Thank you MODS and Welcome to all International Members

Thank you Joaquin,

This place will be great, feel free to speak in your own language and find technical help hard to translate in English; also it will be a great way to look up members all over the place and plan meets abroad or see what happens in different countries .


So let me be the first to say:

Welkome Marc, geniet van de macht!

I hope I didn't say anything bad in Dutch, I used a free translator.

I coalesce the vapor of human experience into a viable and logical comprehenshion.

No tengas pena. Ese es, precisamente, parte del propósito de esta sección/foro.

Don't be shy or bashful about posting in less-than-perfect English. That's what this International Forum is for.

¡Fantástico! ¡Te felicito!

Por si cualquier cosa, mis primos y mi tía paterna viven allá en Barcelona desde que Fidel nos obligó a irnos de Cuba a principios de los años 60.

Gracias Joaquin!. Tú has estado por allá? alguna recomendación?. Yo estuve en Barcelona en el '94, pero imagínate que ya ni me acuerdo de qué es un "must see/do" aparte de visitar La Rambla y La Sagrada Familia.

Qué se va a hacer, a comer tapas cómo si no hubiera mañana.

Tras no haber estado por allá desde el año 1980, mi hijo y yo fuimos el año pasado.

Como fanático que soy del arte loco de los Catalanes, vimos todos los sitios creados por Antonio Gaudí. El más famoso, por supuesto, es La Sagrada Familia, pero también vimos la Casa Batlló, Casa Milà/La Pedrera, el exterior de la Casa Vicens y el Palacio Güell y el Parque Güell.

También como super-fanático que soy de Salvador Dalí, fuí tanto a su casa natal, como a su museo y al palacio de su esposa Gala. Como estos están fuera de Barcelona (en la provincia de Gerona), casi seguro te resulte complicado visitarlos.

Volviendo a Barcelona, Monjuïc y el Tibidabo también son interesantes (en el Tibidabo hay un parque de diversiones si es que vas a viajar con los niños). Joan Miró y Pablo Picasso son otros 2 artistas que tienen museos en Barcelona, y me imagino que a tu esposa le atraiga el MareMagnum, que es algo por el estilo del Bayside de Miami.

Hablando de las Ramblas: vale la pena, pero mucho ojo con los carteristas, los que intentan venderte "chocolate" (que resulta ser hashish) y las chicas despampanantes que luego resultan tener una voz sumamente masculina...

si vas de crucero y paras en barcelona centrate en barcelona, pero si puedes hacerte una escapada a madrid, acaban de ampliar el museo Reina Sofia con un ala nueva. en este museo encontrarás la mayor y mejor coleccion de arte clasico español

otro sitio que os puede interesar, es bilbao, con el Guggenheim q tambien tiene una gran coleccion de arte moderno

yo soy de galicia, al noroeste, somos el flequillo de la peninsula ibérica. por cierto yo tengo un is q vosotros no teneis (por ahora), un IS220d SPORT, sí, diesel, 177 cv y 400Nm entre las 2000 y las 2600rpms

if you go to barcelona, maybe, if you have time, you can go to madrid, recently, the Reina Sofia Museum has been remodelated and increased with a new block. this museum has the greatest classic spanish art of the world

there's another great museum in bilbao, the Guggenheim. it has another great modern art collection.

i'm from a place of spain called Galicia that it's on the northwest of spain.

i must say, that i have an IS that it is not selled in usa, it is an IS 220d SPORT, with a diesel engine with 177hp and 400Nm (i don't remeber the unit you use for the torque) between 2000-2600rpms

we've got our pwn lexus forum, it is called ClubLexus.eu - LexusFaq.com* [Foro Usuari@s Lexus España]. obiously you are welcome on it

Bienvenido, gizzmo.

Los 400Nm de torque equivalen a 295 lb/ft, según esta tabla de conversión:
Unit Converter

Hay otras tablas por el estilo de esas en el foro que llamamos "The Garage", que es para hablar de autos que no son el Lexus IS:
