Here are 7 pictures of European trucks whose trailers are decorated to look like the sides are missing and the products they are hauling  are painted on the sides and back. The first one is  of a  bottle of beer and looks so real, like it is coming out the side of the trailer..

The second is of canvas tote bag.

The third is of Pepsi cases and they are all stacked on the ceiling, and the bottom of the trailer is empty.

The fourth is of another truck with the windshield facing the back and there has been a driver painted in the driver's seat looking back  over his shoulder to appear like he is driving backwards. (Now this one is just plain scary, even when the German reads  'On the  wrong way?')

The  fifth one is of an aquarium with fish swimming in it.

The sixth one is of a bookshelf with books lined up in it and a post-it-note with an advertisement on it, probably for the company that sells the books.

The last one is for Pringles-Hot & Spicy. The 'inside' of the trailer has the appearance of having been through a fire.

'When someone shares something of value with you, and you benefit from it, you have a moral obligation to share it with others.

news mexican chefCasa de Sierra Nevada by Orient-Express, a luxury boutique hotel and cooking school in the heart of historic San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, has appointed Felipe Ramirez Gorosica as  Executive Chef to oversee the hotel’s restaurants, Andanza and Parque as well as its cooking school, Sazón.

Ramirez’s inspiration comes from his ancestors’ techniques of traditional Mexican cuisine: “the history and culture of my ancestors is what drives me to excel and bring authentic Mexican flavors to  avant-garde molecular gastronomy," said Ramirez. 

Originally from Muxupip, Mexico, Ramirez began his career at the age of 19 in the industry of Culinary Tourism. His first forays were the Hyatt Hotels in Cancun and the Hotel Fiesta Americana Condesa. In 2004, Ramirez was recognized in the “El Joven Chef Mexicano” competition in Mexico City winning awards in two categories: "The Best Cook for Mexican Cuisine” and "The Best in knowledge of Mexican Cooking Techniques”.  

With the support of this recognition, Felipe was offered the opportunity to travel to Europe to acquire more knowledge, working in the famous restaurant "El Bulli" by Ferran Adrià in Roses, Girona, Spain. Later, he worked as Sous Chef with the renowned and famous chef Patricia Quintana in the Grand Aqua Hotel Guest group and its restaurant "The 7" allowing him to strengthen his skills and further improve his knowledge of Mexican cuisine.  

Ramirez was previously at Maroma Resort and Spa by Orient-Express, as Chef de Cuisine for the resort’s three restaurants, El Restaurante, El Sol and Cilantro.

The boutique hotel of Casa De Sierra Nevada is a mixture of 16th to 18th century Spanish colonial buildings, located one and one-half blocks from the cathedral and main city square of San Miguel de Allende. Its 37 rooms and suites are spread amongst six Colonial mansions, including  Casa del Parque, a fort in the 17th century and later a customs house catering to the silver trade; and Casa Principal, the former residence of San Miguel de Allende’s Archbishop in 1580 and an official historical landmark. In December of 2008 six new suites were unveiled in a new house, Casa de Las Palmas.
