Chivatoscopio: getaway to Bilbao, bike-picnics and vermouths in jelly
This weekend we enjoy a solid vermouth in front of the Menorca sea, we dance to the sound of Scottish bagpipes, we taste the best wines of La Rioja and we ride through Madrid with our bike-picnic. What is your plan?
IN THE BED: Tombuctuú, Andalusíes in the lost city of the Sahara. This book is about the mysterious African city of Timbuktu and the traces left by Al Ándalus and hispanomusulmanes left in her, in her history and in her personality.
BETWEEN FRAMES: 'Gulliver's Travels' in 100 watercolorsin Logroño. The painter Guillermo Pérez Villalta shows us his personal interpretation of Jonathan Swift's book through an exhibition formed by more than 100 watercolors. In the room Amós Salvador. When? Until the 29th of September.
ON THE TABLE: Willyfood Restaurant, in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. Inspired by Julio Verne's novel "Around the World in 80 Days", this restaurant that has just opened its doors surprises us with a menu formed by the flavors of the world. The idea is that each month, the restaurant dedicates its letter to the best cuisine of a destination country. This month: Italy.
