Dirt, Dust and Detours

We had started out in Vancouver, Canada. Rough destination Los Angeles. We had taken in some hikes in the rainforests of the Olympic Peninsula and hung around in forlorn fishing villages.

Dirt, Dust and Detours 1

Between these discoveries, long days on pavement unfolded.After two weeks, we had enough of it. Enough of inhaling exhaust fumes and putting on reflective vests.

Enough of being a footnote in someone elses rear-view mirror.We did not want to string experiences together like pearls on a string while spending the remainder of our time staring at each others backs, counting the mile signs.Because the beauty in travelling by bike is the time in between.

The places that fly by just fast enough to stay in memory. The sense of travelling at the uppermost speed necessary for the soul to tag along.So we changed our route from coast to inland, from street touring to bikepacking.

We learnt a lot in the ensuing two months of tumbling down the West Coast in unlikely pirouettes. Looking for gravel roads in the interior. Hunting good espresso along the coast.

Dirt, Dust and Detours 2

Finding dirt along the small dots and lines on our GPS. We would never claim to have found the ultimate way of touring. Others have been before us, others will be after us, all in their own way.

Where there is a bike, the experiences follow suit. It does not depend on how well equipped the bike in question is, how long the road, how well trodden the path. What we find is shaped mostly by who we are and what we are looking for.

For us, this meant looking for detours.Because bikepacking is exactly that in its essence, looking for detours. Slower, grittier and more intense.

These are some of the very personal lessons we have learnt along the way in that huge, diverse and heartwarmingly hospitable country on the other side of the Atlantic.Count smiles, not milesWe met Doug somewhere in Washington. Almost 60 years old, rocket engineer by trade, dealing in used cars for a living, coincidentally the man in the Bowser suit of the Super Mario movie, great storyteller and slightly obsessive about sleeping outside.

He had just crossed the US east to west, with the slimmest bikepacking setup we had ever seen.He supplied us with our main motto.Count smiles, not miles.

How many miles have you ridden today? How many more will you ride today? How many miles per hour?

These questions have the innate power to lead into the wrong kind of daily grind. We can ride for the sake of traveling, for the joy of riding or just for the pleasure of breathing freely. But to ride for the purpose of moving little numbers on a bike computer loses its lure pretty fast.

We did a bit more than 3000 miles in North America. This is just a number, lending itself to nothing more than a bit of illustration. What matters at the end of the day are laughter, beachside heather, salt and the evening sun.

Not miles.Pack light, go farBring less stuff. This has probably been recommended to travellers for centuries.

But many times, people do not follow through with the necessary zeal. We broke our toothbrushes. Developing ever lighter packing styles fosters ingenuity.

Nevertheless, it can also be a recipe for sleepless nights. The line can get thin between just enough and not enough. In the Oregon Outback, we were supplied with beer and water by friendly bowhunters.

We ran out of food on the unexpectedly sweltering North Umpqua trail and navigated the small trail with increasing amounts of pretty feverish steering. We would have loved to have at least a pair of jeans for our visit to the most gourmet vegan restaurant we had ever seen in San Francisco. Thus, we kept on learning.

We named them ortliebers. We only met them on the coastal road, where climbing was moderate and route options were self-explanatory. Carrying the weight equivalent of a dead cow distributed on four to six panniers, they rambled along.

Still, most of them looked like they had fun. Different paths, different goals. Packing light is a challenge born from luxury.

It is a privilege to be able to even think about sizing down. But back home, where materialism reigns supreme and thousands of superfluous objects covet your desire, this self-imposed asceticism helps to keep a level head. There is almost always something somewhere that you do not really need.

Avoid pavementWhenever we stumbled upon locals in the middle of nowhere, we encountered a mixture of bewilderment and encouragement. Feelings of bewilderment were fitting to a country where enormous recreational vehicles sometimes pulled cars behind them that would already be considered obscenely big by European standards. It seems reasonable that the thought of laborious and slow riding on small, winding backroads seemed unnecessarily torturous from that perspective.

But we also encountered lots of encouragement and enthusiasm along the way. We attributed this to the fact that inside almost every American, remnants of the idolized first settlers lie dormant somewhere, leading to considerable enthusiasm for the vastness of the sparsely populated countryside. Bewilderment and enthusiasm were both justified.

Labourious self-torture was sometimes unavoidable in order to truly experience the vastness of the country. It was worth it.Avoiding pavement is the best rule of thumb to arrive at routes where miles are longer, more adventurous and intense.

As soon as the quiet humming of pavement is replaced by the crunch of gravel, things tend to slow down. Cars disappear, settlements shrink, landscapes grow bigger.We rode slower on dirt.

We were more attentive to our surroundings. We rode beside each other, since we did not have to fear cars. We camped on the side of the road.

