Not much happening this week, so the blog is shorter than usual.

I went out for dinner one evening with a visiting economist from the OECD; the food at the restaurant César Anca was spectacular, both for the eyes and for the palate:

At the weekend, I was out in the mountains on my bicycle as usual. An old, overpainted van in the middle of a field caught my eye:

A couple of images from the beach, but at the end of the day rather than at sunrise. The sun sets behind the mountains but sometimes it results in pretty colours in the sky opposite, as it did on this particular evening:
