This little piece of work you´re reading right now, has a
few happy parts and a lot of sad parts with suppressed ( contempt) rage.
It was started on 11 November, 1997, two days after
The Región, Ourense´s local
newspaper, has started to publish the cover of a beautiful book,
Natural Ourense. It is a book full of incredibly beautiful and
well shot photographs. I wil only use the title and some photographs from this book.
I´d like to congratulate the
authors of the book from these
lines, a book worthwhile collecting. I also would like to congratulate the newspaper to
give the Ourensans the chance of experiencing such a beautiful book.
NATURAL", a joke or a reality, this only wants to show the experiences of an
"Ourensán" who has been travelling at week-ends from one end of the province to
another, searching for rivers and beautiful landscapes where he practices one of his
hobbies, trout fishing. Some other times only to take some
or to pick up some mushrooms, depending on the season and the place.
reality, Ourense is becoming less natural. And that´s the joke and it is very difficult
to sort out. I intend, from this page, to insist on the beauty of
this province and at the same time to raise the alarm about the increasing degradation
which has been taking place in the past years and which will continue if we don´t put a
remedy to it. We have to find the causes and correct the abuse.
