The New Year's Eve comeback special

Before 2007 ends, I come back from my long hiatus and therefore resolve to be an active blogger again.

For my first entry after months of no posting, enjoy the video I took in 2006 at the Puerta del Sol in Madrid, Spain during the traditional eating of the 12 grapes of luck (12 uvas de la suerte) at the stroke of midnight on the first day of the New Year.

Eating a grape for each of the 12 seconds before the stroke of midnight is supposed to bring you good luck, but in my case, aside from almost choking on a friggin' smally, some gypsies robbed me of my wallet 12 minutes after the last bell. Talk about unholy coincidences.
