A Mexican in Madrid


This is something I've just discovered this weekend near my house... It is an sculpture of Lázaro Cárdenas, president of Mexico many years ago (see the link if you want to know more) As I read this man helped spanish people in exilio during our Civil War... Sometimes I wonder how fast time goes by... Maybe it was 60 years ago, and Spain was such a really different place (that's what my grandpas told me!)
Anyway, blue sky, historical person, interesting pose... That's the post for today! ;)

Esto es algo que descubrí este fin de semana cerca de mi casa... Una estatua de Lázaro Cárdenas, presidente de México hace ya unos cuantos años. Según he leído, este hombre ayudó a muchos españoles en el exilio durante la Guerra Civil... Es increíble cómo pasa el tiempo de rápido... Tal vez esto fue hace 60 años, y España era un país realmente muy diferente a lo que es ahora.
Bueno, me centro, cielo azul, personaje histórico, pose interesante... Es la foto de hoy! ;)

He looks very thoughtful, doesn't he?

I am amazed by how much I've learnt since I've been blogging.

Great shot with a good link. He is to Mexicans, probably the only politician who really gain the love & respect from his people. ( Y eso es mucho decir, por que despues, ni hablar )

Spain is so rich with history... I think that during Franco things were completely different!

I think it is wonderful to have statues of those who have contributed some special things to this world. And really, when you think of it, anyone and everyone has contributed something special - perhaps we should all have a statue of ourselves.

Estimad@ Dsole:

Que interesante encontrar un "poste" como este en que describes a unos de los mejores presidentes de mi pais (que no el mejor). Me grado lo que he vistoi hasta ahora. Ya te estar frecuentando mas seguido.
