Dear participant,
Below you will find the program of the European Social Networks Conference 2014 in Barcelona
and practical information concerning accommodation, transport, places to eat, things to do etc.
In the appendix, you will find a number of maps of the university campus to help you find your
way. Please check the program later on for the precise location of the presentations. This
program may be subject to change - it will be updated and last-minute changes will be
announced on site. Please check our conference website for the latest
Some things you should know:
 Like at the Sunbelt conferences, participants often hop sessions to catch papers of interest - this
is fully accepted. Consequently, all presentations are to start and stop at the intended times.
 Some sessions are organized; others are not. In the latter case, the last presenter is chair. Please
check the program - it might be you! Session chairs are responsible for keeping time...
 If you present, please load your presentation on the desktop computer before your session
starts. If you need your own laptop, connecting it will be in your presentation time.
 If you present a poster, please be present on site 10 minutes before the session starts.
If you have any questions, please seek out the organizers or assistants (recognizable by the
conference t-shirts they wear). They will be happy to help you.
We are happy to hosting you in Barcelona! Best wishes,
The conference organizers,

José Luis Molina and Miranda Lubbers

Practical information

Practical information

Please note that the campus of the Autonomous University of Barcelona is about 45 minutes
of traveling away from the city center (35 min by train and 5-10 min walk). It is strongly
recommended to book an accommodation on the University campus, either in Hotel Campus
( or in the apartments. Both are relatively cheap (about €60
per night for two persons, and €8 for breakfast) and about 15 minutes' walk to the place where
the conference will be held. Breakfast for both places is provided in the same room. In case
you want to share an apartment on the campus with other participants, we suggest to use this
Doodle: Please note that the apartments provide linen
and towels but no shampoo or soap. The kitchen has a fridge and a microwave. A small
supermarket is nearby - in case you forgot to bring soap or shampoo.
If you wish to stay in the center of Barcelona, it may be a good idea to choose a hotel close to
the Catalonia Square ("Plaça Catalunya"), to minimize travel time. We propose Hostal Grau,>overview.html. The hotel can be booked online (from
€110 per night, breakfast excluded).
If you want to find a hotel between the two places, you can check the train travel here: and choose one village and try to
find a hotel near the station. One example: San Cugat del Vallés is one of the largest and most
beautiful villages located between Barcelona and the university campus. The S2 line goes to
the UAB (10 min) and to the Plaça Catalunya (25min). Here are two hotels you could check: and Hotel AS Hoteles
Bellaterra may be geographically close to the UAB, but there is no connection by public
transport , so please check other options.




The airport is located in El Prat de Llobregat, 18 km outside Barcelona. From the airport you
will have to take the bus, or the train to get into the centre of Barcelona and then change to
get a different train out to the UAB. Alternatively you can take a taxi directly from the airport.

Option A - By taxi from the airport to the UAB
This is the most expensive, quickest and easiest way to get to the UAB. Official black and
yellow taxis wait in the ranks at the exits of both terminals at the airport.
• The journey takes 30-40 minutes but is dependent on the traffic and will cost 50-60€. The
personnel in the hotel lobby and the apartments can arrange a taxi back to the airport for you.
• There are two types of fare: T1 is applied at night and is more expensive; T2 is applied on
weekdays from 07:00 to 21:00.



Option B1: By bus
(STEP1 - from the airport to Barcelona city center)
There are several bus lines that run between Barcelona and the airport. However, the easiest
way to get to Barcelona is by taking the Aerobús (A1 to/from Terminal 1, or A2 to/from
Terminal 2). There are stops outside both airport terminals and the final destination is Plaça
Catalunya, located in the centre of Barcelona.
The Aerobuses are light and dark blue and have 'Aerobús' written
down the side. You can buy the ticket from the staff at the bus stops
(payment in cash or by credit card), at the automatic sales machines
(payment by credit card) or by paying the bus driver (cash only).
From Plaça Catalunya you will have to change to the train to get to the
UAB (see section on Trains from Plaça Catalunya to the UAB and map)
Aerobús timetable:

Terminal T1 (Airport) - Pl. Catalunya
From 05.35 h to 07.30 h every 10 min
From 07.30 h to 22.25 h every 5 min
From 22.25 h to 01.05 h every 10 min
Pl. Catalunya (Barcelona) - Terminal T1
From 05.00 h to 06.50 h every 10 min
From 06.50 h to 21.45 h every 5 min
From 21.45 h to 00.30 h every 10 min

