Atlas
« on: September 23, 2006, 06:11:24 PM »
I have been today in Tarifa. Tarifa is a village located in the Strait of Gibraltar, in front of Africa, on the right you can see the Atlantic, on the left the Mediterranean.
The sky is not very clear, and  the Titan Atlas with his white head is not visible, but you can see that Africa and Europe are too near.

Well, I don´t know what´s the reason the second photo has disappear. Here again


And about the first photo, I want to say that Hitler was speaking with Franco at Hendaya (south France) in 1940. Hitler wanted to cross Spain to close the gateway between the Mediterranean sea and the Atlantic, Franco was "torero" and the "bull" forgot the Spanish target.
"Hitler later said he would rather have three teeth extracted than meet with Franco again"

I have never seen so many kite surfers before.

I think some of us went off to fight Franco in the 30s, we are like salt and pepper here, were in everything.