We swore when wet mud brought us to a standstill. We cursed the nerve-racking corrugations left by off-road vehicles before us. We felt how every bump in the road started leaving its marks on our aching wrists by the end of the day.

But only this brought us to places we will keep in our mind forever. Small restaurants on a windswept plain, where coffee was poured into our cups until we knew everything about the region. A rainy morning after a bivy in the desert, where we got to know the striking beauty this landscape assumes in bad weather.

A remote monastery in the middle of a stretch of coast full of cannabis plantations. and enjoy big city lifeLong days away from the main arteries of travel had another, unexpected advantage. The contrasts between the hinterland and its urban centers became more pronounced.

After spending a couple of days in the Oregon Outback, we tumbled like two yetis into the most beautiful caf of the small town of Klamath Falls. It took us a little while to get used to the presence of other people. In San Francisco, we drowned in a sea of restaurants and vibrant, multicultural neighborhoods.

The lure of the American west coast lies in its stark contrasts. Backcountry solace and high-tech metropolises, conservative fishermen and libertarian eco-extremists, sizzling Latino neighborhoods and refuge towns for retirees all combine. Your very own bike in a big and foreign city is the greatest thing on earth.

Because we rode our bikes into most cities, we also saw their suburbs. We entered into the heart of the city through its stomach. Riding a bike made us connect neighborhoods by going through neighborhoods in between.

Places which would otherwise only have been spared a quick glance from a bus window turned out to be the exact places that made the city come alive to us.We discovered block parties in San Francisco, a small vegan caf in the middle of liquor stores and Mexican washeries in Los Angeles and Portland. Portland is its own bike story.

We went to cyclocross races, joined bike polo parties and rode through town with a bicycle gang, complete with leather jackets, sidecars and three-meter high tallbikes.Sleep under the starsWe must have looked like two hyperactive guys trying to knit a pullover in scuba diving suits. I would pay good money for the footage documenting our attempts of setting up our tent in that pitch black night, startled by a very negligible amount of rain.

But exposure to fickle weather is a small price to pay for the beauty of sleeping outside without a tent. In exchange we got to look up to the stars at night until our eyes got tired, letting the music in our headphones fill the firmament. We enjoyed the few constellations we believed we had gotten to know with a sense of pride.

Sleeping below nothing but the sky makes us small, exposed and human.We lay next to our bikes and the small bit of equipment we carried. In a way, we also lay next to our forefathers.

For centuries, men have lain beneath that ultimate roof, have hoped for the rain to spare them and let the thought of the companion at their side warm them.Use the internet wiselyThe internet can be both. An annoying distraction as well as a source of profound inspiration.

Our lives are ever more penetrated by its blessings and time-stealing tentacles. We were lucky to be able to reflect on this fact throughout our journey.Warmshowers.

org seems to come from a time when the internet was still a nice place. We are (or have become) hosts in Switzerland, but the community is not as well-established over here. This might be rooted in cultural differences.

The generous hospitality we have encountered in United States is very open and proactive if not to say shallow at times. Warmshowers. org thrives on this attitude, a sort of embracing, talkative and curious form of hospitality we started to love.

In our little alpine country on the other side of the Atlantic, such hospitality is seldom found. But compared to the United States it seems to take us a little more time to warm up to people but when we do, the connection might run deeper. To say this does not imply any form of judgement.

The world is made more interesting by different rules in different places.We only used warmshowers.org in San Francisco and Los Angeles.

In San Francisco we landed in a warehouse-turned-shared flat full of twentysomethings leading very different lifestyles. The breadth of insights into the living conditions in San Francisco beyond the hype we gathered through this was very enriching. In Los Angeles, we met two of the most hospitable people we had ever met in this already hospitable country.

Devon and Jess opened their crowded and very small flat as well as their hearts to us. They surprised us with a healthy dose of irony about the unwieldy and gritty metropolis they live in but managed to convey its sparkle as well.Another amazing thing about the internet is the way it opened up paths and routes for us, two guys from the other side of the world with little knowledge of the region.

GPS tracks and route descriptions on velodirt. com, bikepacking. net and various bikepacking blogs enabled us to take on routes we would have never dared to otherwise.

We are still incredibly thankful for a blog post of some guys Condor Ride which brought us to one of the most amazing landscapes we had seen throughout our trip, the geological wonderland of the Carrizo Plains National Monument.We would not have had these experiences without the internet. Still, however precious the internet is as a source of information and way of getting in touch with like-minded strangers, it als has its drawbacks.

One of them we coined the WiFi Stalldrang (a german word for the desire of cattle to return to their stable). We noticed it both, a clear sign that we definitely belong to a generation that has deeply incorporated the internet into its life, for good or bad. The whirlpool of news, emails, facebook messages, blog updates and other facets of our digital existence can develop a suck that is not be underestimated.

The Wifi Stalldrang is its consequence. It has dire consequences. Quiet talks in beautiful cafs may be superimposed by digital fantasy worlds.

