Some "beBee places"

beBee is diversity.  An organization’s success and competitiveness depends upon its ability to embrace diversity and realize the benefits. I will be adding more and more places to this article whenever my team is sending me their place of birth.

Madrid, Spain's capital, is a city of elegant boulevards and expansive, manicured parks such as the Buen Retiro. It’s renowned for its rich repositories of European art, including the Prado Museum’s works by Goya, Velázquez and other Spanish masters. The heart of old Hapsburg Madrid is the portico-lined Plaza Mayor, and nearby is the baroque Royal Palace and Armory, displaying historic weaponry.

United States



Castile and León is a region of northwestern Spain, consisting predominantly of a high plateau ringed by mountains. Salamanca is known for its 12th-century university, Renaissance churches and baroque Plaza Mayor. Segovia’s ancient Roman aqueduct has more than 160 arches, and the hilltop Alcázar castle overlooks the city. Ávila is encircled by an 11th-century fortification wall with 82 semicircular towers. Capitals: Valladolid, León, Burgos, Soria, Salamanca, Segovia, Avila, Palencia, Zamora.

Castile and León traces its history to the medieval kingdoms of Castile and León, which were permanently united under the Crown of Castile in 1301. In Spain and in some other parts of the Spanish-speaking world, Spanish is called not only español (Spanish) but also castellano (Castilian), the language from the kingdom of Castile, contrasting it with other languages spoken in Spain such as Galician (Daniel Paz speaks Galician), Basque (Julián Campos speaks Basque) and Catalan. ... the other Spanish languages. I am really proud of speaking Castellano , an universal language. I always say if you speak spanish and english, you are in a real advantage. Spanish is the 2nd most spoken language in the world (after chinese).

Top 3 spoken languages in the world

1.- Chinese:  almost 1.2 billion native speakers
2.- Spanish:  If we are only to look at native speakers, Spanish has its nose in front of English with about 400 million native speakers. If you want a language that will open up whole continents to you, Spanish is your best bet.
3.- English:  If you’re reading this article you may be one of the 360 million native English speakers, or one of the half a billion people who speak it as a second language. This indicates the remarkable success of English as the center of business, travel and international relations. The relative ease with which English can be picked up and the power of US mean that English will continue to dominate the world stage. English is still synonymous with opportunity

Sofía Cid González -  Salamanca

6d784bc3.jpgSalamanca is a BEEautiful city in Spain.  Salamanca, in northwestern Spain, is the capital of Salamanca province, part of the Castile and León region. With a history dating back to the Celtic era, it’s known for its ornate sandstone architecture and for the Universidad de Salamanca. Founded in the 1100s and a key intellectual center in the 15th-16th centuries, the university continues to add to the city’s vibrancy with its international student population.

Jaime Labiaga Ferrer - Segovia


Segovia is a spectacular city.  Segovia is a historic city northwest of Madrid, in central Spain's Castile and León region. Its centuries of settlement have resulted in a rich architectural legacy, including medieval walls, Romanesque churches, a former royal palace and a Gothic cathedral. Its iconic ancient Roman aqueduct (over 2000 years old) has more than 160 arches, most in the original mortarless granite, and stands above Plaza Azoguejo in the heart of the city.

Javier Cámara Rica - Burgos - Miranda de Ebro


Miranda de Ebro is a city on the Ebro river in the province of Burgos in the region of Castilla y León, Spain. It is located in the north-eastern part of the province, on the border with the province of Alava (30 km from Vitoria, where Juan Imaz was born) and the region of La Rioja (very well known by the famous spanish wine). The first settlements in the area date from the Iron Age. The Roman ruins of Arce are located only 3 kilometres (1.9 mi) from Miranda. There, according to the most recent studies, the Roman city of Deóbriga was built. Roman ruins are also found in the nearby municipalities of Cabriana and Puentelarrá.

Marta Carretero Garcia and me met for the first time in Madrid, but we are from the same area. It was an affinity-based connection :-)



Virag🐝 G.Budapest


Budapest, Hungary’s capital, is bisected by the River Danube. Its 19th-century Chain Bridge connects the hilly Buda district with flat Pest. A funicular runs up Castle Hill to Buda’s Old Town, where the Budapest History Museum traces city life from Roman times onward. Trinity Square is home to 13th-century Matthias Church and the turrets of the Fishermen’s Bastion, which offer sweeping views.

