Condor comes to visit the guy who saved him (video)


"Edgardo is a Rancher in Loncopué, Argentina. He found the baby Condor, who he calls Condorito (a famous chilean comic book character) on his back yard a few miles away from where Condors live.
Since a few months ago he has been nourishing him.
He had the support of Local wildlife authorities that where monitoring this activity.
A day back in march he came alone, with one of his legs injured and they have been taking care of him since then.
He called the wildlife authorities and they told him that he was born around October of last year and he most likely had lost his parents.
He knew that the bird had to learn to feed for himself so a when a few animals died on his property he left them there so the Condor could eat in the "wild" A few weeks ago he decided to share his adventure with a couple of friends and family with a video he sent on whatsapp.
Edgardo said that the story that the Condor came flying to visit him is simply not true because the Condor was still a baby (nestling) and at the time of the video the Condor could not fly yet. He knows that people exaggerate specially after a story goes viral.
As of this week the Condor has already began to fly, and he has began to come less and less to visit and that is what they were expecting and hoping for so he could join his natural habitat.

Apparently some other national authorities are trying to take him to a proper place, but he says that the Condor is free where he is, and in his natural habitat close to where other Condors roam."

A weekend away

Not long after getting back from the snow we headed to Norfolk to stay with friends again, and got to hang out on the beach and enjoy spring in full swing. Very strange! I know I say this every time we venture outside of London, but man we need to do it more. Life's too short.

Vemdalen rocks


Sadly I couldn't bring my big camera on the mountain, so when I remembered to I'd whip out my phone to grab some snaps - I didn't get that many, as I was having too much fun. As Easter was late this year there wasn't loads of snow left, but luckily there was enough on the slopes. The first picture is from Jaktstugan, a cabin at the top of a cross country ski run that only sold waffles with cloudberry jam and whipped cream. Just outside the kids could borrow toboggans which was really good fun; I tell you, everything was so relaxed and chilled in Vemdalen. There was free hot chocolate at the foot of some runs, communal barbecue pits where you could cook your own lunch, swings for kids that had had enough of skiing, and in one resort (Björnrike) there was a even little music studio with a drum set and a piano that anyone could have a go on. Genius! The fifth picture is of a cabin from the 1700's that stands on my friends' plot, but I was so dumbstruck by it that I didn't take any pictures from the inside. And lastly, Oomoo and A on day 1, before Oomoo got the hang of skiing on his own. We better hurry back before he forgets how to.

Cabin fever

In another life we might have a cabin of our own, but if we get to go here again I'll be well pleased. What is it about cabins that just feels so good? I'm not sure, but it must be some kind of magic; as soon as we stepped into my friend A's cabin we all instantly relaxed. Is it all that wood? The fireplace? Being surrounded by nature? Or just shutting the door on most of the entrapments of modern life? I dunno. One thing for sure is that I finally got the point of a sauna (I've never enjoyed them in the past - way too hot!) - it was the perfect balm for our aching muscles. So here's hoping our next Easter holiday is sorted then :)

Stockholm randoms 2017


Hej! Didn't mean to have such a long break, but life happens. We went to Sweden over Easter and had the best time (we went skiing - yay - which Oomoo picked up in three days - yay!), and then we got back and Oomoo got ill, and I didn't get to sit down at the computer until now. As usual there's no rhyme or reason to my picture taking, so here are three randoms from Stockholm. More to come!

Gallerista

Went to the Photographers Gallery last week to see the Roger Mayne exhibition (which was a bit meh), and ended up going to have a look at the Deutsche Börse Prize nominees  as well and fell in love with Awoiska van der Molens work. Just wonderful! Huge hand printed black and white shots of nature that somehow manage to evoke the sense of being there, hearing the silence. If you're in London, I recommend going to the Photographers Gallery just to have a look at her entry. This shot is from the the Taiyo Onorato/Nico Krebs exhibit, which was a bit disorientating to look at to say the least - haha!

Sunday snippets

Nice bit of monochrome in one of the stairwells at the Science Museum yesterday.

We went to see the Robots exhibition which made us all realise how amazing we humans are, rather than the other way round.

This was a huge sculpture in the main museum that I had no time to do more than take a picture of.

Oomoo caught running after our lunch - tut tut.

Strangers on the stairs.

3D "projection kit" from the gift shop. Kind of worked.

On the way to Nana's for Sunday dinner. I was too hungry to take any more pictures. The End.

Down at the Gallery

A couple of weeks ago I watched a great documentary about the National Gallery on DVD, as I was too tired to go out on an art expedition myself. The film is three hours long, with no narrative, no talking heads and no voice over. It felt just as rewarding to watch it as it would have been walking around the gallery in person. I've been there plenty of times, but it was really interesting seeing what happens behind the scenes, especially in the restoration department. Last week I went down to the National Gallery to have a look round again, finding the art that had been featured in the film as well as snapping pics of my fellow visitors. Most large museums and art galleries here have free admission, which is lucky, as it's great to be able to re-visit gems like these over and over again. So maybe I should stop moaning about how crap London is now, eh?