Terminal T2 (Airport) - Pl. Catalunya
From 06.00 h to 07.00 h every 20 min
From 07.00 h to 23.00 h every 10 min
From 23.00 h to 01.00 h every 20 min
Pl. Catalunya (Barcelona) - Terminal T2
From 05.30 h to 06.50 h every 20 min
From 06.50 h to 22.20 h every 10 min
From 22.20 h to 00.30 h every 20 min
The service operates 365 days a year, always with the same schedule and takes approximately
35 minutes. Prices: One way - 5.90€; Return – 10.20€
(For further information:
NOTE: You can find the Aerobús stop directly outside the enormous El Corte Ingles department
store on one side of the Plaça Catalunya.
On your return, please note that there are two separate queues - one for the Aerobús (A1) to
Terminal 1 and another for the Aerobús (A2) to Terminal 2. The Aerobús queue for Terminal 1
is located towards the front of the bus stop if you are facing away from the Ramblas. The
queue for the Aerobús to Terminal 2 is behind this. At busy times there is a member of staff at
the stop who can help you and give you directions.


Option B2: By train
(STEP 1 - from the airport to Barcelona City Centre via SANTS station)
The train station is located in Terminal 2 of the airport. If you
arrive in Terminal 1, you will first have to catch the free shuttle
bus to the station in Terminal 2 (located across the road/sky bridge
from Terminal 2B). These buses "Bustransit T1-T2" are green, and run
every 6-7 minutes (at night 20-25 min). The journey between the
terminals takes up to 10 minutes.The RENFE train station is just outside Terminal 2.
 Buy a ticket (see below) and remember to keep it.
 Take the train to Barcelona (Line R2). These are the only ones that come to and from
the airport. Trains depart every 30 minutes.
 Get off at the Barcelona Sants station (10-15 min. - arriving at platform 13 or 14).
 Now you need to change to the second train. When you get off the train you need to
go up into the main concourse and find platform 8. You can use the same ticket to exit
the first concourse and enter the second. From here you can catch any train; get off at
the next stop, Plaça Catalunya (approx. 5 minutes) and exit the station to the street
 When you arrive in Plaça Catalunya and you wish to continue your trip to the UAB, you
should leave this train station and walk to the Ferrocarrils (FGC) train to the UAB (see
section Trains from Plaça Catalunya to the UAB (Ferrocarrils).
Price: A single train ticket from the airport to Plaça Catalunya should cost around 2.15€.
However, if you are travelling in a group or you wish to go into Barcelona city centre on other
days, a more convenient and possibly cheaper alternative is to buy a T-10 combined ticket (see
section on the T-10 ticket, below).
RENFE timetable:
From Barcelona Airport: The first train leaves the airport at 05:13 in the morning and the last
train leaves the airport at 23:44 at night.
From Estació Sants: The first train leaves Estació Sants at 05:13 in the morning and the last
train leaves “Sants” at 23:14 at night.



Options B1 and B2 (STEP 2): Trains from Plaça Catalunya to the UAB
The best way to get to the UAB from the city center of Barcelona is by train with the
"Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat de Catalunya" company (FGC), lines S2 and S55 . The
train departs from the underground station at the Catalonia Square, in Catalan the "Plaça
Catalunya" (at the very center of Barcelona; see Map 1). You can enter the station in front of
the Café Zurich, a large café at the corner of the Plaça Catalunya that is closest to the Rambla
(see Map 1 in the Appendix). Please note that there are two entries to underground stations
next to each other, one of them is for the FGC and the other for the metro. The correct one is
indicated with the logo and above the stairs, you will see S2 and S55 indicated among
the lines. The trip takes about 34-36 minutes, and a train departs every 10-15 minutes
(depending on the time of the day).

