It's been literally months since we did a blog roundup, which used to be a regular feature around here. It needs to become a regular feature again.

Publius Pundit has lots of stuff on Russia, including this piece on declining oil production.

Fausta fears that Paraguay has joined the Axis of Evel Knievel.

Wirdheim in Vilanova has some nice Sant Jordi photos.

Spanish Pundit has more on Zaharawi, Ceuta, and Melilla. (Scroll down for English.)

South of Watford comments on the Barcelona water situation and Spanish politics.

Notes from Spain reminds us that Correos sucks.

No Pasaran! destroys an anti-American French blogger. Check this one out.

La Gatita Gringa has the latest on Spain's Eurovision entry. One comment: It's not politically charged; they just threw in Zap and Rajoy's names as examples of how everyone likes to dance the chiki-chiki, and that's been cut from the Eurovision version, as even the most innocuous political content is banned.

Iberia Nature updates us on the Iberian lynx, with cool photos.

Eursoc says that though it's super-PC in Catalonia to get excited over Sant Jordi, it's very un-PC to do so in England.

The Dissident Frogman has a must-read on the problem with Brigitte Bardot and those she associates with, and he weighs in on a blog dust-up between Little Green Footballs and Gates of Vienna.

Davids Medienkritik has a nice one on the German media's pet issues when reporting on the US.

If you like Iberian Notes, you'll love Colin Davies--just as informative and much less obnoxious.

The Brussels Journal has a must-read piece by a professional analyst on the PP power struggle. Highly recommended.

Thanks for including my post, John.

And very interesting all of them, specially the one of the Dissident Frogman (I had already read XDDDD) and the one from No Pasaran!...

I will wait sometime till the PP's crisis is solutioned in either way to write in English. I am very angry about what is happening. That's why I want to let it pass to be able to make a summary of events and to make some reasonable conclusions.