Foreign landscapes may be crossed by jumping from hotspot to hotspot. Many things are lost this way.But a journey containing long stretches without access to the internet offers the chance to reflect on this.

Mindfully, we are perfectly capable of facing up to the hyperactive drumrolls of the digital world. The world, the soil, the stars, the rain will always still be there tomorrow, even if we have not checked our emails today.This story appeared first in Bikepackers Magazine on June 3, 2015

Sausalito Community/a Tale of Two Landlords
Sausalito Community/a Tale of Two Landlords
To our Marin County Members: From all of our Soulstice Team, we are sending you love and care! Like all of you, the past three months have presented challenges beyond what we could have ever imagined. We appreciate the support and empathy so many of you have shown our team during these difficult days and decisions.While we will not be re-opening at our Marin County location, we wanted to give our much-loved Sausalito Members some ways to stay connected with our community going forward, options for self-care and guidance, and a new ability to contribute to the well-being and care of others. We know many of you have existing credits and gift cards, and weve dreamed up some creative ways for you to benefit and utilize them mind, body and spirit!Marin County Member Options!If you are a Marin County Soulstice Member & have existing member credits: All existing credits have been stored on your account and will remain active until 12/25/20 Your existing credits may be used at our Sonoma County location (road-trip up to beautiful Sonoma County and visit us!), converted to amazing personal discovery and guidance sessions, retail purchases, Sonoma County workshop and event purchases, or donated to our studio & healing work for our communityPAY-IT-FORWARD Were excited to announce our giving program! You may convert your existing credits to a healing gift for frontline health care workers, first responders and essential workers. 100% of your credits will be gifted to individuals who keep us safe, healthy and feed our community during this extended crisis To donate your credits to an eligible individual, please email us at .Many of you have been understandably curious how and why weve come to the decision to close our Marin County studio while keeping our Sonoma County studio open. As we entered into March 2020, our Marin County studio enjoyed a robust, fully subscribed membership was profitable and sustainable with an exceptional staff of teachers, therapists and team. Our Marin County studio is both larger and generates more revenue than our Sonoma County studio does, our vibe was happy and our business sound so we understand our decision might be a little mystifying.In many ways our small businesss experience parallels the question facing all of us in this moment in history: do we continue on with the status quo of only looking out for ourselves, taking more than we need at the expense of others and making decisions only reflective of our personal interest? Or do we evolve into a higher, more conscious way of life making decisions with the collective interest in mind, reflecting the shared needs of the community and practicing empathy and compassion in our actions. Do we value businesses based only on their ability to raise money and return a profit to shareholders, or do we begin to value our businesses based on the healthy impact they have on providing connection and care for our communities.Our experience in Sonoma County and Marin County after the SIP order went into effect could not have been more different, and has played an unfortunately large role in our decision to close in Sausalito. It serves as a wonderful example and lesson on the choice we all now face: stubbornly hanging onto the old ways (rigid self-interest above all else, money matters most, negotiating with fear and intimidation, communicating without empathy or compassion) or embracing the new way (seeking collaboration, exercising empathy, acting with mutual respect and consideration, trusting in and investing in the bigger picture, long term benefits and relationship. )In Sonoma County: Along with an outpouring of love, empathy and donations from our community, our Santa Rosa landlord offered us compassion for the difficult situation and provided us a generous discount on our monthly rent during the extended closure. He assured us we were all in this together and would work together to get through it, allowing us to pay our rent late without penalty while we sorted out complicated relief funding and requested support from our community. Our Sonoma County landlord owns our shopping complex, and his income is directly tied to his tenants rental payments. He understood that our survival depended upon his ability to compromise and lose a small amount of money in the short term in exchange for our long term success and relationship.In Marin County: Within three days of the SIP order and without notice, our Sausalito landlord cashed four months worth of rent checks they had been sitting on, uncashed. (In 2019 they sat on seven months worth of rent checks before cashing them all in one day. ) Our Marin County landlord is a physician at MarinHealth, with an essential worker qualification and salary; his income does not solely rest on our rental payments, in fact he has shown twice that he can allow 47 months to pass without cashing them.On April 20th I contacted our Sausalito landlord to let him know we would need to exercise Marin Countys Rent Resolution, recently passed to allow tenants momentary rent relief during SIP closures without penalty or eviction. I received no reply. On May 11th, I contacted him to let him know based on our anticipated COVID19 losses estimated at over $250K that we were going to immediately begin seeking a new owner for our small community healing arts business and would not be renewing our lease. Five years since our founding in 2015, we have built a beautiful community of members, a profitable, highly regarded business and amazing, talented team; I expressed my intention to do everything possible to find a new owner and tenant, and requested permission to leave our equipment, furnishings and artwork in the studio beyond the end of our lease (May 31st) to pave the way for a new owner. The landlord replied and agreed, and said hed send terms in a few days. I didnt hear from him again until Friday May 29th, when he demanded I immediately pay our past-due rent and presented onerous legal terms in order to keep the studio staged as Soulstice. Three separate real estate investors and our lawyer reviewed the contract and counseled me not to sign. I let the landlord know we would not be able to work with him under these terms, and assured him I would clear and vacate the studio as soon as possible. Two moving crews and three sixteen hour days later, I had 90% of our belongings out when I returned to the studio on Monday June 1 to find the locks changed. Following that, I received an email from the landlord demanding I meet him that week and pay our rent in full before he would return our remaining belongings. Essentially his plan was to ransom our furnishings, artwork and inventory to force us into paying rent that we were legally in our rights to pay late.After Congress revised PPP relief funding guidance on Wednesday June 3, I was able to afford our back rent and paid the landlord in full on June 4th. Had Tony afforded us a few days of trust and patience, he would have not only received all the rent due to him within days, he would have received a beautifully staged studio, our uplifting and positive presence there and my full intention to help someone assume new ownership and maintain a beautiful healing arts presence in our community.Since Tony still holds onto my security deposit (still unreturned as of June 11,) he essentially created this unnecessarily awful situation over what amounts to one single months rent. Instead of working together and exercising compassion during the most challenging moment in our existence, he chose to bully, threaten and exploit and in the process hurt me, our Soulstice team and most of all the Sausalito community. If you know me then you know I am a highly motivated optimist and in the face of losing so much I was still upbeat that we could preserve Soulstices healing work here in Sausalito. My ability to continue our work in the world somehow, somewhere is vastly more important to me than money. And I trusted that walking into a turn-key, sustainable and harmonious business would have been a dream-come-true for the right person. I regret that one persons extreme greed and short-sightedness has made that impossible; the lack of alignment and failure of right action precludes me from promoting or working with this landlord in any capacity.I share this all with you in the spirit of transparency and as an example that we all need to we must support radical societal change and fiercely support and defend our changemakers. People who own companies, buildings and real estate and political office hold out-sized power over the rest of us and we need more people in these positions of power who embody the qualities of the future, not the past. I poured every drop of my heart and soul into our little business, and together our team made something uniquely lovely, a space of softness and touched the lives of thousands of people for their betterment, healing and growth. If I am to be truthful with you all, the COVID epidemic didnt kill our business in Marin; the greater epidemic of human greed and selfishness is responsible. We are the ones weve been waiting for, friends its up to us to be the change with our voice, our resources, our compassion and action. Our future can look and feel like a kind, joyful, grateful and inspired place or it can be a hollow, miserable, empty shell. The choice is ours

