Go forward in time to August 2009.
Do you remember that fantastic tomato salad at Gran Canaria which we ordered several times during the same dinner? Yeah, the one with the magic flavor and delicious juices?
You will need these:
Slice the tomatoes no thicker than 3 mm. Arrange them in a nice configuration on a plate. Spread enough olive oil on the tomatoes to drench them, but not to make them swim. Add the lime juice.
Place one thin slice of garlic on top of each slice of tomato, or two slices if the tomato is big. This is important: you want each bite to be an explosion of flavor, and the garlic gets you there. Place a thin slice of onion on each slice of tomato as well.
Sprinkle salt and pepper to taste, making sure that they are spread evenly on the tomatoes.
Grind some cumin; 1/3 teaspoon seems about right for two tomatoes. Sprinkle the cumin evenly on the tomatoes.
Let the salad sit for a bit so that the tomatoes absorb all the flavors. Enjoy with hard or soft Spanish manchego (sheep's milk is best), and crusty bread. You can of course use the bread to mop the juices.
Allow me to invite you to set aside a comfortable afternoon, and read the notes for Dmitri Orlov's talk on economic and social collapse, peak oil, and what to do about ourselves.
The Git user's survey for 2009 is up! Be sure to participate to make Git better.
Two days ago I had the pleasure of dining with the GNOME Hispano crowd.
And today I am happy to report that the cathedral at Las Palmas is beautiful.
Full-size reconstruction of the Christopher Columbus's ship's cabin. This is cozier than our hotel room, and it also has a view to the sea.
Not a six-foot balcony, but made of awesome nonetheless.
Too much sun in your windows? Just put some beautifully cut wooden latticework on them. These are everywhere in Las Palmas.

Seriously. What. The. Fuck.
