One thought on “Picasso

  1. Last summer, I went with a friend to see an interesting exhibition: Lighthouses: The light should never switch off, the history of these kind of buildings used to mark dangerous coastlines. For centuries, they were, beside the stars, the only aid for maritime pilots.
    Apart from technological developments, what I found more interesting was the life in the lighthouses, at the time in which men and women controlled them with their hands. A very difficult job considering that they had to live isolated for many days.
    I enjoy this kind of exhibitions, the ones that show the advances in the evolution of the human being life,
