The neighbor is too loud, Messi buys the house

A solution as only he can to a terribly common problem. It was revealed by a teammate

If your neighbor does too much noise what do you do? Knock on the wall, maybe without fixing it.

But in the end, just buy him home. It is the solution adopted by Leo Messi in Barcelona to protect privacy and tranquility in the residence of Castelldefels.

Ivan Rakitic’s teammate told him in an interview with the Croatian magazine Novi List, which he also wanted to explain how he sees the differences

between Seville and the Catalan capital: “In Andalusia people are like us in Dalmatia, People take it calmly, fuck coffee together and chatter in the street.

In Barcelona they are more ‘Swiss’, they are respected, but they always keep a certain distance.

The Ramblas? I only saw them a couple of times from the team coach when we celebrated the triumphs,

because the club advised us not to go to grim places. ”
Rakitic also emphasized superstar humanity as Neymar and Suarez: “They are people like everyone else even though people think the players’

life is all about glamor and party.

Suarez invited me for his birthday and it was a normal evening: we bought gifts, dined, conversed, and almost all of us were with our families. “

Grammy Awards 2016, triumph in 3 to Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran and Mark Ronson

The “Oscars of the Music” assign a “throne-shaped sofa 3” but Kendrick Lamar, winner in rap, what gets the most gramophones

More than a throne, for the winners of the Grammy Awards in 2016 it would take a three-seat sofa: is Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars and Ed Sheeran the winners of the most important categories of the 58th edition of the “Oscars of the music”.
The album of the year 1989 the former queen of the country, the song is (and could be no doubt) Thinking Out Loud of hair fawn songwriter, while the 2016 record goes to Mark Ronson (feat. Bruno Mars) for the catchphrase Uptown Funk.
All three artists, they are then awarded a further upside statuette (Swift even 2), in dedicated to pop categories.

From a quantitative point of view, however, Kendrick Lamar is the true king of the ceremony, as he took home four awards, all in the categories dedicated to rap; tied in their respective genres, The Weeknd (R & B, Contemporary) and coupled with Skrillex Diplo (dance).

But they were the result, perhaps, to make it even more special than usual the evening dedicated to the music.

Which side live, he confirmed Lady Gaga undisputed queen of the moment: he promised a medley tribute to the late David Bowie, and so it was. And how, if it has been in recent years, the pop diva will also have made some mistakes in the recording industry, but to live is now unreachable.

In addition to David Bowie, they were also dedicated tributes to other artists who have left us in the last year: Stevie Wonder and Pentatonics sang a cappella for Maurice White (founder of Earth, Wind & Fire), while Glenn Frey was remembered by his Eagles. A Lemmy Kilmister has been devoted the first television performance of The Hollywood Vampires (the band composed by Johnny Depp, Alice Cooper and Joe Perry), rather to remind B.B. King played Chris Stapleton, Bonnie Raitt and Gary Clark Jr.

Among the performers that have inflamed the stage of the Grammys 2016, Rihanna was the great absentee: confirmed for some time, the singer has given package at the last minute for a health problem.
The standing ovation went to Adele, another great return “guest” (the album was released after the time limits for records of the year), despite a technical problem could make it out of tune on All I ask. Maybe it was the effect of Lionel Richie, honored as Person of the Year Award, and that months ago had been accomplice of a funny parody of Hello … A Richie was paid a performance by John Legend Group, Demi Lovato, Meghan Trainor, Luke Bryan and Tyrese on the classics of the singer, who then took the stage to sing the evergreen All Night Long. Kendrick Lamar, perhaps galvanized by the awards, has performed in a very intense live; other performances of the evening: Justin Bieber, The Weeknd, Ellie Goulding, Carrie Underwood and Sam Hunt, Andra Day.

The windmills and the Zaanse parks in Holland

The windmills and the Zaanse parks in Holland
A trip to Holland is not complete without a visit to the windmills, one of the symbols of the country, so important that on 9 and 10 May was celebrated the National Day of the mill.

Zaandam is a town in the northeast of Amsterdam where you can visit Zaanse Schans an open air museum with a dozen windmills, 20 minutes by train from Centraal Station Amsterdan, at the Koog-Zaandijk station.

Once off the train, we tourists are welcomed by some guys that give us a map of the area and show us the path to reach the mills along about 1.5 km on foot.

In mid-journey we are immersed in an unusual odor, reminiscent of chocolate, not that intense that spreads to the kitchen when we prepare the hot chocolate, but very small, maybe it’s something else. I remain in doubt until we arrive in front of the ADM Cocoa, known chocolate factory, alas, can not be visited. Zaandam has always been an important industrial area and in the past, the region was home to more than a thousand mills, the oldest dating back to the first half of the fourteenth century.

A few hundred meters down the road, on the right, seen through the red roofs of the four blades of a windmill, a big x-shaped, each arm consisting of a grid, a shovel yes and a no covered with a tarp. The mill is attached to the house of the miller. The upper part of the mill is bell-shaped, at the top of the blades are mounted. The house and the lower part of the coated green wood mill water, the dark green fixtures.

We continue to follow the signs. We pass the modern bridge on the river Zaan Julianabrug and immerse ourselves in a fairytale landscape. Paths along narrow channels in the green, bordered by the colorful houses typical of various shades of green, yellow and white daffodils a bit ‘everywhere.
Now you are visited museums in the morning and early afternoon. Inside it includes the activity that was carried out there. Each mill had a specific function: grinding corn, or olives, or cocoa producing paper or mustard, cut stones.

Zaanse Schans in the park there is also a farm where you can see the working of the Dutch cheese, taste it and buy it. A shop of sweets and a workshop in which to observe the manufacture of klompen: traditional willow and poplar wooden clogs, still used by those who work in the fields.
