Thanks thats great! Any listings for meetings in Granada?

Also, an update: makabra was closed down by police two weeks ago. There have been protests ever since, but have just reopened at a new site nearby in defiance of police barricades! VIVA LA MAKABRA! (near metro station Poble Nou) ... more updates soon!

hola todos! smile

Entre junio y julio, vamos a ir a el norte de Espaa, ante el fiesta de "Nowhere" (www.nowheredays.com), con mi amiga. Deseamos conocer otros hilanderos (como se dice "Spinners en espaol?)

OK, I'll stop offending everyone with my awful spanish skills smile I promise it will get better by the time I get to spain with my friend in June. We'll be travelling around north and central spain for around 2-3 weeks before the nowhere festival (www.goingnowhere.org in english) and would love to meet with all you lovely people in spain! What cities do you guys hang out in, and meet up? I've just made a wonderful collapsible staff for travelling with, and want to take it out to meet people!

Hasta luego

Aran smile

Hy akgraphics!!
Ill be back in the Basque country for the end of June, would be lovely to meet up!1 Send me a PM if you come around San Sebastian.

About the paraffin,..you can get it at the ferreterias, or you can buy what is called "agua de fuego" in juggling stores.

Im going to try to update this post with the conventions from this year 2morrow. If I dont get to know how to do it, I will open a new one with them.

There are loads of festival and conventions, so I will start with the conventions.

For anyone interested, next weekend, is trhe LEON Convention, 27, 28, 29 of april, and Ill be there!! So if anyone is around I will love to catch up with some spinners!! And for those ones that have more time, the same weekend, in Gijon there is another convention, but that one is longer, monday and tuesday included ( as there is a bank holiday!!)

Keep spinning!!

Peace and Love

We need more international people coming over and openning our horizons!!



Limits to contest: Im sure some people will love to have you over there,..

Go to kariokas.tk, and have a look on their map, Im sure theyve got some info.

Limits to Contest;
no, no nos conocemos; pero estuve en Tailandia con Drew y me hablo de ti. Aunque la verdad, me encantaria,..

About Ronan,..he is the one that push me to get the info, and the one that put the maps,..so I didnt think it was fair to delete the effort he did,..mostly cos I didnt even knew how to update and he is the one that gave me the info again!,..So thankx!