• Buy a ticket (see below). Please do NOT throw away your ticket too early, because you will
need it again to leave the train station when you arrive.
 Take Line S2 direction Sabadell or S55 direction Universitat Autònoma. Both go the
UAB. (Make sure you do not take the other trains departing from there.)
• If you are going to the Hotel Campus or the apartments on campus, get off at the Bellaterra
stop. From there it takes just a few minutes to walk to the hotel on a forested road. Just take
the direction "Vila Universitària" and follow the road, you will see the hotel to your left hand.
 If you are going directly to the conference venue, get off at the Universitat Autònoma
station (see UAB map in the appendix). From this station, the walk takes about 5-10 minutes
to the Faculty of Arts, where the conference will be held (see below for a description of the

For time tables and further information, please check the pdf file at or
the site (for the first box, select the lines "Barcelona-
Vallès", then select the "Plaça Catalunya" as departure stations and either "Universitat
Autònoma" or "Bellaterra" as arrival stations).
Price: A one-way ticket to the UAB costs €3.00 (it´s 2 zones). It is highly recommend to
purchase a T-10 combined ticket for 2 zones (€20,3) so you can make 10 trips. (see section on
the T-10 ticket, below).
For further information on FGC trains:
In the appendix, you will find the map of Plaça Catalunya and the location of the entrances to
the FGC and RENFE stations as well as the Aerobús stop (Map 1) and maps of the UAB campus.
Note that there is another train going to the University from the city center, from the national
railway company "Renfe", which brings you to the station called "Cerdanyola-Universitat".
However, we strongly recommend to take the FGC line instead.

T-10 ticket
The UAB Campus is outside the city of Barcelona, so you need a Zone 2 ticket.
If you buy a single ticket, it only can be used for one kind of transport; i.e. only for RENFE or
FGC or the Metro, etc. For example, you have to buy another ticket when transferring from the
airport train to the metro, and another for the FGC train to the UAB.
However, there is an integrated ticket, which allows you to use
all kinds of transport in the city of Barcelona (RENFE, FGC,
metro, bus and tram although NOT the Aerobús). The minimum
is a ten-journey ticket (T-10). To get to the UAB campus you
will have to buy a 2 Zone T-10 ticket (20.30 €). This T-10 ticket
can be used by more than one person, if travelling together.
Simply use the same ticket as many times as needed for passing the barrier for entering into
the train station
The T-10 ticket can be used on more than one means of transport and which is counted as a
single journey as long as the final change is within 1 hour and 30 minutes after you first frank
the ticket for that journey (or 1 hour and 15 minutes for 1 Zone). This means for example, you
can make changes at metro stops, then leave the metro and get on a bus to finish your journey
or vice versa BUT you cannot re-enter the metro once you have left it - this would count as
another journey. You should be able to take the RENFE train from the airport, change to the
Metro and then change again to the FGC train to the UAB all within the time limit, for the price
of a single journey.


If you plan on going into the centre of Barcelona various days, or you can share your ticket
with another person, this is the most economic way of travelling around.

Where to buy tickets (including the T10)
Train ticket vending machines can be found in both the airport station and the stations in
Barcelona city centre. There are five ticket machines in Barcelona Airport. If you have difficulty
using the machine, ask somebody wearing a high visibility jacket - there is normally somebody
manning the machines who will be able to help you.
You can pay at the machines with both cash (coins and notes
up to 20€) and credit/debit cards.
The languages available at machines are:
1. German
2. Spanish
3. Catalan
4. English
5. French

Note: It is possible to buy multiple tickets with one payment.



How to find your way on the campus...
...if you stay on campus
The route from the hotel to the conference will be indicated on site, but here is a description
that follows the blue route on Map 2 and 3 (the latter is more detailed): Leave the hotel, go
around the breakfast hall to the main street. Go to your right, and walk down the road parallel
to the student apartments. Before the roundabout, cross the street and continue your walk on
the smaller road until you are behind a white building. Either walk down the hill (around the
white building) or - if it´s later than 9am and especially if you wear high heals- enter the white
building (a library, indicated with 45/58 on map 4 and "Biblioteca de Comunicació" at Map 6)
and take the elevator down to the first floor, then leave the building on the other side. You are
now on a square, the "Plaça Cívica", with a farmacy and some shops on the left side and an
ATM on the other side (see photo below). Cross the square completely to the other end (keep
right at the other end), take the wooden ramp and continue your walk up hill (now change to
the red route on Map 4, starting at the Plaça Cívica). On your right hand side you will pass the
faculties of Sociology and Political Sciences, Psychology and if you´d continue Arts. Enter the
building of the conference venue at the sign of the "Facultat de Psicologia" (see Map 4, and the
picture below). If you arrive early, please know that you can get coffee from 8 am onwards by
continuing the road up hill, where you will find the bar/restaurant with the outside terrace on
your right hand (see Map 4/6/7).

