Tweet So, let's see... I write for a Spanish magazine and the other day I sent an article (the fist of many, I hope) for an upcoming Czech beer magazine. I've been interviewed for an article in a Norwegian magazine, for the new edition of Lonely Planet - Prague guidebook, and also for the Spanish service of Czech Radio. What am I missing? Oh yeah, TV!
Clase Turista is a travel show on an Argentine TV channel. It's got a nice twist, instead of sending a camera and a celebrity to show not much more than the postcards of a given city, they contact Argentines that live there and tour it with them, seeing it through their eyes while talking about their lives.
One of the hosts for the Prague episode was me, and here you have it (in Spanish, sorry).
Of course, not everything was about beer. We shot the whole day and the experience was for me very interesting and a lot of fun. The most impressive thing, however, was the response from people. The show aired last Wednesday, late in the evening in Argentina, and when I turned the PC at 6:30AM on Thursday the Spanish version of the blog had received over 2700 hits, and would get another 1000 or so during the rest of the day. I also received dozens of e-mails, comments and messages, which are still coming (and I'm slowly answering). Each and everyone of them was great, full of compliments, positive energy. I was left overwhelmed and very happy. It was just an amazing experience, very hard to describe.
But I haven't had enough. Tomorrow I'm off to Humpolec with a team of an upcoming TV Show for a Czech channel. We will shoot at Pivovar Bernard and I will be the "guest expert". Yeah, you've read well, me as guest expert on a Czech TV show about beer. Incredible, and I'm so looking forward to it.
