One guy told me some time ago that Chris Sharma was going to open a climbing gym in Madrid but until this week I didnt see any news about it (I never looked for it to be honest). So I am quite impressed and I would love to try it one day (if we can travel and lead a normal life…)


I was a bit homesick from a trip with friends last year to Greece so I decided to try moussaka again.

I followed this video and it was very good!!!! I have never tried bechamel that way.

Ingredients for meat mix:

  • 3 aubergines
  • 2 big potatoes
  • 1 big onion
  • 2 or 3 garlic cloves
  • 500g minced lamb (you can use beef of course)
  • olive oil to fry
  • tomate paste
  • 1 can of tomate sauce
  • 250ml water + 2 beef stock cubes
  • 1 bay leaf
  • salt, pepper, 1 tsp of cinnamon.

Ingredients Bechamel:

  • 250ml milk (2 glasses) – warm
  • 120g plain flour + 120g butter
  • 85g parmesan
  • nutmeg
  • 2 egg yolks


1- Slice the aubergines into 1cm thick. Season with salt and set aside for 30 minutes (then dry them properly)

2- While you wait for the aubergines, peel and slice the potatoes.

3- Heat up a pan with olive oil and fry the auberguines and potatoes until golden. Try to remove as much oil when taking out the pan and dry in kitchen paper.

4- In the same pan (medium heat), with a bit of oil, chop the onions and saute for a couple of minutes. Add the garlic.

5- Add the meat, salt, pepper and cinnamon. Once it is cooked, add bay leaf, tomate sauce and stir well. Add the water + beef stock cubes. Once starts reducing the liquied, reduce heat to low and let it simmer while preparing the bechamel.


1- In a sauce pan in low heat, melt the butter, then add the flour and whisk until you have a paste.

2- Start adding the warm milk while whisking. Add pepper and nutmeg.

3- Once it is smooth and think, remove from heat, add the parmesan cheese and egg yolks. Whisk until smooth and thick again. Add a 4-5 tablespoons of bechamel into the meat mix.


1- Pre-heat oven – 180C.

2- In a large deep ovenproof dish, lay down the fry potatoes in 1 layer. Then 1 layer of aubergines. Add meat mix. Then add a last layer of aubergines.

3- Finally add the bechamel on top of the last layer of aubergines. Spread out evenly.

4- Put in the oven until golden brown (45m aprox)

The result was quite good!


Finished this week this book. ADHD is Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. I didnt know it was like your brain madurates more slowly than normal. of Something that is getting more diagnosed these days. Maybe we were like that when younger or even our parents still are. It quite interesting to see how strict is the society when you are not 100% fit for purpose. The education system is built for a common type of child even the interaction with others. If you are not one of that class, you are going to have a difficult time and the future is not going to be very bright neither. So quite challenging to be and live with ADHD. But there are ways to move forwards if you want. The author follows the 5 Cs to deal with this “challenge”:

  • self-Control: If you lose your temper…. breath, meditate, step back.
  • Compassion: Think how the person in the other side feels.
  • Collaboration: Get the other side involvement in the decision making process.
  • Consistency: The process is not just day. It is a long, slow process.
  • Celebration: Yeah, acknowledge the good things. So the other Cs get stronger.

At the end of the day, you are not stupid, you have a different path for madurity and other skills.

At the same time I was reading this book, one day in the radio was this program about dyslexia. It was socking to know that about 50% of USA inmates were dyslexic… And again, it seems the end of the world… but in the program was an interview to one director from GCHQ saying that he was dyslexic and they were hiring for them. Why? Because they see and approach things in a different way.

So, at the end of the day, whatever you have, you can still move forwards in life. You dont need to be in the “normal” range of population/people.