Right: Plaça Cívica; Left: Side entrance of the Faculty

... if you do not stay on campus
Once you have arrived by train at the Universitat Autònoma station, follow the crowd leaving
the train station until you arrive on a large square with some shops, the "Plaça Cívica". Cross
the square diagonally to your left, take the wooden ramp and continue your walk up hill. On
your right hand side you will pass the faculties of Sociology and Political Sciences, Psychology
and -if you´d continue- Arts (see the red route on Map 4). Enter the building at your right when
you see the sign of the "Facultat de Psicologia" (see the picture above). If you arrive early, you
can continue the road up hill, where you will find the bar/restaurant with the outside terrace


on your right hand as well, to take a relaxing cup of coffee (see Map 4/6/7; coffee from 8 am
Where to eat?
Eating on and around the university campus
On the campus, there are a few places where you can enjoy a meal. Here we give you more
detailed information about the different options so that you can choose whatever you like
most. Most of the catering areas are open from 8am to 7.30pm.
 Faculty of Philosophy and Arts and Faculty of Psychology - bar (indicated as 2 on map
7). It is the nearest place from the conference rooms where you can have breakfast
and lunch, coffee and tea and other drinks. They serve daily menus (and sometimes
pizzas) for about 7 euros, including dessert (between 12.45 and 15.00 - beer and wine
too). Sandwiches, pastries, coffee and tea, beer and other drinks can be bought all day
(note that at lunch time there is a separate queue for the menus and for the
sandwiches/coffee/tea). There are outdoor tables where the shadow is guaranteed.
 Faculty of Philosophy and Arts and Faculty of Psychology - restaurant (indicated as 3
on map 7). A bit hidden from the eye, you can find the entry to this small restaurant
within the bar, close to the exit to the terrace. Locals refer to this restaurant as “la
bonita” (the nice one, in comparison to the bar of course..). Here you can have three-
course lunches with wine and good coffee for about 15-20 euro, but beware: it´s easily
filled. You can make reservations.
 Faculty of Science (indicated as 6 on Map 4). It is one of the largest restaurants on the
campus. It has two floors, and a bar (self-catering), a restaurant, and a pizzeria. They
offer a great variety of food (between 1 and 4 pm), sandwiches, pastries, coffee and
tea and other drinks. They also have places to sit outside.
 Restaurant "La Plaça" (indicated as 3 on Map 4). It is right at the center of the
campus, on La Plaça Cívica, which you will cross when you get off the train station. It is
cheaper than the others, and the quality of the food is similar. You can also take a beer
or a coffee outside while watching the plaza with the students (Location: Plaça Cívica).
 Bar-Frankfurt (indicated as 3 on Map 3). This is a proper bar. As the name suggests,
you can eat sausages, sandwiches and snacks there. It is also open at night and the
Hospitality Suite is here. (Location: Vila Universitaria, very close to the Hotel Campus)
 Bar of the Hotel Campus (indicated as 1 on Map 3). The hotel Campus has a small
menu to cater for their guests at night, so in case you stay at the hotel and you want to
dine in, you can…
 La Marmita (indicated as 1 on Map 3). This is a more formal restaurant located within
the Hotel Campus, which is open for lunch. You can find it in the same space as the
hotel bar.



Around the campus:
 Marcs (Bartomeu 21, Bellaterra - close to the Vila Universitaria; If you stay in hotel
Campus, you might like to go out for dinner without travelling all the way to Barcelona.
A nice ten-minutes walk through the village of Bellaterra (see Map 5) will lead you to
restaurant Marcs, which has an outside terrace that is lovely and relaxing on warm
summer evenings. Just take care when you walk back with a little alcohol clouding your
head, because cars sometimes pass by at great speed and there is no sidewalk for part
of the road…
 La Bolera (Sant Cugat del Vallés, opens daily except Sunday for lunch, Sant Cugat is just a few train stops away
from the campus (10 min). This restaurant serves great catalan, home-style food. It is a
bit more expensive but many international social networkers like it here. Think meat
and vegetables “a la brasa” (off the grill), pan con tomate, and nice wines.
 La Margotín (Sant Cugat del Vallés; Tues-Sat lunch 13.30 – 15.30, dinner 21.00 – 23.30, Also located in Sant Cugat. Swiss cheese
fondues and salads are the specialty here.
These are the easiest places to find, but for more information, or a map, you can check the

