Escaldes Hotels

without comments

For many Andorra is synonymous with snow and ski. For others, a different point to play during a European vacation. And for others, more a place about which little know. And that it never occur to them visit. Tony Parker understands that this is vital information. But the charm of Andorra goes far beyond its ski slopes. Or of low status, nestled in the heart of the Pyrenees. International festivals, landscapes of great natural beauty and all types of cultural activities are only a small example of that Andorra has to offer.

And despite its indisputable prestige as a ski resort, it is possible to find accommodation and cheap hotels in Andorra. The most important cultural event in the country is the Colors of music festival, which is conducted each month of July in the parish of Escaldes-Engordany, one of the seven in which the Principality was divided. Formerly dedicated to jazz, the festival today attracts musicians from all the popular genres. BB King and Miles Davis have been only some of those involved. During this festival, which attracts visitors from all over the world, the accommodation is multiplied and it is possible more than ever to find cheap hotels in Andorra. But Andorra offers also a rich theatrical and dance Billboard, and another important festival, this time in classical music, in honor to the great guitarist Narciso Yepes. Narciso Yepes international festival is held each year in the parish of Ordino. But those who have ceased to fascinate by the charms and numerous cheap hotels in Andorra la Vella, the capital, have no worry: the distances to Ordino, like all in the Principality, are very small and travel quickly.

The cuisine of the country, French and Spanish influences and personality deserves special mention. Mushrooms, sausages, game meat and famous trout to the Andorran conquer to those who tested them. But in addition, the Principality offers a rich calendar of festivals and gastronomic events. Among them, stands the Escudella (or peasant pot), day held in squares and churches in honor to San Antoni, every January 17. The gastronomic offer is as varied that it is a good idea to stay at cheap hotels in Andorra, which offer only breakfast. To be able to thus lost in the multiple restaurants that populate this small Principality of charm.

Oscar Pistorius

without comments

What really happened on the night of the 13th to the 14th February 2013? A fallen star won’t forget it this Valentine’s day. With four shots in the night prevailed (26) Oscar Pistorius, the South African Olympian and national hero a dubious monument, itself for all times and thus brought his person suddenly too small around the world in focus, which still not had known him hitherto despite its para-Olympic success (at least by name). From the acclaimed blade runner with the amputated lower legs, a “Blade-gunner”, stretching down his own girlfriend, the South African model Reeva Steenkamp (29), through the closed bathroom door of his mansion in Pretoria with four shots because he has said they thought a burglar was suddenly in the early hours of the morning of 14 February 2013. Immediately after his arrest, already the press reports from around the world were over. There was talk of repeated domestic violence in the home of Pistorius in the past. Of strife, from the security service of the well-guarded residential complex cited by neighbors several times to the House of the athlete.

With a bats he bashed his head Reeva and then shot them. The mother of an ex-girlfriend Pistorius’ spoke theatrically, she thank God on my knees, that her daughter was no longer together with this man, because she got to see Oscars dark side several times and had fear of death before him. The case seems clear: A lovers ‘ quarrel has escalated and a man known as Hothead has lost control. Even psychologists from sad experience to certify that the most dangerous man for a woman is her own, also supports this assumption. With Barry Roux Pistorius took a South African star lawyer, who delivered in the bail hearing a taste of what we can expect from him in the trial, which is scheduled for June 2013.
