We just came back from the King Juan Carlos I Center at NYU, where the overflow crowd in the little auditorium kept us from seeing the documentary, El Milagro de Candeal, directed by Fernando Trueba, about Bebo Valdés's journey to Salvador de Bahía (Brazil) to be reunited with his African roots. It's funny. Just a couple of days ago we got back from Spain, where we saw the real King Juan Carlos I on TV almost every night, along with Queen Sofia (they were on state visit to Morocco) and their tall son Felipe, Prince of Asturias. So we're back home, listening to our CD of Bebo and Cigala; that'll have to do.
The other thing they've got going at the Juan Carlos Center is a big photo display celebrating Pamplona and Hemingway, with lots of quotes from The Sun Also Rises. That guy could really write action scenes.
