BEAUTIFUL NEWLY PUBLISHED ARTICLE ON OUR TOWN: COLD WOOL (José Luis Alvite)
'Vilanova de Arousa is a quiet place, where there are places where you're all that happens. In fifteen days of vacation not remember seeing more than two cars waiting their turn at an intersection. Everything is handmade, so you could say that even the cars go walk anywhere.
At nightfall heard from the street floret while dining cutlery of people. So cool, as I recall that as a child he left cooled in Cambados walk after supper and I ensimismaba watching it burn across the estuary Mount Curota, consumed by an indolent pique fire as it seemed to me that served to refresh the forest while my mother and my aunt Pepita cardigan is fastened around the neck, shaken by a cold without malice that it seemed wool.
In Vilanova was born Ramón María del Valle Inclán, which was a type with just meat to convert hunger packaging. It is also the birthplace of Julio Camba, a writer enviable pen while a man with the wisdom to live in the Hotel Palace almost without spending a penny, in a show pride of their proverbial ability to convert shortages in luxury almost noble.
In Vilanova is a museum dedicated to Valle Inclán, who also honors a bronze figure sitting on a bench near the bandstand in the square where a week ago I was one of the fifteen spectators who attended the performance of a vocal trio that amid strict solitude listened perfectly breathing, repentance and saliva. Then I went to the pier, lit a also cigarette for each hand and amused myself listening to the gentle washing of the tide coughing between ships. And then I thought that Don Ramón del Valle-Inclan was born in the best place in the world and that if ever he questioned its origin, was because he feared that the prosperity of tourism carry forward this fertile and humble orb with which I had barely successful that sea of Arousa, where evening wear long sleeves even flags'.
