Thanks, Lucys!
So, they're going to a favela? Well, I would say that is a radical sport indeed, for a Crown Princely couple, don't you think?...
Then, they'll certainly have a mega-security operation around them...
Do you know what's the favela they're going to visit in Brazil?

Although that isn't the image spread abroad, the favelas in Brazil are very keen of foreign visits. It is a dangerous place indeed, but there is a code (at least in Rio's favelas), that you are not supposed to do anything wrong while inside the community or you may suffer the punishment by the Chief (the lead drug dealer).

Nowadays, I feel that people are more secure inside a favela than outside of it.

A little tale I share with you to exemplify it. Do you know that movie "City of God"? The favela is just a couple of miles away from my house (maybe less) and I once worked inside the favela. One time, there were a couple of girls that shoplifted a supermarket and they were severely punished by the Chief.

So, I guess that Felipe and Letizia will be pretty safe during their visit.

Thanks, Anna, for the explanation!
I guess I somehow was thinking of Rubem Fonseca's tales, when I painted the above draw! :p
Yes, I've heard of that conduct code before. When I was in college, I teacher of mine, who flies to Brazil almost every month, told us there's a very warm environment around all the people who visit the Escolas de Samba, and that the Chiefs of the favelas kind of assure nothing wrong would happen to everyone there! I remember we all were very surprised by his joyous description of his own visit to a poor quarter of Rio de Janeiro

Some articles, from Diez Minutos:

The funeral in Morella:

http://www.especialeshf.com/bodareal/noticias/noticia135.htm

Felipe and Letizia arrived precisely at the funerals office. Dressed in plain mourning and with pain printted in their faces, they presided over the ceremony in front of the closer relatives. The Princess of Asturias was looked particularly affected, with her glanced eyes with tears. The face of the Prince also reflected a great sadness, but he was very affectionate with all the relatives and personally took care of all the relatives he could, offering his consolation words and supportive hugs to them.



Skiing at the slopes:

http://www.especialeshf.com/bodareal/noticias/noticia136.htm

The future Queen demonstrated much easier with the skiis and offered the most beautiful of her smiles to the cameras, that could catch their face without maquillaje, showing her very natural image. The improvement of the journalist in the snow tracks must be related to her very desire to share all her husband’s likings, as she’s found a superb teacher in Don Felipe.



Visit to Santa Maríade Vallbona monastery :

http://www.especialeshf.com/bodareal/noticias/noticia137.htm

The Princess has told the journalists the warm greetings of the abbess, Ana Maria Camprubí: "she has received me saying that she did not know how to greet a Princess, but I believe that, with such warm hug that she has given me, it has been sufficient".

They're both fashionable women, wearing the very last trends... no surprise that they use the same pieces/colours/cuts; after all, fashion is all about using the same things, in the same season...

This is what i think too, i said that about the comparaison made holamagazine for similarities between rania and letizia!

Hi Marezdote!

"Favela" is the Portuguese word used in Brazil to call upon a very poor quarter of such big cities as Rio de Janeiro. Poor people start with the construction of their poor houses, and soon a whole quarter develops in very degraded environment, normally controlled by drug dealers. There are daily fights between the various gangsters, what makes the favela a dangerous place to live in, but most families who are forced to live there are honest and hard working people, who just have not the opportunity to live in a more pleasant place.

The Princes enjoy a day of ski in Candanchú today

Los Príncipes disfrutan hoy de una jornada de esquí en Candanchú
Los Príncipes de Asturias llegaron ayer, pasadas las ocho y media de la tarde, a la estación invernal de Candanchú para disfrutar del deporte de la nieve durante este fin de semana

Se han alojado en el hotel Edelweiss y en principio, se prevé que su estancia se prolongue hasta mañana domingo. Don Felipe y Doña Letizia viajaron en AVE de Madrid hasta Zaragoza. Posteriormente, se dirigieron en coche particular, conducido por el Príncipe, hasta la estación de Candanchú.

