The River

No, not the album by Bruce Springsteen. Our river is fascinating, upstream and downstream, it changes character as it twists and turns. It one place it is fast, in a hurry, more water rushing past than can be measured, splashing down waterfalls, carrying overhanging branches with it as it hurries downstream. But turn a corner and it slows, takes its time, becomes transparent, pausing in pools, revealing the secrets beneath the surface.

Read a bit more about the Rio Corbones here.

5 to remember
río arriba – upstream
río abajo – downstream
salpicadando/a – splashing
estar pendiente sobre – to overhang
debajo de la superficie – beneath the surface

    Lovely. Do you ever see any kingfishers there? I’ve seen a lot of storks flying overhead in Barcelona recently, migrating south – lucky things. They should bird up and face the winter like the rest of us, in my opinion.
