- Tempus fugit (Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) is a Latin phrase, usually translated into English as “time flies”. The expression comes from line 284 of book 3 of Virgil’s Georgics, where it appears as fugitinreparabile tempus: “it escapes, irretrievable time”. The phrase is used in both its Latin and English forms as a proverb that “time’s a-wasting”. Tempus fugit, however, is typically employed as an admonition against sloth and procrastination (cf. carpe diem) rather than a motto in favor of licentiousness (cf. “gather ye rosebuds while ye may”); the English form is often merely descriptive: “time flies like the wind”, “time flies when you’re having fun”.
- ¨Las Marías¨ (Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) is the name by which the couple formed by the sisters Maruxa and Coralia Fandiño Ricart were known in Santiago de Compostela. The two sisters became popular characters of the city because they made a daily walk through the Zona Vella (old town), during the fifties and sixties, dressed and made up in an eccentric manner, while flirting with young university students.This walk through the park took place around two o’clock in the afternoon, time when most students went to eat and, therefore, when there was more activity in the streets of downtown Santiago. It was quite an event because of the contrast between the gray atmosphere that reigned in Spain during Franco’s dictatorship.
