Sant Jordi, quin èxit! / Sant Jordi, totally succeed!





Quin èxit de Sant Jordi! La familia no coneixia la tradició, i s'han endut una gran sorpresa! Els hi he explicat la llegenda del drac, la princesa i Sant Jordi, els hi he donat llibres i roses... Els hi he explicat com són els carrers a Barcelona el dia de Sant Jordi, els espectacles de Montblanc...

Els llibres han sigut:
- Entrenaments de fubol per a nens (al nen li encanta el "soccer")
- Un conte pel més petit de tots
- La història interminable i una rosa per la filla
- Una rosa per la mare
- Un llibre de "spanish tapas" per tota la familia

Els somriures que he rebut valen molt més que els diners que m'ha costat tot plegat! Qui sap, potser d'aquí pocs anys veiem Sant Jordis a Berkeley! Com jo faci aquí el postdoc ja hi podeu comptar... Per alguna cosa és el meu dia preferit!

Sant Jordi's day has been a total succeed! They didn't know anything about it, so it was a big suprise. I told them the legend of the dragon, the princess and Sant Jordi, the medieval performance of Montblanc, how the streets of Barcelona looks like this day... And then I give them the red roses and the books. They were:

- Storybook for kids to the little kid.
- How to train children to soccer for the child (the child loves soccer).
- A red rose and The Never Ending Story to the girl.
- A red rose for the mother.
- A book for all the family "How to cook spanish tapas"

All the smiles I have received are more valuable that the money they cost me! Who knows, maybe after some years people will be celebrating Sant Jordi here at Berkeley! If I end doing my postdoc here, you can count on it... It is for some reason that this is my favourite day!
