Tallest man on earth - These Days (Nico Cover) - A Take Away Show from La Blogotheque on Vimeo.
I first saw Kristian Matsson, "Tallest Man on Earth," open for Bon Iver last year in Madison. He was sweetly a quite short man, but certainly sang like he was the tallest. I don't know where he got his drawl from, as he Swedish, but he rocks it out Americana style in this one.
Sintra is located 30 minutes outside of Lisbon. My friend and I took a day trip there without any huge expectations, and were pleasantly surprised to find one of the most charming places i've ever seen. It was basically a fairytale land...i half expected to see seven dwarfs or a sparkly unicorn.

For Semana Santa I went on a trip with my amiguita Raluca - we started out in Lisbon. The 7 hour night bus, turning up at 5 in the morning in a sketchy looking part of town proved worth it. The city was gorgeous and hearing Portuguese was fun and bizarre - understanding a language I've never learned.
