ABOUT GUELYLAND

"One of the smallest , independent kingdoms in the ciberuniverse. Nothing fancy. Population? Just me, myself and my jaguars, my movies and my books (and, at this very moment, YOU). Hided and secret like Skull Island or Opar, the ancients in Guelyland use to read the scrools of a minor god called Voor-Hes.
Most of the treasures of Guelyland are made of paper, plastic and vinyl.Guelyland dreams with expanding in deep more then in surface. The music of Nik Kershaw has been heard here. There are apes, lots of apes in Guelyland. Woody Allen and Bob Hope visit it quite often. Here we love books (the Kingdoms Library is both celebrated and secret) Here we are atheists but very tolerant and think of god a bit too often and much. Guelyland is, the stuff my dreams are made of..."

TAUMATAWHAKATANGIHANGAKOAUAUOTAMATEATURIPUKAPAPIKIMAUNGAHORONUKUPOKAIWHENUAKITANATAHU


This picture is from the album "El más y el menos"(from 1977 and soon I'll write about the whole thing) has always been for me an odd example of romanticism. Yes, is just the name of a little place "away from everywhere". But, is the longest name of in the world!. Since this album has so many errors I decided it to check it out and yes, it was true.

After a brief search i found a more modern picture of the same sign and even a photo from a different one from 2006.

This 85 letters name belongs to a hill somewhere in the south of Hawke Bay in New Zeland. I'm thinking about how you call people that eventually could be born in that place.
By the way the translation of the sign is:
"The place where Tamatea, the man with the big knees, who slid, climbed and swalloed mountains, known as landeater, played his flute to his loved one".
That's love , man!
