Sorry to start off on a sadder note on a Monday morning…

Saul Gabarri Valdes, 7, (pictured) cries amongst the remains of his home after it was demolished at the Spanish gypsy settlement of Puerta de Hierro, near Madrid. Fifty-four families have been living in Puerta de Hierro, on the banks of the Manzanares river for over 50 years. Since the summer of 2010, the community has been subject to evictions on the grounds. Families are moving in with relatives whose houses still remain while the demolitions are still taking place.
