Museo Vostell Malpartida

Yesterday I went to visit Cáceres and the Wolf Vostell museum in nearby Malpartida de Cáceres. Some photos taken outside, as they don´t allow photos inside. Great art worth a visit. I once saw Vostell in Lisbon. He was standing in front of me to buy a train ticket, it must have been in the eighties.

This street in Cáceres is named after a guy who, aparently, became famous for being a "thinker". I like the laconic reference. I would like to see streets named after men and women whose claim to the vague imortality of toponimic would be prosaic activities or states of mind, like, for exemple, "John Stuart, nose picker", "Mary Jones, laugher", "Victor vassilovich, moustache trimer", "Anne Bologne, chicken peas cooker", etc.

This reads Espanha in hebrew: ספרד
This signs on the sidewalks mark some historic sefardic routes in spanish cities near the border with Portugal.

This is a beautiful stone arch around a door in Cáceres historic center (casco viejo).