Le Sens Commun Des Machines
Les algorithmes de deep learning apprennent fonctionner limage des enfants auxquels on apprend reconnatre un lphant ou bien distinguer un rond dun carr. On demande un rseau de neurones de reconnatre une image -par exemple- et sil se trompe, il ajustera ses paramtres pour amliorer ses performances venir, puis enfin on recommence jusqu obtenir une performance convenable. On peut alimenter ces algorithmes de millions dimages ou de textes mais il nexiste toujours pas de mthode leur permettant dacqurir ce que nous pouvons appeler le sens commun, cest dire la connaissance de base pour comprendre le monde comme lexplique Yann LeCun*. Ce sont les mathmatiques qui gouvernent le fonctionnement des rseaux de neurones pour mimer le fonctionnement dun cerveau : cest la fois la force et la faiblesse du deep learning. Cela permet en effet un grand pouvoir danalyse : tous les outils mathmatiques existants sont au service de la recherche en intelligence artificielle et ont permis les avances que nous connaissons. Mais modliser les choses ne fait pas des ordinateurs des cerveaux lectroniques. La manire dont les rseaux de neurones ajustent leurs paramtres (appele backpropagation) engendre des performances parfois impressionnantes : par exemple cette intelligence artificielle plus efficace que les dermatologues pour dpister des cancers de la peau. Bien souvent, pour atteindre de telles performances, les rseaux neuronaux vont extraire des donnes dentre des caractristiques (des features) imperceptibles par lhomme et difficiles -voire impossibles- rationaliser. Ceci engendre des erreurs tonnantes pour nous, humains, puisquen modifiant lgrement la texture dune image, on peut faire passer une tortue pour un AK-47. Une machine reste bien une machine, rappelons-le nous.Pour imiter au mieux le cerveau humain afin damliorer encore la performance des machines, peut-tre faut il se rapprocher davantage dun modle physique du fonctionnement du cerveau. Cest un saut conceptuel important car cela peut remettre en question larchitecture mme des ordinateurs. Il sagirait de combiner ou de remplacer le modle mathmatique et binaire des rseaux de neurones par un modle plus physique, et atteindre ainsi une forme de cerveau artificiel.*La mthode scientifique Y a-t-il un cerveau dans la machine ?, France Culture, Interview de Yann Le Cun par Nicolas Martin
Tres Reglas Para El Servicio Al Cliente.
Tres Reglas Para El Servicio Al Cliente.
Bienvenidos a otra semana de entrenamiento de mejora continua integral donde te brindo estrategias practicas y tcticas para mejorar tu productividad en tu vida personal o laboral.Desde que puedo recordar la mayora de mis spring breaks, veranos, fechas festivas y religiosas incluyendo cumpleaos las festejaba en Estados Unidos de America y tuve el privilegio de vivir no solamente en una comunidad, pero tambin en una era donde mis vecinos tocaban el timbre y me invitaban a salir a jugar con ellos en la calle o en los patios de nuestras casas y juzgbamos deportes incluso con juguetes cuando estbamos muy chicos.Te comparto ese pequea porcin de mi pasado porque los juguetes o el equipo deportivo con el que jugbamos era de TOYS R US; una de las jugueteras ms grandes de ese pas, la cual la semana pasada oficialmente cierra todas sus puertas debido al cambio del mercado y finanzas corporativas. Ms de 31,000 empleados directos se quedarn sin trabajo.Muchos grandes como esa empresa piensan que son inmortales y que siempre dominarn, por eso esta semana les ensear de servicio al cliente y como afecta tus ventas, tu cultura de trabajo, y tus finanzas.Hace unas semanas estaba platicando de servicio al cliente con un empresario reconocido de nuestra ciudad y me dijo que el no tena un departamento designado y que no lo necesitaba. Escucha con atencin mi respuesta. Le dije: Jorge, tu decisin en base a todos tus aos de experiencia y tu xito econmico est incorrecta por dos razones y la primera es que lo ms importante de un negocio es el cliente, y si no sabes porqu, simplemente dime: cmo es un negocio que no trata con altos