A November night in Dublin. Good beer as usual. Good pubs also.

Up in the air (again)

I start sharing the football player feeling. I am in a lot of places and I know no one... Rather sad isn't it?

The Eye of Sauron

Madrid as seen when you return from a trip abroad. Even looks good doesn't it? Don't get fooled, it is just a demo ;-)

Barcelona as seen from Hilton hotel

It looks like a futuristic place, and may be it is.
Two interesting days spent working in Barcelona, a pitty I could not enjoy it more.
At least I could see the "Sagrada familia" from the taxi on my way to the airport...

New toy in town ;-)

After all that buzz over LPG I thought I should introduce our new toy;
We just bought it second hand a week ago in pristine condition (hopefully ...) and with low mileage (56k km)

And no, there is not enough room in the trunk for the LPG tank plus the luggage :-(

More about petrol consumptions

As the last post talks about fuel consumption I will spoil a little the news of the summer and I will talk about the new Miata consumption.

As you can see those two are my yesterdays two visits to the gas station.
In total it shows a consumption of 44.17L at 64.51€.... it is not cheap at all, but it could have been worst since I did 590.5km

It shows a 7.48L / 100km (running at legal speeds and mostly using 120km/h highways) or 10,92€ / 100km, quite far away from my 7€/100km my LPG car makes.

If I make the maths using those figures:
GPL install = 1800€+IVA (VAT) = 2178€
Assuming it uses the same amount of LPG as my Octavia then we can see that we can save 4€ each 100km and 2178/4=544.5 meaning that I would have to make 54500km to break even.

Something that needs a lot of thinking though since looks like I would use almost half of the trunk for the LPG tank. :-( Unfortunately there is no other location to place it.

LPG fuel running cost (o GPl o GLP ;-) as of today

This is exactly how much it costs me to make 568km when I use my LPG (GPL)  car.

It varies from 6.7€ to 7€ each 100km depending on the cost of the gas. It has gone a bit high lately, but with petrol at 1.55€....

I guess it is cheaper than using most diesel cars and with the comfort and refinement of petrol :-)

In my old diesel car it would has cost me around 49€ so I think I did the right thing when I transformed my petrol car to LPG :-D... with regular petrol it would have gone circa 68€...

El Escorial en primavera

Hace pocos días estuvimos en El Escorial pasando el dia.
Ni me va ni me viene. Es un sitio curioso que no me dice nada.
Si te gusta entonces visitalo.

Eso si, hay varias rutas desde Madrid para llegar al mismo, pero yendo en moto recomiendo la más lenta, es deliciosa y en los días de calor horroroso de Madrid el pasar entre los árboles es refrescante y relajante.

Dublin in the anniversary of Titanic

This year has been the 100th anniversary of the Titanic, and I was in Dublin during those celebrations.
Not a very nice thing to celebrate but it was good to see that Dublin was exactly as I could remember it.
We were in the usual places and nothing looked too different. The most astonishing thing was to see so much young people wandering around day and night.
They have the future (if any at all).

Tengo un OVNI en el retrovisor

Bueno... igual si,pero lo que se ve en la foto sólo es el flash de la cámara del móvil ;-)

Es un poco como la luz que se ve al fondo del túnel en la economía española... salvo que en ese caso es un tren a todo gas que viene y nos va a arrasar.
:-( ¿Negativo? no, ¿Realista?, y eso que soy del Athletic. :-P

Still Winter

Last days have been really warm, with one day reaching almost 20C, but stop dreaming.... it is still winter....

No more snow and no more rain (well it has not rained since... I cannot remember now) but still no warm weather.

It is not only a weather condition but also a soul condition. :-(
