Sunday Photos: Los Tilos

It’s been mad busy.

I’ve been translating as fast as I could go and it’s nearly done.

The Festivalito film group is going less well. My third attempt at a script was well received, but I had to miss most of the meeting to firm it up. And the next thing I knew was that the group had broken up for reasons I don’t understand.

It was a tight, and therefore stressful, schedule. Particularly considering that so many people had so little experience. Maybe next year. On the bright side, I learned a lot and met some amazing people. In the end I went to Los Tilos with friends to film something that will hopefully wind up in a film similar to the one we planned to make, just on a calmer timescale. It was fun.

As if translating and Festivalito wereen’t enough to be going on with, the Starlight Foundation organised some ongoing training for Starlight Guides. It was fascinating, but it made a very full week even fuller.

And then I was called for my first vaccine shot. I wasn’t going to miss my chance! So I spent a lot of Thursday morning queuing and waiting around, but I eventually got my miracle of modern science.

I don’t know how much was the vaccine and how much was the 14 hour days, but I was seriously tired on Friday and Saturday.