estndares a sus clientes, o peor an cmo es un negocio sin clientes?Ustedes saben que los tiempos cambian, antes las compaas eran enfocadas a productos o servicios diciendo nosotros vendemos muebles, bebidas energticas o computadoras; pero las grandes empresas ahora son enfocadas al cliente y esto les permite crear su estrategia para calidad y el xito.Porque desde la tarea ms insignificante hasta la ms importante el objetivo de ambas deben de satisfacer al cliente o ayudar a otros para que ellos logren esto y en el momento que cambias tu perspectiva enfocndote a quien atiendes, como lo atiendes y para que, es el momento que tu organizacin comienza a crear su misin y visin la que en ocasiones tantos presumen, pero muchos ni recuerdan el texto de sus letreros.El error ms costoso para un empresario, o para el gerente quien dirige la empresa, es pensar o tratar a los departamentos por separado. Claro que tienen diferentes tareas y metas, pero la responsabilidad de entregar excelencia al cliente debe ser compartida por todos. La sinergia de una organizacin es tan importante porque el momento que uno se retrasa o baja su calidad tu mquina de dinero comienza a desalinearse.Entonces para tener un mejor servicio al cliente, primero tienes que confirmar que tus empleados conozcan sus responsabilidades, las polticas de tu empresa y por ltimo es sumamente importante que todos usen el mismo lenguaje para evitar que unos comprendan las cosas de una manera y otros asuman las cosas de otra. Haz la prueba hoy, y pregunta a todos tus empleados: especficamente como se debe sentir cada cliente al terminar su negocio con nosotros?Una sola respuesta diferente significa que no tienen objetivos en comn y ese es otro problema que evita que brindes excelencia en tu servicio.La importancia de la sinergia a lo ancho y a lo largo de la organizacin como muchas cosas que les digo, tambin es solo el comienzo porque podemos hablar especficamente por horas, pero ustedes solo tienen un os minutos conmigo en este medio, entonces en 30 segundos les dar mis 3 reglas de servicio al cliente las cuales son las semillas para crear un paraso.- Nunca sers lo suficiente rico o importante para tratar de mala manera a una persona quien no se lo merece. 2. - La ley de Murphy es fundamental para mi filosofa.Todo lo malo que pueda pasar en una situacin pasar, si lo permites. Cmo es tu escolta avanzada? Si tu gran experiencia y xitos no te permiten prevenir o aprovechar situaciones no tienes la esencia del conocimiento; lo cual es aplicarlo. 3. - Entrena primero la mente y despus la habilidad como los guerreros Shei.Conozco personas con discapacidades fsicas quienes han logrado ms que personas con el privilegio de caminar.Nuestra imaginacin es nuestra limitante.Los que leen mis columnas con atencin saben que uso muchas analogas; mencione el concepto de escolta avanzada para tu servicio al cliente, pero unos no lograron hacer la conexin entonces te explico rpidamente. En otras ocasiones les he dicho lo peligroso que es estar preso a una sola manera de ver las cosas y tambin lo peligroso que puede ser no querer ver las cosas negativas.Por eso es importante tener una escolta avanzada la cual se encargar de analizar todo lo malo que pude pasar en base a la situacin, el personal o la estrategia y esta se comunica con tu equipo base para actualizar el reconocimiento y adaptar o modificar su plan.Entonces no es suficiente tener una misin y visin, tener los manuales operativos, tener evaluaciones y supervisin; tambin es necesario tener este equipo quien detectar las posibles amenazas a tu organizacin, desde personal ineficiente, un plan incompleto, la calidad de ejecucin o cualquier otra cosa que pueda pasar. Por eso cuando conozco tu destino deseado te hago saber exactamente todas tus fallas para prevenir errores y despejar tu camino para lograr ese buen ambiente de trabajo y buen servicio al cliente quienes todos quieren, pero pocos dominan.Enfocate a tu futuro para arreglar tu presente utilizando experiencias del pasado. Todos tenemos un espacio indefinido para mejorar.

