I presume we have seen...and felt the tail end of Storm Imogen here in Spain because the wind these last few days has been horrendous.
Alicante Carnival had to put up with some destruction such as fallen floats and cancellation of some of the events due to these high winds!
Anyhow Carnival has been and gone now and I saw little of it due to work. The finale was yesterday with the typical "Burial of the Sardine" ...yes Sardine as in fish!! Funny tradition!
It is quite hilarious really what with all the mourners and widows in black (usually Men) wailing as if it were a real funeral. There were a few devils hopping around too and lots of people singing and dancing.
I am looking forward to Easter and a few days off . It will be a quiet Easter as Daughter Nº1 and Cookie baby will be off to the States for 10 days to visit my grand-daughter's American grandparents and the rest of her family there.
She is so excited!
I think it must be all of 5 years that she hasn't seen them.
