La Mona

"La Mona de Pascua" is a famous cake typical from
Catalonia and Valencia and it symbolizes the Eastern Week's ending. It's only eaten on "Eastern Monday". Commonly, godfathers use to give these cakes to their godchildren as a gift.

At the beggining it was just a cake with hard boiled eggs on it decorated with feathers. But soon chocolate eggs took over the normal ones. These chocolate eggs cakes were the first "monas".

The recipe was taken from the moors that lived in Spain. They used to bake a cake called "munna" as a gift for they masters. That's why it has such a weird name "mona" (mona also means a female monkey).


This is a monkey. Monkeys are awesome.


If you ever visit Catalonia or Valencia on the "Eastern Week" don't forget to taste one of these delicious cakes.

Dani.

EASTER IN POLAND

Easter, also called Pascha, is the most important religious feast in the Christian liturgical year.
The week before Easter is very special in the Christian tradition. The Sunday before Easter is
Palm Sunday and the last three days before Easter are Maundy Thursday or Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Holy Saturday (sometimes referred to as Silent Saturday). Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday and Good Friday respectively commemorate Jesus' entry in Jerusalem, the Last Supper and the Crucifixion. Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday are sometimes referred to as the Easter Triduum (Latin for "Three Days"). In some countries, Easter lasts two days, with the second called "Easter Monday." The week beginning with Easter Sunday is called Easter Week or the Octave of Easter, and each day is prefaced with "Easter," e.g. Easter Monday, Easter Tuesday, etc. Easter Saturday is therefore the Saturday after Easter Sunday. The day before Easter is properly called Holy Saturday. Many churches start celebrating Easter late in the evening of Holy Saturday at a service called the Easter Vigil

Bialystok isn't big so we have only ... buses.There are many of them so you can get every where. You can buy disposable ticket or for one month (which is cheaper for those who use buses every day). If you want to check how many buses we have and how do they look like, you can visit the side http://www.komunikacja.bialystok.pl/
Buses are not very comfortable and fast so for those who are in a hurry and don't have a car there are cabs. The cabs aren't yellow. Bialystok's cabs are different cars. We have many cab's companies but the most popular are : 9191 and 9626 (those numbers are telephone numbers).

Unusual mean of transport


Funicular is a little train. It goes from Paral.lel, next to the underground stop, to Montjuic. Once at the top there if you want you can catch Teleféric and go to the top pf Montjuic, where there is a Castle.

It’s a slowly train and one part of the way is underground. You cannot see beautiful views but is the most ecological and cheapest transport to go to the top of mountain Montjuic, better than with you car.
