witty, brilliant, professional, ... and all the celebrities want Leibovitz to take them photos. Leibovitz claims she is more interested in what celebrities do than who they are. Maybe due to that, she can get these extraordinary pictures.

In 1970s, she began working for Vanity Fair, then for Vogue. Besides, she has created influential advertising campaigns for American Express, Gap, Givenchy, The Sopranos, Disney and the Milk Board.


Now, it's time to admire Leibovitz's work of art.
