Hello, my name is Liudmila. I was born in Lithuania, have family roots in Russia, but now I live in Norway:) I can't tell anything astonishing about myself... I'm not registered in the Guinness Book of Records, haven't invented the bicycle and wasn't elected as a president :D I'm an ordirary person with simple hobbies - love travelling, reading books, meeting my friends, I just love life as it is, with all advantages and disadvantages. I just have an interesting hobby - I collect bookmarks :) I'm a passionate bookmark collector and hope to find more collectors, exchange bookmarks with them, show my collection to others and have a look at other collections :) You can contact me, if you're interested in bookmark exchange :) Hope to find friends from all over the world :)

Picasso Museum in Barcelona
The history of the Museu Picasso is a tribute to the artist’s express desire to leave his mark on Barcelona. That wish was materialised by the contribution of Jaume Sabartés, his close friend ever since their youth and personal secretary from 1935 onwards, as it was Sabartés who donated his own personal collection of Picasso paintings to the city of Barcelona. In this way, he became the driving force behind the creation of a Museu Picasso in Barcelona, the first anywhere in the world and the only one created while Picasso was still alive.
