When in doubt, go to de library

Many people dream about big houses, great cars, awesome dressing rooms… But not me. Ever since I watched Disney’s “Belle and the Beast” my dream has been having a library of my own, a room just for the pleasure of the mind, with a comfy wing chair (upholstered in tweed, of course), maybe an old table and of course endless shelves with so many books I’d need several lives to read them all.

But for now, until my dream can come true (it will), I love to visit libraries, especially old ones just as this one: the Library of Trinity College Dublin.

Stockholms stadsbibliotek

Or… Stockholm’s Public Library. The outside is not very beautiful (despite what my friends said, I didn’t like it at all), but the inside… oh!! the inside!!! It’s kind of how I imagine Paradise (Borges was completely right)

Stockholms stadsbibliotek

Oooh! Those card catalogues!!

Stockholms stadsbibliotek

O lo que es lo mismo: la Biblioteca Pública de Estocolmo. El exterior no es muy bonito (a pesar de lo que digan mis amigas, no me gustó nada), pero el interior… ¡¡ooh, el interior!! Algo así es como imagino el Paraíso (Borges tenía razón)

Oxford

Five years ago {oh! already?!} I had the chance to visit Oxford, and I completely fell in love with it! It reminded somewhat of Salamanca, maybe because are famous university cities and they both have old and interesting buildings.

Oxford

Anyhow, I’d love to come back.

Oxford

Hace cinco años {¿tanto tiempo?} tuve la oportunidad de visitar Oxford, y me enamoré completamente de la ciudad. Me recordó de alguna manera a Salamanca, quizá porque ambas son ciudades universitarias famosas, y ambas tienen también edificios antiguos interesantes.

Sea como fuere, me encantaría volver.