Eating in Barcelona
As you know Barcelona is a big city, and you can find all kinds of restaurants and bars to eat.
Nonetheless, there are a few places around the city centre that we would like to recommend
 Restaurant “La Flauta” (Carrer d’Aribau, 23, near Plaza Universitat): This modern
restaurant is a very traditional place for Spanish food, and recommended by many
colleagues. It is especially recommended for tapas, and the ham (“el jamón”) they
serve is excellent. The staff is very helpful and they have menus in English as well. For
reviews check: (note: it is a very busy
place at night, especially on Fridays and Saturdays, so it is recommended to arrive
between 8 pm and 9pm or if possible, to book a table in advance)
 Restaurant “Maitea” (Carrer de Casanova, 157; Pinchos, this
is a traditional Basque place. Maitea is located close to Plaza Universitat and a bit
further away from the touristic areas. It serves all kinds of crazy pinchos, the Basque
variation of tapas, and excellent wine and sangría.


 Can Solé (C/San Carles, 4; Traditional Catalan
cuisine, with excellent rice dishes. An institution. It is close to the old port, the Port
Vell, which is a nice area for going for a walk afterwards. A bit more expensive.
 El Suquet de l’Almirall. (Passeig de Joan de Borbó, 65; This place is also close to the Port Vell. It is also
an emblematic place, and very cosy, where you can have all sorts of rice dishes,
especially brothy rice ("arroz caldoso"), which is very typical in Catalonia. It´s a bit
more expensive.
 Catamarán (Avda. Litoral, 44 (Platja Bogatell); For paellas, but this time at the
Bogatell beach. Start for example with squid and have a seafood paella or a meat grill,
with a white wine of Rueda verdejo, in a relaxing beach atmosphere. But the best is
the view and the walk at the beach afterwards.
 Matsuri (Pl. Regomir 1; One of the best Asian
restaurants (Japanese and Thai) in Barcelona.
 El Café de l’Academia (Carrer de Lledó, 1;
This is a small and cosy place located in the gothic quarter. Great Catalan food, with a
nice terrace.
 Casa Alfonso (Roger de Llúria 6; Delicious tapas and ham.
 “La Boquería” market: The bars located around the Boquería market (right at the
centre, just off the Rambla street) serve fresh fish and seafood. El Quim de la Boquería
and Pinotxo are examples of such bars. The market is definitely a must-see.
 Qué bueno que viniste (C/Ciutat, 10; Combines
Argentinean cuisine with tapas.
 Little Italy (C/ Rec, 30; Italian restaurant with live jazz
 Meson David (Carrer Carretes 63; Restaurant with
typical Galician food in the Raval.
 Tickets (Avinguda Paral·lel, 164; El Bulli Chef Ferran
Adria is one of the owners of this tapas bar which serves of course avantgarde tapas.
It´s pricey. And you must reserve online.

Vegetarians and vegans can have a bit of a rough time in Spain. Tapas is a good option; so are
Italian restaurants. In mainstream restaurants, you can best ask for two entrees instead of one
entree and a main course. Even so, do not be surprised if there is some ham or an anchovy in
your "vegetarian" dish... Some completely vegetarian/vegan restaurants:

 Juicy Jones (C/Hospital 74). Vegan food, menu of 10 euros both at lunch and dinner
time. Of course there are also lots of fruit and vegetable juices to try. Very original,
colourful and cheap.


 Teresa Carles (Jovellanos, 2; Known as the best
vegetarian restaurant in town. Prices range from 12-25 euros. Vegetarian food with
hints of the Catalan cuisine.
 La Báscula (C/ Flassaders, 30). Very cosy ambience, and the daily changing menu
includes standards such as quiches, crêpes, smoothies and delicious cakes. Make sure
you try their homemade ginger and lemon juice.
 Biocenter (C/Pintor Fortuny, 25; ) Price between 10
and 25 euros. Vegetarian and vegan food, organic production.

