Past February 27th Tokyo marathon was held in out favorite city. I ran several kilometers with my father in a rainy, snowy and cold day where my father missed to accomplish his dream completely.


Since that time he has been not running, except for the last month. He got injured two week prior to Tokyo that time and the decision of running 42 something wasn’t the cleverest for him.
Anyways he started to train again, a month or so ago with more injures, what can you expect from an old man?
But, we manage to run with him, Draculina and me for the last FIFTEEN kilometers of a very nice run. May be he is not happy enough but we are delighted with so many kilometers with such a low effort (we were on his back).

It’s raining, it’s cold, what is the best thing to do? Go to the park, specially if the park is closed.
Anyways Mini Me wanted to cover her first mission and I decided to let her go with Father Bunny while I was planning my next visit to Hong Kong.

A good friend of us made Father Bunny a nice birthday present, but he tried to keep it so safe that he forgot about where he hided it.

Finally I have discovered it and I am going to eat’em all!

PS: Note my wings, now I am working for Lufthansa carrying a 777 from Barcelona to Chicago three times a week. Ok. Someone need to bring some money home.

Una gran amiga del Viejo le hizo un regalo de cumple muy chulo y el imbécil lo guardo tanto que se olvido de donde lo puso (en su maletín) Yo lo he descubierto, y me voy a poner ciega a gominolas.

Por cierto, fijaros en las alas de Lufthansa que me han dado, como piloto de un 777, ahora vuelo a Chicago 3 veces a la semana porque alguien ha de traer dinero a casa.

Finally I got to get inside Sagrada Familia. They have been working on it for more than 100 years and finally they managed to finish the cover.


This November Pope Benedictus visited it and consecrated it. The ceremony was on TV and the interior looked very nice and spectacular. Among the time there have been a lot of different ideas about how to continue with Gaudi´s work. Check the news and wiki to know more about it.


In my opinion it was very cold outside and even more inside with little light (it was rainy and fully covered), you have to pay a ridiculous fee and if you don’t buy the tickets using Servicaisa you have to be on line for two hours at least.


It’s like an enormous and expensive puzzle that will be finished in some 40 year.



We have run the Barcelona’s Marathon.

When more than a year ago Father Bunny started to run again (He was running in 2003 for six months) I was very sceptical about his real possibilities. Furthermore his dream about finishing a Marathon (42 kilometres and 195 metres) seemed less than possible.

Father Bunny complexion is not the best one for long distance running and besides the amount of training to finish a Marathon in good shape is quite important.

During all this time he has been training and racing, sometimes with Draculina who often helped him to maintain the right pace, but his new friends from correCATagafo (experienced runners and tri-athletes) has played a vital role in his achievements.

I wanted to share his success with him and I waited for him in the last kilometre to enter together in 3 hours and 17 seconds. Quite a great mark for an old guy that surprisingly did not encounter The Wall and arrived in quite a decent shape.

Another World Bunny Record set by Miffa Chan


Cuando hace más de un año el Viejo volvío a correr ( lo hizo en 2003 durante seis meses) era muy escéptica sobre sus posibilidades reales. Es más creía que su sueño de correr y terminar una maratón era más que imposible.

Su complexión no es la mejor para la carrera de larga distancia y además el nivel y exigencia del entrenamiento que requiere un maratón con dignidad es muy elevado.

Durante todo este tiempo ha estado entrenando y compitiendo en pruebas menores, algunas veces con Draculina, que siempre le ha ayudado a mantener el ritmo de carrera. Pero una parte muy importante del éxito es de la ayuda que le han prestado sus nuevos amigos de correCATagafo (experimentados corredores y triatletas).

Quería compartir ese momento con él y le estuve esperando en los últimos kilómetros para entrar juntos en 3 horas y 17 minutos. Un tiempo bastante bueno para un viejo que de manera sorprendente no se encontró con el temido MURO y llego bastante fresco.

Otro Record del Mundo Conejo de Miffa. ¡Gracias a todos los correCATagafo



In the Chinese city. Perspectives on the transmutations of an Empire

Sometimes I have received some criticism about the kind of education I am providing to my daughter Miffa.

Too many travels, too many parties, a little bit too much of excesses for a – no so little- bunny girl.

This past Sunday I decided to imitate my good friend Anita and after running 21 kilometres and 975 meters (Barcelona half marathon) we went to the CCCB. The exhibition was about the changes that have occurred through the time in China’s big cities.

Well, It was quite interesting but Miffa was sleeping most of the time arguing about the boring movies that new Chinese directors made to tribute five important cities.
