You know, occasionally, you take a look at the statistics from the website and sometimes you get the odd surprise. The one shocker was the picture I took during 2006 at the cricket in Old Trafford with the little green people of Ireland, has been picked up and used here, there and yes indeed everywhere, including of all places:
and in case what you were wondering what the page says, as it is in Spanish, here it is via the gift of Google Translate:
In my travels to Ireland always discover something wonderful: the true heart of Ireland is its people. No country can boast of such vitality and much hospitality as the Irish. In small towns, especially, its people have many stories to tell. In any bar can be put to sing traditional songs to encourage tourists and show them and the Irish culture.
I do not remember better times in Ireland when entering a pub. In any place on earth, go to a bar stands for a beer or a glass simply. In Ireland. In Ireland people get to dance, sing, or simply tell stories aloud, as if in a big table together.
And the Irish are very attached to their traditions and customs. They love to show them why everyone who comes. In the nineteenth century, the British had the Irish people a little tied up. They could speak their language, they could practice their own religion. But that did not stop jealously guarded their hearts in the history of Ireland in their songs, in their legends.
That is why I say that the heart of Ireland is its people. The love they feel for their country is so strong that you feel at any little thing they do. This is one more reason why I love Ireland, for whom I feel such admiration for the Irish people and people. The infinite beauty of this country is not only breathtaking in its scenery, cliffs and monuments.
Songs, stories, legends of Ireland … The heart beats to the rhythm of the voice of the Irish. Do not let slip the opportunity to discover the magic inherent in this corner of dreams.
Well, there you have it, it seems sometimes this old website indeed holds the odd treasure which can be used to make other places just that little bit better. Just wonder however if they realise where that was taken, and the fact that they weren’t Irish…oops! 🙂
Anyway, it was nice for the link back, and it was actually a nice read when I could translate. Fair play to the makers of Sobreirlanda.com! I salute you!
