A visit from Grandpa

Josep Mascaró, the 102 year old “grandfather” of Mallorca, that is.

Posted by vamosrafelnadal who thoughtfully added some Spanish subtitles. Here’s what feeding through Google gets me:

Rafa leaving Paris tomorrow and D. Josep did not want to miss any detail of the training

Like this? Que tal? You are the most famous person in Mallorca.

Well, tomorrow we are going to Paris.

Todavia bike. Almost every day is a bike ride.

I thought you were not so great (tall).

Everybody thinks that I am lower and wider. Thank you very much for coming.

    That’s kind of hilarious. It’s also sweet. It’s also got some strange artsy editing for a news spot. I’ll have to give 4.5 stars!

    Rafa is so gorgeous in this. And I love how he’s so warm with people. Rafa just has this amazing quality that he’s able to relate to anyone he meets. So respectful and loving with his elders, so lovely with children, so much camaraderie with fellow players, and such poise with dignitaries and royalty, and all with his laidback charm. I can go on and on about how wonderful a human being Rafa is. Sigh.

    Absolutely agree with you nic, I was just thinking the same thing, he is soo young @ 22/23 and yet so patient and kind with both old people and children, a true sign of the wonderful, giving and special human being he is, he radiates warmth and his class is a step above others, his grace unmatched. I have never known anyone quite like him, will we ever?
