  1. Hi Cleo, I’ve nominated you and your blog for the Premio Dardos Award:

    1. Thanks so much, Joseph. I feel honoured that you've decided to nominate me, but I'm not so sure about the award itself. And having to name 15 other bloggers is overwhelming. It makes it more like a chain letter than an award. In any case, thanks again -- I appreciate your nomination and I'll think about it.