What to do during leisure time in Barcelona?
It´s July! And Barcelona is full of activities during these days. We let you know some places to
visit, and, if you wish, we can help you to manage the reservation tickets for dinners,
museums, concerts…
If you only have time in the evenings, here are some sites to visit and things to do:
 La Pedrera ( A visit to Casa Milà, popularly
known as ‘La Pedrera’ (the stone quarry), gives us a better understanding and
appreciation of architecture and take us to the period when Antoni Gaudí lived. The
programme 'La Pedrera by day’ includes a visit to the most important parts of the
building: the Roof-Terrace, the Espai Gaudí (the attic), an apartment that recreates
bourgeois life in the early 20th century, The Courtyards, and the Exhibition Hall, which
has a separate direct entrance from the street and is open whenever there is an
exhibition. But for those of you who don´t stay an extra day, the programme `The
Secret Pedrera´ (from 8.15 pm; last entry at 10.45 pm) shows you La Pedrera by night.
You can combine the tour with a dinner if you like. Should you like to enjoy a small jazz
concert in the atmosphere of La Pedrera, you can visit it on the 3rd, 4th or 5th of July
at 9.45 pm for a concert of the Horacio & Lucía Fumero Trío, plus drinks, check
 Gran Teatre del Liceu (
2014) Barcelona's opera house, the Gran Teatre del Liceu, was founded on the Rambla
in 1847 and has continued over the years to fulfill its role as a culture and arts centre.
It is one of the symbols of the city. Check out the program at their website.
 Palau de la Musica ( The Palau de la Música Catalana
is an architectural jewel of Catalan Art Nouveau, the only concert venue in this style to
be listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. The concert auditorium is one of the
most distinguished in the world. You can do a guided tour at the Palau (expensive
though). If you would like to enjoy the Palau properly, consider booking a ticket for a


choir singing "the Four Seasons" on the 1st of July, or a flamenco performance on the
 Sala Apolo (; c/ Nou de la Rambla 113) and
Razzmatazz (; Pamplona 88) are two night clubs that
are quite popular. Jamboree (Plaça Reial 17 ) and the Harlem Jazz Club (C/Comtessa
de Sobradiel, 8) are... jazz clubs you can check out.
 On the 1st and 4th of July, there are matches of the World Cup in Brazil. Want to know
the best bars for watching football in Barcelona, right? Check out http://www.oh-
 Of course you cannot leave Barcelona without taking a dip in the Mediterranean sea,
even if it´s at night. The Barceloneta beach is probably the most crowded one (but not
at night), but the most central too. At some beach bars you can dine too, a relaxed way
to end the day (and start the night)

Did you plan an extra day in Barcelona? Good! Of course one great activity is to stroll through
the Gothic Quarter with its labyrinth of narrow streets and beautiful squares and churches, to
admire some of the highlights of the Modernist architecture, or to relax in one of the parks of
the city (Parc Guell! Parc de la Ciutadella! .. and take a tea in the Hivernacle if you´re there)
 Exhibition at the Centre de Cultura Contemporanea de Barcelona (CCCB): "Big Bang
Data" ( An exhibition of the
explosion of data in our lives, with beautiful data visualizations. Montalegre 5, 08001
Barcelona. Open Tuesday to Sunday 11 am - 8 pm.
 Museu Nacional d´ Art de Catalunya (MNAC). (
This museum at the Montjuic hill provides an overview of Catalan art from the 12th to
the 20th centuries. The best part of the museum is probably the Romanesque
collection. When art historians realised that scores of the tenth-century churches in
the Pyrenees were falling into ruin, the beautiful Romanesque murals were removed
from church apses and they are displayed in the MNAC. Tuesday to Saturday, 10am to
8pm; Sundays and public holidays, 10am to 3pm.
 MACBA ( As a public entity, the Museu d’Art
Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA) disseminates contemporary art, offering a
diverse range of visions, and generates critical debates on art and culture, while
aspiring to reach increasingly diverse audiences. Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and
Friday, from 11 am to 7.30 pm. Saturday, from 10 am to 9 pm
Sunday and public holidays, from 10 am to 3 pm.
 If you are more a swimming pool type of person than a beach person, don´t miss out
on the public swimming pool on the Montjuic hill (Avinguda de Miramar, 31), with
spectacular views on the urban landscape. No time, but you want to see the view
anyway? Here´s a video that explains it all.....