Lexprience au temple de Guinsa a t plutt intense, bien quelle ait dure trs peu de temps. Elle a t intense en terme dmotions, de rencontres, de spiritualit, de beaut tout simplement. Le lieu, les personnes qui taient avec nous ont rendu cette exprience marquante. Les aurevoirs sont difficiles. Cest un peu comme si depuis Danyang, nous avions vcu une parenthse enchante dans notre voyage. Entre la rencontre de Jang Hi, notre hte, qui nous a partag une partie de sa vie quelle passe avec sa famille en voyage et tenir une petite auberge, la rencontre de Yoon, la dcouverte de la librairie perdue au milieu de la fort, le mont Birobong, le temple, la rencontre de Shreen, Bianca, Patrick, Claudine, Laure-Anne, Allan et Blanca, nous avons vraiment t gts.Depuis Danyang, nous prenons un bus en direction de la ville de Andong. Il sagit de la ville la plus proche du village hanok dHahoe. Sur notre guide la ville dAndong est recommande pour son march, sa proximit avec Hahoe et la culture des masques un peu la Comedia dellarte dans la rgion.Fait intressant : Le village dHahoe figure au patrimoine mondial de lUNESCO. Cest lun des villages composs danciennes maisons typiques corennes qui est le mieux conserv.Le long de la route menant Andong, nous observons principalement des champs et plusieurs panneaux solaires. Nous observons galement des hrons qui prennent leur envol lourdement depuis les champs de riz. Ils sont assez rigolos. De loin, ce sont des oiseaux trs fins et nous pourrions penser quils senvolent facilement. Et bien non. Ils avancent leur buste et leur long bec, commencent battre des ailes plus ou moins rapidement et finissent par senvoler. En revanche, une fois quils ont dcoll, ils rasent un peu les champs de riz et prennent de laltitude assez rapidement. A la gare dAndong, nous rencontrons quelques difficults pour trouver le bus que nous devons prendre pour nous rendre au motel que nous avons rserv. Notre chauffeur nous indique rapidement o il faut que lon aille, mais nous ne connaissons pas notre numro de bus. Il y a beaucoup de jeunes. Il semble que nous sommes en plein dans les heures de sortie des collges et lyces. Nous demandons en anglais des tudiantes de nous aider, mais ils se mettent rire sans nous rpondre. Une adolescente, moins timide que les autres, nous indique le numro du bus que nous devons prendre. Pendant que nous attendons, un groupe de jeunes garons en pleine crise dhormones se met chahuter. En un coup doeil, il est facile didentifier un gros dur, un plus fin avec des lunettes lair plus intello et trois autres. Le gros dur narrte pas de mettre la tte de celui lunette sous son bras, de le chatouiller, de le bloquer pendant que les autres rigolent. La scne est trs nervante. On a envie daller voir ce gros dur et de le remettre sa place avec ses amis. Cependant, le souffre douleur rigole aussi et ne sloigne pas Ils finissent par monter dans le bus avec nous. Le gros dur sen prend dsormais un autre membre de son groupe qui semble tre hypnotis par lui. Bref, 40 minutes de trajet avec des adolescents qui chahutent bizarrement dans le fond du busNous finissons par arriver notre motel. Nous dcouvrons les chambres de ces fameux motels qui parfois sont simplement destins aux couples pour quelques heures. Notre chambre est plutt grande et dcore avec un papier peint remplit de bouches de diffrentes couleurs. Une notice dinformation est pose sur le bureau prcisant quil est interdit de venir dans le motel avec des jeunes filles mineures maries Le matelas est dur comme du bton, ce qui nous surprend, si les personnes viennent passer du bon temps dans cet htel. Nous trouvons aussi diffrents accessoires comme des prservatifs ou un kit pour se ligoter. Bref, nous sommes un peu fatigus et cela nous fait plus ou moins rire.La ville de Andong me fait un peu penser Vierzon, ville situe dans le dpartement du Cher en France. Cest une ville tendue, mais avec une ou deux rues commerantes un peu touristiques et un march o lon trouve la fois des vendeurs de vtements, de casseroles, des restaurants de rue, des vendeurs de poissons, de viande, de lgumes, etc. Il y a tout au march. Mise part cela, la ville a un vieux quartier dhanok bien cconserv, mais que nous navons pas vu et elle est trs proche du village dHahoe.Nous nous rendons donc dans ce fameux village, le lendemain de notre arrive Andong. Nous prenons un bus pour nous rendre Hahoe. Nous tombons sur un chauffeur qui se croit sur un cricuit de course (pour changer), il se met doubler les voitures en pleine ville, acclre sur les dos dnes et les virages. A quelques reprises, on sest dit que lon allait finir dans le foss. Le village dHahoe est plutt mignon. Il y a plein dhanok trs bien conserves, mais nous ne pouvons pas rentrer les visiter, car des personnes vivent encore dedans. Cest plutt drle de voir des mercedes gares devant des maisons en terre et en bois. De lextrieur, les maisons