THE WALL IS NOT DIRTY, IT'S ALIVE! - A microscopic jungle: A very curious kind of life is growing on this wall. Its survival stems from its ability to adapt to rapidly changing environmental conditions. On this wall grow some very small and completely harmless organisms that are valuable to the environment. They form a kind of a mat a few millimeters thick in which different groups of cyanobacteria and microalgae coexist. Microalgae represent the planet's greatest reserve of biodiversity for us to learn about and exploit. The Canary Islands is one of the world's most biodiverse regions, especially in microalgae.

And if you have been to Barcelona, there is a big chance you've stopped by Casa Batlló on Passeig de Gracia in Barcelona to admire the incredible architecture on one of my personal Gaudí-favourites. But most people will also notice the very beutiful building next door to Casa Battló too. This house it called Casa Amatller and was the home of the grandson of the founder, Antoni. The one with the art-passion mentioned above.

The scenario and the fun part of a story is detected in the right hemisphere, and the mirror neurons responds to the perception of others experience. Which means that when we watch someone laugh it can induce laughter in ourselves, even though we don't why they are laughing. Funny, but very true. I often smile at people who are smiling or laughing, it's contageous! (
The posters are in Spanish and English, and can all be seen online here if you are interested. If you are around and want the real thing, go by the museum, just between the port / shopping centre El Muelle,

- It's disgusting, they are big!
- I've heard you should not kill a cockroach by stepping on it, as it might bear eggs, that you will then drag around the house, and well you can all imagine what a party that could turn out to be.
and taking care with food), what to do if they are already inside, how to get rid of the image of them
that keeps popping into my head, especially before sleeping (which creates lovely dreams...)
Anything! If you live somewhere with cockroaches yourself and are used to them and see
them as I see a fly, please tell me the secret!

In the meantime, we made our chocolate tablets. There was a selection of spices and things we could add to give flavour. Chopped almonds, coconut, peanuts etc. After having chosen our preferred flavours, we paired up and headed over to the machine of deliciousness to get our chocolate. Oh My Goodness! Can I have one of these please?
There was one for dark chocolate and one for white. (I wouldn't mind having one of each.)
I decorated mine with white chocolate haha!
Now we just had to make sure it was all cooled off before we could pack it, cause we got to bring all this home with us. One big tablet of chocolate, 6 ganache-filled bombons, lollipops and rocas de chocolate. Loads of chocolate!! The whole workshop was about 3 hours and included a drink at the end and well, all the chocolate to bring home. It was a GREAT way to spend a Saturday afternoon!