Raul Duque Montánez -  Miskolc

Brazil - Recife

Breno Barreto - Brazil- Pernambuco - Recife

Juan Imaz - Buenos Aires , in Madrid (Spain) since she was 1 year old :-)


Puerto Madero, Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires is Argentina’s big, cosmopolitan capital city. Its center is the Plaza de Mayo, lined with stately 19th-century buildings including Casa Rosada, the iconic, balconied presidential palace. Other major attractions include Teatro Colón, a grand 1908 opera house with nearly 2,500 seats, and the modern MALBA museum, displaying Latin American art.


Spain - Galicia

Daniel Paz - Pontevedra - Vilanova de Arousa


Arcing around the southern swathe of the ria de Arousa and heading towards the open sea and the outcrop of land known as O Grove, Vilanova de Arousa is the next town after Vilagarcia de Arousa.

Vilanova de Arousa is a far more attractive town than its similarly named neighbour and as you drive through it you realise that the north of the town is comprised primarily of small hotels and restaurants, all within a whisker of the little beaches that line the coast. It has an up market feel, but in an informal way and the beaches, whist small and with a coarse yellow sand, look very appealing. 

Spain - Aragón

Sofía Cid González - Huesca - Jaca


Can you see the HIVE ? :-)

Jaca is THE HIVE. Now seriously, Jaca is a city of northeastern Spain in the province of Huesca, located near the Pyrenees and the border with France. Jaca is an ancient fort on the Aragón River, situated at the crossing of two great early medieval routes, one from Pau to Zaragoza.

Aragon is an area in Spain, coextensive with the medieval Kingdom of Aragon. Located in northeastern Spain, the Aragonese autonomous community comprises three provinces: Huesca, Zaragoza and Teruel. Its capital is Zaragoza.


Spain -  Castilla-La Mancha

Alejandro Dotor de Pradas - Ciudad Real - Valdepeñas


Valdepeñas is a municipality in the province of Ciudad Real, in the area of  Castile-La Mancha, Spain.

It is mostly in this region where the story of the famous Spanish novel Don Quixote  by Miguel de Cervantes is situated, due to which La Mancha is internationally well-known. Although La Mancha is a windswept, battered plateau, it remains a symbol of Spanish culture with its vineyards, sunflowers, mushrooms, olive plantations, windmills, Manchego cheese and Don Quixote.

Finland - Helsinki

Rafael García Romano - Finland - Helsinki


Helsinki, Finland’s southern capital, sits on a peninsula in the Gulf of Finland. Its central avenue, Mannerheimintie, is flanked by institutions including the National Museum, tracing Finnish history from the Stone Age to the present. Also on Mannerheimintie are the imposing Parliament House and Kiasma, a contemporary art museum. Ornate red-brick Uspenski Cathedral overlooks a harbor.

Cuba  - La Habana

Ana Elisa Llera - La Habana

Havana is Cuba’s capital city. Spanish colonial architecture in its 16th-century Old Havana core includes the Castillo de la Real Fuerza, a fort and maritime museum.

USA - New Jersey - Jersey City

Juan Imaz - Jersey


Jersey City is the second most populous city in the US state of New Jersey, after Newark.  It is the seat of Hudson County as well as the county's largest city.

Thank you, Javier, for this brilliant buzz. The photos are stunning and the people noted are each unique in their own ways which is what makes diversity such an important concept to embrace in business and life generally. Diversity is one of the things I love about beBee. Diverse people. Diverse backgrounds. Diverse languages. Diverse demographics. Diverse buzz. Diverse opinions. Diverse hives, the list goes on... In fact, I think the terms "affinity" and "diversity" go hand in hand. Can you have one without the other? Thus while beBee is officially the "affinity social network" it's also the "diversity social network". Moreover, more and more employers are learning that diversity simply makes good business sense, especially considering today's multiracial, multilingual, multiethnic and multicultural global markets and labor force. As I wrote here about a year ago: "A diverse workforce challenges traditional and antiquated thinking with fresh out-of-the-box business concepts. This can subsequently improve productivity, efficiency and effectiveness of overall business operations and boost profits. Moreover, embracing diversity in the workplace can help companies expand their consumer base and improve recruitment, retention and advancement of talented employees. Fostering a work culture of diversity means employers won't miss out on hiring the best available talent in a global marketplace." https://www.bebee.com/producer/@dbgrinberg/why-workforce-diversity-is-simply-good-business In short, diversity is what helps make beBee great and stand out in the crowded social media space. Thus, let's raise a glass to celebrate diversity!

That would be great to perform so, ringing all Ambassadors' bell to Help Judit Lerch complete her mission in regards of adminstrative completion,ma kind of diplomatic friendly reminders by giving everyone personal branding recognition... hahaha...It's also a great way to build teams by affinities and strategic geo positionning in one article, like a croos roads or an oasis in the desert where everybody learn from one another.
