 French Epiphany Cake

Galette crown_by yuichi.sakuraba 
Little History of the "Epiphany Cake" Tradition
 
 
The French galette des rois is a round pasty with a charm hidden inside. It is traditionally eaten in France on Epiphany Day (January 6th) and around that date. The recipe has evolved during the past centuries and many countries now have an “Epiphany Cake”, whether they call it gateau des rois, King’s Cake, roscon de Reyes, Bolo Rei or Tortell.
 
Here is the story of that cake.
 
 
Epiphany Day:
 
Epiphany Day (revelation, in Greece) is a Christian holiday celebrating the presentation of Infant Jesus to the Three wise men, Jesus’ baptism and the Wedding at Cana. Until the 4th century it also was the day celebrating the Birth of Jesus.
 
In almost all the Roman Catholic countries, the Nativity celebrations have been moved to December 25th, and are known as Christmas Day, except in Armenia where it has remained on January 6th. In Spain and many Latin American countries, you give presents to the people you love on January 6th, which is very often a holiday. It reminds people of the arrival of the Three wise men in Bethlehem to give presents to the Christ.

 6,000 swimming-pools in one

San Alfonso del Mar 
Go to Chile and sail on the biggest pool in the world
 
Sailing on a swimming-pool, i am not kidding, it is possible. In the town of Algarrobo, Chile, the sea resort San Alfonso del Mar was built with a 7.7 hectare swimming-pool, which is the size of about 6,000 regular swimming-pools!
 
The huge resort is located in Southwest Chile and is made of several pyramidal buildings set in circular arcs to limit the wind effects, as the Chilean coast is rather cool and windy. The view from the buildings is amazing, as the windows overlook the pool and Pacific Ocean, separated by a spit of sand.
 
Contrary to what one might think, the resort is not a hotel, the apartments (you can’t rent rooms) are big, modern, and comfy; they can be rented or bought. Nothing annoying exce...
