Whatever lapse I’ve had on this blog is probably more than compensated for by my recent microblogging activity. Microblog aka Twitter. I got a data plan for my mobile phone, so I’ve been Tweeting like mad. Or “twiteando” as they say en español. I can tweet from the street; it’s nice, like taking spontaneous notes, something I never had enough discipline to do when it was only on plain paper.
This is some street art by I guess someone named “Tuit Callejero” (“Street Tweet”). “Tweets” posted around the city complete with hashtag. It’s pretty meta.
The text roughly translates as “My favorite excuse is that I feel like it.” “Ganas” doesn’t really have a translation into English. You could say maybe “the urge,” but “ganas” is used way more commonly and lightly than “the urge” is… having ganas is like feeling like (doing something).
Obviously I photographed this and originally posted it on Twitter. This is on Rio Tiber in Colonia Cuauhtémoc, near la Nueva Cuba.
