    I spent all sunday at home working on my urban project and also re-writing a couple of articles i have on the drawer that i want to finish soon....

    it was a lovely afternoon, which i had to see thru my room window:

    So, this term besides all the bibliography suggested by the seminars tutors, i build my own list (a list in constant construction, so feel free to recomend anything interesting)... mainly this list is oriented to the kind of stuff i've been interested the last 6 months... but maybe this orientation will change, im not actually expecting to read all, but who knows, anyways, here is it:
