Susana Baca Concert - Breslavia, 19 Setiembre 2011

Por supuesto, no fue muy difícil pasar por alto el anuncio en un afiche en la calle. De verdad que verlo fue algo aleatorio, aunque se encontrara cruzando la calle del edificio donde tomé clases de polaco. Entender lo que dice tampoco es muy difícil porque se puede notar claramente la fecha del concierto, por lo menos. Esta vez el tema de las entradas no estaba tan claro porque había que escribir a un correo y luego recogerlas en la puerta. Of course, it was not so hard to spot this poster on the street, specially since it was just across the street from the building i was taking my polish-language classes. If you think about it, is not so hard to find out the date of the concert, but the prices were not so easy since we had to write an email to get some reservations. Anyway... of course i did! And just so u know... Susana is not only awarded with a Grammy, but works as the Minister of Culture in Peru. As u see, i wanted to listen to both the Grammy winner and the Minister.




Susana Baca – bosonoga królowa world music z Peru, laureatka nagrody Grammy po raz pierwszy w Polsce! (19.09.11) [Link]

Susana Baca jest jedną z postaci, które odegrały kluczową rolę w odrodzeniu popularności muzyki afroperuwiańskiej zarówno w Peru jak i na całym świecie. Jej głos nie bez powodu porównywany jest często z głosem Cesarii Evory i Celii Cruz.


Mis clases de polaco han sido muy básicas, vale decir que no puedo traducir cualquier texto que encuentre por ahí... aunque creo que cualquiera puede entender palabras sueltas del texto anterior. Encontrar información en inglés fue difícil, pero gracias a mis clases, a Google Translator... y a un poco de esquiva suerte pude enviar un mail en polaco solicitando entradas. Ahora... sería interesante saber qué tipo de música toca+canta Susana Baca, no? :P hehe... pero bueno, si va al Festival de Ethno Jazz algo por el estilo debe de ser! Y así, sin saber mucho, me mandé al concierto acompañado por mi amiga Julia. Al llegar pude conversar con el Ingeniero de Sonido para asegurarme unas fotos al final. Gracias Fico! y por supuesto... Gracias Susana!!! el concierto fue un recital de poesía a ritmo de afrojazz. Qué noche!! ♥ My polish lessons were very basic, no real chance to understand a random text like that one, but we can spot some words easy to recognize. Now, it would b nice to know what kind of music she sings, right? :P But since she is comming for this Ethno Jazz Festival, there i got some clues, i thought. So, i went with my friend Julia and when we arrived i got to talk with the Sound Engineer trying to assure a couple fo pictures at the end. Thanks Fico!! and of course Thanks Susana!! The concert was a poetry recital under the afrojazz rhythm... what a night!!! ♥



I think here she was offering me the vice-ministery
Creo que aqui me estaba ofrenciendo el vice-ministerio

WJS2011 - Setting up (part 3)

Setting up (part 3)




Once more the scouting world gathers again for a massive event, this time in Kristianstad - Sweden. I am lucky i can participate here, and here i'm sharing some stuff around it. You can check the previous post here. Una vez más el Escultismo mundial se junta en un Jamboree, esta vez cerca de la ciudad sueca de Kristianstad. Tengo la suerte de poder participar, y aqui publicaré algunas cosas que vayan pasando. Puedes ver el artículo anterior haciendo click aquí.

We left the action in the train, in my way to Kristianstad... right before arriving to the Jamboree. I decided to travel alone since it's easier to coordinate and find accomodation too. Now, after sailing from Kobenhavn to Helsinborg and visited Lund, Ystad an Malmö... i was finally arriving to the Jamboree. I wanted to go since 2007!!! i was very nervous, i must confess. Well... we have to start stepping out of the train... lets go!


at Kristianstad Train Station

(Preliminary) Check in, of course


I was worried about getting streight to the Train Station in Kristianstad because on the form that we have to fill up i wrote that i wanted to be picked up from the Kobenhavn Airport, but since i got my Skåne Summer Card to travel all around the sothern region of Sweden (Skåne) with a flat rate... i decided to arrive to Kristianstad by myself. And after they picked us up in the train station, the next step was to Check In (but the real and almost final one), and for so... we needed to make a small queue :P


Small queue to check in.
Is it possible to notice the computers + staff we needed to reach for so?

Hum... so "Module Activities". Still, no clue about my job as IST.
IST Patrol, my ID number... first activities, ok.
(and as usual, i'll write that on my agenda to remember)


Next step: placing my tent. This is not that hard... since i'm very used to camp, the only problem is to find the square i am being sent to, but after spotting the guys in my contingent it was not that hard :P ...the hard part was to dialogue and set the camp layout for the peruvian contingent and the others contingents on the square. by the way... did the guys from Arabia Saudi got to enter the camp? they never arrived to the camp-grid, i think.

WSJ 2011 - Sunset at Spring Town


So, i got pretty much what i need to start my Jamboree 2011 experience. I was very excited since it was the 1st time i got into an international Jamboree as an IST... i'm so full of energies!!! can't wait!!

Go check the World Organization of the Scout Movement and check for some evens, if you want...
But if you are a scout, i really really tell you: go to an international activity and enjoy it as much as you can, and you'll have the time of your life. Puedes ver la página de la Organización Mundial del Movimiento Scout y revisar algunos eventos, si quieres... pero si eres scout, te digo... y te lo digo muy bien: ve a una actividad internacional y diusfruta todo lo que puedas, pues es algo espectacular.
