A few impressions of Valencia

And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon , to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.

Revelations 21: 23
The market building is 100 years old but 1,000 years ago market stalls will have been set up near the city walls by Muslim traders.

The central dome at the ‘cross roads’ for the market.

Then there was street art…

J . WARX says this about his work:
” The concept of my drawings is to satirize, to generate memes of an image or a current situation.”

“They make me laugh while I am doing them!”

” I do them in the moment. I have a good time….as soon as I don’t I will stop.”

In some ways I agree with J.WARX.

Then there is the six mile park. Thirty years ago there was a flood and so they diverted the river to go round the city. The now have a park made from a dry river bed 100 yards wide.

The city as a center where, any day in any year, there may be a fresh encounter with a new talent, a keen mind or a gifted specialist – this is essential to the life of a country.

Margaret Mead

There is something about arriving in New cities, wandering empty streets with no destination. I will never lose the love for the arriving, but I’m born to leave.

What is a city but the people.
