Whenever I travel there are three places I always try to visit: museums, bookshops and cafés. It’s a classic, my trinity of happiness. A few weeks ago I finally had the opportunity to travel to Dublin and Galway (West Ireland) and, how rare, these three things were marked on my map.

Just as we wrote in our last post (sorry, only in Spanish), this last weekend the second-hand market Lost & Found has took place in the Cultural Centre Conde Duque’s patio.
