Interview with writer Stephen Steinberg

We were told at the reception that an American writer from Seattle called Stephen Steinberg, who was working in his new book, was coming to stay at Hotel Sauce for two weeks. We started imagining why he was here: “Maybe he´s writing an epic novel about the battles between Arabs and the kingdom of Castilla”, Giuseppe said. “Or a love story between a Muslim king and a Christian princess full of secret meetings in fancy castles”, Saray said.

We decided to look for hints on the internet. And we discovered that he came to Zaragoza to write… about Baseball! What is an American baseball writer doing in Zaragoza? We absolutely needed to speak with him and find out!


Interview with Levy Sekgapane: winner of the Montserrat Caballé Singing competition

The ones who were there say that when Montserrat Caballé heard him sing, she was thrilled. He had just won the first prize at the Hans Belvedere International Competition in Amsterdam in August-as well as all competitions in South Africa, his native country- and he definitely proved to be the young opera promise of the moment by winning as well the Montserrat Caballé International Competition in Zaragoza. And he is just 25 years old.


Benidorm or burst: Interview with the pig’s drivers

I was walking back to the hotel reception after accompanying a host to the Sabinas El Pilar Apartments when I saw a strange pink vehicle parked right in front of the hotel, with many people around it taking pictures. As I approached, to my surprise, I noticed that the car was the shape of a pig! Instead of asking its owners if they were coming to the hotel and helping them with their luggage, as we normally would do, I couldn’t help but ask them: “Why are you driving a pig?” David Hillson, David Hillson Jr, Philip Hillson and Carlos Nighlugal (two brothers, their father and a friend) explained that they were participating in the sixth annual Benidorm or Bust Rally along with more than 200 other creative automobiles.


Historical Reenactment in Zaragoza: Interview with Bartolomiej Wielocha

Bartolomiej Wielocha (Warsaw, 30) is a construction engineer, but a few weeks ago he became the protector of the Polish army flag bearer, which fought on the French side of the battle of Zaragoza during the Peninsular War.

Napoleon had conquered Poland and, as he did with other conquered nations, he forced the military elite to join the French ranks on other fronts in Europe. Two centuries later, a group of historical re-enactors of the nineteenth century Polish army crossed Europe by bus for two days with Zaragoza as their destination. They stayed at the Sauce Hotel, located a few dozen meters from the Coso, where they were once overrun by the Zaragoza resistance.
