Workshop and tree planting in Beijing


One of the most important things I should have organized before I arrive to Beijing was to find a school for my project.  I didn’t have many contacts here in Beijing and my only Chinese friends was away in holiday, so I wrote to Eve, my Swiss friend who I was going to stay in her apartment.
I knew Eve since I Was in China last time going back to February 2009. In that time also she was hosting me.
I wrote her and asked her for any possible contacts for schools. In the other hand October holidays were just on the corner and I wouldn’t have much time to organize many schools.

We Need Trees


I met Mohammad on Warm Showers and hosted him for a couple of nights in Barcelona, during which time we talked about travelling, bikes, serendipity, and crazy dreams. He also came to the school where I work – ES International School near Barcelona where a group of highly motivated student-athletes spend their days studying and pursuing their own dreams of becoming great athletes, tennis players and bike racers.
It was a beautiful Friday – the day when we usually have our house meetings at school. Mohammad and I carried a small olive tree on the metro and lost a few
olives on the bus while the sun was rising over the motorway

Planting tree in Adela Abrines - Madrid


Yesterday, it was a pleasure attending at the tree workshop that Mohammad have made in my daughter’s school, called Adela Abrines, in Madrid, Spain. The destiny has made that our life meet Mohammad’s life. I believe life is a movement about give and receive, but he is making it with a very special art. He has told and question to the kids of five and six years old about the essential roll of the trees for all been alive.
And he has made it as their early level, with concise words, short and clear sentences: nest, apples, and shadow, hug the trees, clean the air, give water to the trees

Planting tree in Girona


5 years ago on May 2008 I met Marta Maergali from Spain in New Zealand while we were both cycling but in oposite directions.  we were staying both in  haast in a hostel. just an hour of chat at night and saying goodbye next morning was all our friendship experience.
I kept in touch with her through my common emails I send once a while and when I came to Europe she invited me kindly to his house if I pass through her city.
I cycled through Pyrenees and I entered to Spain from North East and directly I cycled to Girona, where Marta is living.
