    me acordé nomás, mongers, no era fácil. Qué buenos trabajos! muy ingeniosos, me gusta mucho cuando además de arte hay ingenio y mensaje, a ver si se da lo del Born, habrá que insistirle, es raro que lo bochen con el ayuntamiento que hay ahora, será entrarle por otro lado. Bueno, un gusto ver tu obra, si andás por Montjuic un día date una vuelta por mi taller. Un abrazo,
