Sierra de Adrado (Valdés) #Asturias . No soy muy paisajista…pero subía monte arriba y me daba cuenta de lo abandonado que tenemos el occidente de Asturias.

It was just over a year ago that Greece elected Alexis Tsipras and Syriza amid a flurry of anti-austerity sentiment. Things didn’t exactly go as planned.