semblent plutt rudimentaires. Nous sommes seuls dans le village, nous ne voyons presque personne et il y a peu dindications. Nous suivons le parcours recommand, mais mis part les noms des illustres personnes qui ont habit dans les maisons, nous nen apprenons malheureusement pas beaucoup.Fait intressant : Le village dHahoe reflte la culture aristocratique confucenne sous lpoque Joseon. Il comprenait des maisons des familles dirigeantes ou des hauts fonctionnaires. Il sagissait aussi dun village clanique, cest--dire que les familles qui vivaient dans le village se rclamaient dun anctre commun.Le village est entoure dune rivire, ce qui donne un ct trs charmant avec les arbres qui sparent la rivire de la route et du village. Nous nous arrtons dans une des hanok pour une dgustation de th. Dlicieux. Le cadre est magnifique.Aprs cette petite pause, nous avons un petit creux, mais malheureusement il ny a quune dame dans tout le village qui vend quelque chose manger : des brins de mas bouillis. Heureusement, car avec la chaleur nous commenons faiblir. En nous dirigeant vers le spectacle de masques, nous faisons une rencontre surprenante. Laurent et Evelyne, le couple denseignants franais que nous avons rencontr Danyang est aussi dans le village. La coincidence est plutt drle. Nous commenons discuter et ils nous racontent leur mode de voyage. Depuis plusieurs annes, ils voyagent en Asie, car ils apprcient les diffrents types de cuisine et surtout ils peuvent passer plus de temps en vacances plutt que de rester en Europe. Ainsi, ils ont fait plusieurs reprises la Chine, la Thalande, le Vietnam, le Laos, et bien dautres pays encore. Leurs meilleurs souvenirs de voyage sont au Laos et en Birmanie, quils nous conseillent de visiter. Nous assistons tous les quatre au spectacle typique des masques. Il sagit dun spectacle avec un groupe de musique et des petites scnettes qui sont joues par des comdiens qui portent des masques. En fonction des masques, les comdiens jouent toujours le mme personnage. Il sagit dhistoires populaires connues qui moquent les bourgeois, les moines bouddhistes ou qui dnoncent des situations injustes. Ces histoires courtes sont plutt drles et plus ou moins faciles comprendre avec les mimes des comdiens, mme si lon ne comprend pas le coren.Evelyne et Laurent partent direction Andong aprs le spectacle, tandis que nous dcidons daller visiter le muse des masques. Cest un petit muse intressant qui permet de prendre conscience que depuis des milliers dannes les socits humaines, sur tous les continents, se sont dotes trs rapidement de masques pour moquer des faits de socits ou pour orchestrer diffrents types de rituels spirituels. Cela me rappelle des cours danthropologie que javais suivi pendant ma licence et dont javais oubli quelques parties avec le temps.Fait intressant : Le plus vieux masque trouv en Core date de 5000 an avant J-C. Il a t ralis dans un coquillage. Le soir avant de rentrer lhtel, nous allons la dcouverte dun barbecue coren. Comme notre habitude, nous rentrons dans le restaurant en faisant confiance au nombre de personnes lintrieur. Le patron du restaurant a une aura qui rayonne travers son sourire. Cest un vrai plaisir de discuter avec lui et son barbecue est dlicieux. Il y a bien videmment de la viande, mais sur le ct du barbecue, il fait fondre du fromage avec du mas. Nous faisons fondre des oignons et nous mangeons le tout enroul dune feuille de salade. Nous passons un agrable moment dans ce petit restaurant.Le passage Andong est plutt mitig. Nous y avons pass quun seul jour complet et nous connaissant, je pense que ctait suffisant. Nous avons apprci le sjour, mais nous avons t un peu dus par le village dHahoe. Nous nous attendions ce quil y ait peut-tre des visites guides dans le village, plus de panneaux explicatifs en anglais, etc. Quant la ville dAndong, cest une ville qui se dveloppe avec les touristes qui viennent visiter Hahoe village. Dans les rues pitonnes vides de monde, nous trouvons des magasins de marques trangres comme le Coq sportif, Vans et dautres dont je nai pas retenu le nom. Cela nous donne une impression un peu superficielle de la ville.Ce premier coup de mou dans le voyage, nous amne parler beaucoup de lavenir. Nous avons du mal rester dans le prsent comme les moines du temple de Guinsa nous recommandaient. Cest fascinant quel point en quelques heures, notre bulle de voyage sest envole. Une seule image me vient en tte pour dcrire notre impression dAndong est il sagit des montagnes russes. Nous sommes monts haut avec beaucoup de plaisir et la cadence ralentie pour nous ramener plus vers les choses de la vie. Si nous parlons du futur, cest pour nous consoler de notre bulle envole et de notre mal du pays. Cela nous rassure et nous motive, mais il ne faut pas oublier ce que nous sommes en train de vivre pour ne pas se blaser des choses auxquelles nous commenons nous habituer

