Miffo and Dan with the foundee Miffa made for us today

Many of you surely don’t know that Miffa’s family is one of the richest of Hong Kong. Unfortunately she ended in an Orphanage, and she was there for some time until we decided to become their parents.

Before you make up your mind about that, think that Miffa’s grandpa put some real money in a Swiss account – about one million USD, right Miffa??-

And today she told me that she must go there – to Zurich- to invite some friends for dinner and to retrieve some funds.

Damn, Miffa I told you not to invest in those funds, now you are going to cash some of your family heritage.

We were in Christchurch and Miffo wanted to take a picture of a sheep. After all in NZ there are more than 40 millions (far from the 80 millions there were a years ago). Incredible but that is the same that saying every New Zealander has 10.

Miffo was talking with Nickie – a nice little sheep that has the wish to travel the world – and she convinced her to come to Barcelona.

Here you can see her with Ninjin that is a bunny world authority in carrot breeding and plants.

Mr. Maldonado has left us

Filed under: Editorial, We don't give a shit

By: Father Bunny – The anger old bastard

Tako Tako – our weather specialist – will miss him

Mr. Maldonado, has been our best known weather man since 1986, he got his degree in Physics sciences and got a position in the Spanish agency in charge weather forecasting (I have no idea about their official name in English)

We didn’t know more details… but today it was the last in the audience. Public Tv’s are not doing well lately and they have decided to end the career of Mr. Maldonado at 64 years (you can retire in Spain at 65 with your full pay that nowadays is just enough to pay for the rent of a tiny apartment in Barcelona or Madrid)

The guy did not want to get retired, so he’s forced to. A young lady will be his successor. Most of the weather men we watched everyday in Spanish TV are ranging from freaks to show girls.

I don’t care about weather, but my grandparents and my father did. But Miffa and me decided that we definitely must show tribute to this men. His latest show almost ended up with me and Miffa crying.

Life is hard and surely it’s going to become harder but we’re very soft.

El Sr. Maldonado, quizás nuestro mejor hombre del tiempo desde 1986 nos ha dejado – ah, no os he dicho que mi forma de traducir es muy “coneja”- Licenciado en Físicas trabajo para el Instituto de Meteorología, tras aprobar las oposiciones. Desde 1986 fue el encargado de las noticias del tiempo en TVE.

No conocemos más detalles pero hoy ha sido el último día “on the air” Las televisiones públicas no están en su mejor momento y han decidido – TVE ha decidido- que el Sr. Maldonado con 64 años debía jubilarse (la edad de jubilación es 65) Eso sí la renta que te queda da para pagarte un agujero en una de las grandes ciudades de este gran país que es España (ironía)

El señor Maldonado no estaba por la labor de jubilarse, pero le obligan. Una nena (podría ser un nene, con lo cual no nos deis la vara con el tema del machismo) será su sucesor. La pena es que los hombres del tiempo que vemos van de freakis de libro a putones de verbena. (con todo el respeto a su formación – realizadores de telahinco y cagadatres, pensad más en la credibilidad que en el frenesí)

Me importa una mierda el tiempo, y siempre ha sido así, como a mi hija, pasamos de los telediarios y de las previsiones – salvo cuando navegamos- pero queríamos rendir nuestro tributo a este tipo – que en su despedida, nos ha dado ganas de llorar-

La vida es una mierda y seguramente se va a poner peor.

How to travel wisely and for less money: a complete bunny guide

May be it wasn’t a wise decision, with a very expensive 30 days only, two entries limited to three days visa and a lot of security checks and lame questions in the airport – they asked Father Bunny what was his name –

Close to Shanghai it’s Suzhou – just 30 minutes in a fast train that makes the AVE (Spanish high speed train) look quite ridiculous (we have been waiting for more than 15 years for it). They call it the Chinese Venice and the Chinese Kyoto. Well I think that many writers must re consider seriously their jobs.

After a “great” journey in Suzhou Father Bunny took us to a big mall where – like many times- we were forced to buy more luggage because we have not enough space for all our stuff.

He was really pissed off and not in the mood to bargain and to cope with all the people who were following us offering all kind of goods – from DVD to computers and luxury watches- . We wanted just a decent nylon bag, but we ended with this super hot Gucci bag that you can see in the pictures.

Christchurch to Melbourne: 4 hours flight + check in + formalities
Melbourne to Pudong Shanghai: 12 hours flight + formalities + waiting
One day and a half in Shanghai + hotel room + taxis + food + some boughts
Pudong Shanghai to Amsterdam + formalities+ check in + arguments + bad mood
Amsterdam to Barcelona + formalities + changing terminal + more formalities + delays
Barcelona to home + waiting for luggage + taxi + food in the supermarket 10 minute before they closed it.

Ahhh!!! Traveling is beautiful.
