Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

Spain: Civil Guard spots eight-metres-long shark off coast of Granada

  1. This Monday Granada and Malaga entered phase 1. These were the two provinces most attacked by the coronavirus but we are finally free.

    This does not mean that we can go out like we did before, that we were all day on the street, with our friends, hugging each other or doing any nonsense.

    We have to be responsible, go out with our masks on and try not to touch anything, since we don't exactly know who has been there before and if they have something. Nothing is certain, since here in Salobreña there were only 8 cases, but that does not mean that it can be spread.

    That is why we must be responsible and take care of ourselves, our families and also our friends and their families, because if one takes it, all will take it. Since we are free, let's try to stay free, all together.

  2. A few weeks ago we finally went to phase one, we were one of the last two Andalusian provinces to go to phase 1, because we are the two Andalusian provinces with the most cases of Coronavirs.

    We could already do more things, but not too many, we could leave our town and move within the province, we could go out to see our families and friends with a maximum of 10 people, but one thing that I did not see well is that I could go to the bars at any time and meet friends and family, but we could not go to exercise at any time, we continued with the same time slots.

    but today we are in phase 2 and we can exercise at any time, but always being responsible and careful with others
