  3. Las fallas en Valencia. It's amazing. I cannot make it justice with neither words nor photos. It has been celebrated in the region since the 18th century at least. It started as a homage to the saint of the carpenter, Joseph of Nazareth. The carpenters would collect all the wood that was left over and burn it on the 19th of March. It is now a two-week non-stop fiesta of biblical proportions (if you don't mind the reference). People team up a year in advance and construct enormous statues in papier maché. There are ceremonies every day with different meanings. Kids go around the town throwing small bangers overlooked by their parents. There are entire streets dedicated to this practice. There are "mascletas" around the clock. Mascletas is mostly very, very noisy and intense fireworks. And it all ends on the 19th of March when all the figures are ceremoniously cremated in "la crema". Since fallas has been cancelled two years in a row due to the pandemic, this was our first experience. I am in love. Unfortunately my photos does not make this party justice. I tip my hat to my Spanish neighbors who do know how to throw a fiesta.



  4. Really cool!

    I walked around a little shopping center today after doing some grocery shopping. I just bought a Canon 50mm f/1.4 lens which I'm putting through the paces. I don't know why I waited this long to buy that lens.
