a diamond on the dustbin – (en/es)

There are few websites where you can spend hours dreaming and, at the same time, learning something. They resemble diamonds: rare and, once found, they are forever. This is one of them: http://www.trekearth.com
In my bookmarks section I believe it’s the only one that has survived through several computer changes, recoveries and losses of information in general. And perhaps its most brilliant feature is that it’s made by people like you and me. With one nuance: they are people trying to excel themselves, through the travel photography.
This is clearly reflected in the unusual quality of the photos, the complete technical information of each picture and the constructive criticism of the observers.
It is, moreover, a rare site in the sense that you could find comments in many languages, –certainly images need no translation– which says a lot about the human quality of the people involved in it. In few virtual places –or real ones– you would find a Frenchman praising the work of an American, for instance.
In short: a pleasure for the senses, and both sides of the brain. A rarity, at a time of mere copy and paste.
Thanks Trekearth for taking away so many hours of my sleep, while dreaming.
Son escasas las páginas en Internet en las que puedas pasarte las horas soñando y, al mismo tiempo, aprendiendo algo. Se asemejan a los diamantes: raros y, una vez encontrados, para siempre. Esta es una de ellas: http://www.trekearth.com
En mi sección de favoritos creo que es la única que ha sobrevivido a través de varios cambios de ordenador, reinstalaciones y pérdidas de información en general. Y tal vez su más brillante característica es que está hecha por gente como tú y como yo. Con un matiz: es gente que trata de superarse a si misma, a través de la fotografía de viajes.
Esto queda claramente reflejado en la inusitada calidad de las tomas, la completa información técnica de las mismas y la crítica constructiva de los observadores.
Es, por otra parte, una rara pagina, en el sentido en que te encontraras en ella comentarios en muchos idiomas –ciertamente las imágenes no necesitan traducción–, lo que dice mucho de la calidad humana de la gente que participa en ella. En pocos sitios virtuales –o reales– te encontraras a un francés elogiando el trabajo de un americano, por poner un ejemplo.
En resumen: un placer para los sentidos, y ambas partes del cerebro. Una rareza en los tiempos de copiar y pegar.
Gracias Trekearth por hacerme perder tantas horas de sueño, soñando despierto.

About Dugutigui

In the “Diula” language in Mali, the term « dugutigui » (chief of the village), literally translated, means: «owner of the village»; «dugu» means village and «tigui», owner. Probably the term is the result of the contraction of «dugu kuntigui» (literally: chief of the village).
