clinging on for dear life…

It’s a short train journey from vigliano-candelo to biella but i guess it felt like a long one for this grasshopper which clung on for dear life to the outside of the train window…

Actually it’s not really clinging on that much, in the end my new green friend is so damn casual it even takes the time to nibble on its own insecty feet…When i filmed it, it made me think of the dodgy special effect from some japanese si-fi monster movie from the ’50’s…giant and flying through the countryside…terrorising the locals…!

curtis to la coruña…

Back in Spain…again…back to almost no internet…coin operated PCs in local bars…it’s always a challenge…

…the train from the small village of Curtis (see previous post) to the port of La Coruña, immaculately clean and just like Galicia, full of old people… Galicia (region just above Portugal in the north west corner of Spain) is full of fjords or rias in gallego, the indigenous galician language (i guess in Scots it’s a firth), and on this 1 hour journey you go past the Ria of Betanzos as well as that of La Coruña…

the space in between…

…the space between Biella and Milan, the train journey punctuates my life in italy, the ever changing landscape of rice fields (risaie) is winter barren and white with frost and snow…