HUESCA.- La pareja tenía programado acudir a las pistas hoy, entre las nueve y las diez de la mañana, para practicar el deporte blanco. Una afición que el heredero de la Corona española ya tenía antes de casarse y que parece haberle contagiado a su esposa puesto que ya siendo novios, la pareja acudió al mismo centro invernal, a finales del mes de febrero del año pasado, donde la Princesa de Asturias hizo sus primeros pinitos en el mundo del esquí alpino. En esa ocasión, el director del centro invernal, Eduardo Roldán, acompañó a la pareja en su visita a la estación y hoy con toda probabilidad hará lo propio. Y es que la Casa Real mantiene una buena relación con el responsable de Candanchú.

El año pasado, antes de acudir a la estación altoaragonesa, la Princesa visitó Baqueira Beret, en Cataluña. Durante su estancia, Eduardo Roldán impartió a Doña Letizia un curso intensivo para introducirla en el esquí alpino. Hoy quizá la Princesa de Asturias demuestre que incluso ha mejorado su habilidad con los esquís y se atreva a deslizarse por pistas que entrañen una cierta complicación.

Según el parte meteorológico facilitado por la estación, hoy sábado y mañana domingo, el cielo estará nuboso y se podrán producir precipitaciones débiles. Los vientos soplarán flojos.

Don Felipe y doña Letizia llegaron ayer por la noche al hotel donde se hospedan. Dos primos del Príncipe, hijos de la Infanta doña Pilar, acompañan a la pareja.

From Elmundo:
The Princes of Asturias have gone to the station of Candanchú (Huesca), where they enjoyed a day of ski in company of two cousins of Don Felipe and the director of the winter center, Eduardo Roldán, the ski teacher of the ex- journalist. The Princes descended all the tracks from the station, like the Tuca, Rinconada, Tobazo or Aludes, according to the information given by the director of the winter center, who assured that Letizia "has improved very much".

Los Príncipes de Asturias esquían en Candanchú

Don Felipe y Doña Letizia han dedicado la jornada de este sábado a la práctica del esquí. Tal y como hicieron durante un fin de semana el año pasado, los Príncipes de Asturias han elegido la estación aragonesa de Candanchú para realizar algunos descensos.

Don Felipe y Doña Letizia con Eduardo Roldán, instructor de esquí de la Princesa


Huesca.- A las 11,00 de la mañana del sábado los esquiadores que se encontraban en los alrededores de la oficina central de Candanchú se han visto sorprendidos por la presencia de Letizia Ortiz y Felipe de Borbón en las instalaciones de la estación invernal. Junto a ellos, un revuelo de seguridad, guardaespaldas y prensa poco usual.

Los Príncipes de Asturias han dedicado este fin de semana a la práctica del esquí en el Pirineo Aragonés y lo han hecho en el centro de nieve que dirige Eduardo Roldán, profesor en este deporte de doña Letizia. Precisamente fue aquí donde el año pasado la princesa recibió alguna de las primeras clases de esquí, en un viaje que realizaron la última semana de febrero.

En esta ocasión, la pareja se ha trasladado desde Madrid hasta Zaragoza en el AVE. Desde allí y en vehículo propio, los Príncipes hicieron viaje para llegar el viernes por la noche a un hotel de la estación pirenaica oscense. Rompiendo lo que viene siendo costumbre hasta ahora, Felipe y Letizia han decidido llegar a las oficinas de Candanchú andando desde su hotel, y no en coche como suelen hacer los miembros de la Casa Real que han esquiado en el centro invernal.

Saludados por numerosos curiosos, que no han querido perder la oportunidad de hacer algunas fotos, los Príncipes de Asturias han comenzado su jornada de esquí, acompañados en todo momento por Eduardo Roldán.

Thanks for the pictures. It seems they had a good time. My favorite ones are when they're on the ski lift.
