What did really Ezekiel see?


From the Old Testament of the Holy Bible, Ezekiel 1:1-28

"...and I looked, and, behold, a stormy wind came out of the north, a great cloud, with a fire flashing up, so that a brightness was round about it; and out of the midst as the color of electrum, out of the midst of the fire. 
And out of the midst came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance: they had the likeness of a man. 
And every one had four faces, and every one of them had four wings. 
And their feet were straight feet; and the sole of their feet was like the sole of a calf’s foot; and they sparkled like the color of burnished brass. And they had the hands of a man under their wings on their four sides; and as for the faces and wings of them four. Their wings were joined one to another; they turned not when they went; they went every one straight forward..."

Se non guardiamo al racconto con gli occhi da credente ci accorgeremo che l'avvenimento narrato da ezechiele è il racconto di un  incontro ravvicinato che ezechiele ebbe con un UFO (unknown flying object).
Certo ci sembrerà strano che la bibbia parli di extraterrestri  nella  che looked, and, behold, a stormy wind came out of the north, a great cloud, with a fire flashing up, so that a brightness was round about it; and out of the midst as the color of electrum, out of the midst of the fire. 
And out of the midst came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance: they had the likeness of a man. 
And every one had four faces, and every one of them had four wings. 
And their feet were straight feet; and the sole of their feet was like the sole of a calf’s foot; and they sparkled like the color of burnished brass. And they had the hands of a man under their wings on their four sides; and as for the faces and wings of them four. Their wings were joined one to another; they turned not when they went; they went every one straight forward..."

Figueres is about 40km from Girona and it's the birthplace of Salvador Dalì, my favourite surrealist artist and house of his museum "Teatre-Museu Gala Salvador Dalì".

When I arrived In figueres was morning and after I found the hotel I went to give a quick look to the museum but just from outside because I was too tired to go in.

The thing I will always remember and that has been always the same even for my next trip to Figueres two year after is the magic of surrealism that I could feel around me.

It was everywhere, in the air, on the ground, in the sky, the clouds were in constant metamorphosis, I could almost ear the buildings murmuring and the people around me were also part of that surreal atmosphere...

While I was walking to get to the museum I could feel its magnetic recall.
The museum is situated in a higher position respect to the town, it is like the castle of the King who protects his people.

I would have thousands and thousands of words to spend about that magic place but I will do it in another post.


 

After seeing it from outside I went back to the hotel to sleep a couple of hours, I think was lunch time and I am not sure if I got some food or not.

Back then the opening hours of the museum was 9am to 7:15pm so I made sure to get back atleast three or four hourse before the closing time.
I am not sure what time I got there in the afternoon but it was enought to see everything, well enough for a normal person because I could spend a full day in there...

I recommend everyone to go and visit it, it is worth it.
After my visit I went for a walk to see a bit of Figueres and even to find a supermarket because I remember I was very thirsty and I needed to eat something.

Back to the hotel to get a good sleep, the morning after I had to go back to Girona.

 

I went to Girona by train from Figueres railway "renfe Media Distancia", very fast and clean train and the trip was not very long.

It was a nice and warm sunny day, Girona is a nice city and didn't look very busy. I liked that medieval atmosphere of the city
Very characteristic the colorful houses along the river.
I had a great day in Girona walking around all day taking pictures. The thing I like the most of having a "solo" trip is that I can do whatever I want, go wherever I want, eat if I want to, stop if I want to, it is freedom.

With this I am not saying that traveling with a partner or a friend or a group of friends is not good, it is just different.

At 8pm I had my flight to Paris. I took the bus from Girona and I arrived at the airport in the afternoon, I remember was still sunny and I had a bit of time to rest before to leave.
