Joana Vasconcelos no Palácio da Ajuda, Agosto de 2013. Apenas dois dias após regressar da viagem, decidi aproveitar o embalo museístico que me deu Amesterdão, e visitar esta exposição que estava quase a terminar. No que toca aos aspectos individuais, achei que algumas peças serviam um propósito meramente decorativo e que lhes faltava alguma substância, que acabou por ser compensada pela beleza requintada de todas as salas do Palácio da Ajuda. Como um todo, gostei da exposição, achei que estava muito bem enquadrada no espaço e que tinha um óptimo ritmo para o visitante, para além de me fazer descobrir um monumento nacional que - vergonhosamente! - nunca tinha visitado.

Joana Vasconcelos at the Ajuda Nacional Palace, August 2013. Only two days after getting back from the trip, I decided to enjoy the cultural momentum that Amsterdam gave me, and visit this exhibit that was almost over. When it comes to the individual aspects, I thought some pieces served a merely decorative purpose and lacked some substance, which ended up being compensated by the exquisite beauty of all the rooms of the Ajuda National Palace. As a whole, I enjoyed the exhibit, thought that it fit really well into the space and had a great rythm for the visitor, besides making me discover a national monument that - shamefully! - I've never visited before.

E pronto. Aqui estão as duas últimas fotografias da viagem que fiz em Agosto, tiradas em Utrecht, depois de me ter perdido a caminho da estação de comboios, e de ter andado muito mais do que era suposto, e de estar cheia de dores nos pés, e de ter vontade de empurrar todos os ciclistas que passavam por mim. Sentei-me num parque, respirei fundo, percebi qual o caminho certo a tomar e tudo se resolveu. 

This is it. Here are the last two photos from my trip back in August, taken in Utrecht, after I got lost on my way back to the train station, and walking much more than I should, and having my feet hurt so bad, and wanting to push all the cyclists passing by me. I sat down at a park, took a deep breath, figured out the righ way to go to the station and everything fell into place.

O ano novo começou ao som de músicas dos anos 80. Três miúdas a dançar ao som de "Girls just wanna have fun" e a rir desmesuradamente. Haverá melhor do que isto? Este ano, e ao contrário de anos anteriores, resolvi tomar nota de algumas resoluções, e, se cumprir metade, já me dou por satisfeita (como sabem, não sou a pessoa mais disciplinada de sempre...). Tenham um óptimo 2014!

This new year started with the sound of music of the 80s. Three girls dancing with "Girls just wanna have fun" and laughing uncontrollably. Does it get better than that? This year, and unlike previous years, I decided to make some resolutions, and, if I fulfill even half of them I'll be quite satisfied (as many of you know, I'm not the most disciplined person out there...). Have a great 2014!
