Exer What? / ¿Ejer Qué?

FRIDAY MORNING, I looked across the street and saw a crew building a stage. I had no idea what for. Saturday morning, while I was getting ready to go out for coffee, dance music began blasting from below and both cats came running inside.

One of the local gyms was hosting a workout class on the Paseo. A large crowd was participating. There was great energy. Plus step platforms, dumbbells, exercise mats — and a whole lot of Lycra. I immediately changed my plans and headed downstairs.

I took some pictures.

And THEN I went for coffee.


EL VIERNES POR la mañana, miré hacia al otro lado de la calle y vi a una tripulación construyendo un escenario. No tenía idea de para qué. El sábado por la mañana, mientras me preparaba para salir a tomar un café, la música de baile comenzó a sonar desde abajo y ambos gatos entraron corriendo.

Uno de los gimnasios locales organizaba una clase de ejercicios en el Paseo. Una gran multitud estaba participando. Había mucha energía. Más plataformas de pasos, mancuernas, colchonetas para ejercicios — y un montón de Lycra. Inmediatamente cambié mis planes y me dirigí abajo.

Hice algunas fotos.

Y LUEGO fui a tomar un café.

Second from right: She didn’t have dumbbells, so she grabbed the nearest kid.
Segundo, desde la derecha: No tenía mancuernas, así que agarró a la niña más cercana.

It’s been kind of a tiresome week, what with the stupid drug withdrawal and everything. But all is going as expected and getting better. I even went to the gym today. San Geraldo was my inspiration, which is extremely ironic since he once told me years ago mid-workout that if he died in six months he was going to be so angry with me for wasting his time at the gym. But, he’s a changed man… kind of.

I did manage to go for a couple of walks this past week. You might remember the recent post with bird ‘foot’ prints (click here). Here are some more images mostly for the birds.

“I know I can be strong when you’re with me” (well, you, and my lesbian seagulls).
In Spanish, Lesbian Seagull, would be Gaviota Lesbiana. Very lyrical.