Torronts, Ms Argentina Que El Dulce De Leche
Torronts, Ms Argentina Que El Dulce De Leche
Si bien es cierto que Argentina es sinnimo de Malbec (cepa francesa adaptada a las mil maravillas a nuestro pas), debemos aceptar que Argentina es ms que malbec; es bonarda, otra cepa fornea adaptada y sobre todo es torronts, cepa 100% argentina.La torronts es una cepa blanca aromtica, deliciosa y con personalidad que tiene sus races en Argentina. Segn la Guild of Sommeliers existen tres tipos de torronts: Riojano, Mendocino y Sanjuanino, todos provenientes del cruce entre Moscatel de Alejandra y alguna variedad criolla. El ms cultivado y reconocido es el Torronts Riojano, producto del cruce entre Criolla Chica y Moscatel de Alejandra.Existen aproximadamente 8.000 hectreas cultivadas en Argentina y se extiende de norte a sur a los pies de la magnfica Cordillera de los Andes. Aunque tambin existen algunas pequeas parcelas en otras partes del pas. La zona clsica de cultivo es Salta con 935 hectreas, donde el perfil aromtico del vino es de intensidad alta, floral, ctrico y terpnico (amoscatelado), acidez media baja y alcohol medio alto con un tpico amarguito al final de la boca.Mapa de De Dnde Vino el Vino mapa interactivo desarrollado por la Universidad Nacional de Cuyo y el grupo Hacks/Hackers MendozaPara quien no haya probado torronts, lo puede comparar con gewrztraminer o un moscatel.La provincia de Mendoza cuenta con el cultivo de ms del 40% del torronts de la Argentina. Tradicionalmente era cultivado en las zonas ms clidas, en parrales y con altos rendimientos. En los aos recientes se ha llevado a las zonas ms altas y por ende, ms frescas de la provincia de Mendoza.En el bello Valle de Uco, se cultivan aproximadamente 200 hectreas de torronts riojano. Gracias a la altitud (950 a 1450 msnm) y a la latitud, los das presentan una gran amplitud trmica brindando un perfil totalmente diferente para esta cepa en comparacin con la zona clsica.Es mejor un torronts riojano del norte o del centro del pas? No. Ambos son excelentes ejemplares nobles a su terruo con diferentes perfiles. Les doy un consejito, organicen una cata comparativa con un amigos con torronts de diferentes regiones con y sin madera, para que puedan ver su versatilidad.Segn Evan Goldstein MS, en su libro Daring Pairings, las opciones del viticultor de torronts son: Aejado o no, Seleccin de clones, cultivo en zonas bajas o de gran altitud, varietal o blend y contacto con sus pieles u hollejos o no.EL TORRONTES Y SUS ROLESEl torronts con aperitivosIdeal para acompaar quesos, en especial quesos de cabra con especias y ni hablar de unas empanadas de humita. El torronts en la cocteleraSe lleva de maravilla con jugos tropicales: maracuy, mango y anan. Tambin con jugos ctricos, en especial con pomelo rosado. El balance se logra agregndole un bitter como Aperol o Campari. El torronts y los postresLos postres dulces y ctricos como el lemon pie o el cheese cake con salsa de maracuy quedan fantsticos con un espumoso dulce de torronts.El Torronts en la cocinaEl pollo a la mostaza con torronts o carne a la olla al torronts suelen ser un clsico en mi familia y tambin deberan probarlo en un caldillo de mejillones o almejas.Los invito a probar su versatidad y su gran expresividad. Levantemos la copa brindemos por un mejor futuro para nuestro pas y para nuestra Pairing de Evan GoldsteinDe dnde Vino el Vino
