The Faces of Fallas

Yes, it's back again, Fallas! An exhibition of Valencian creativity and wackiness. The brightest paints and the best quality polystyrene. No-holds-barred fireworks... and no-holds-barred churros!
Here are some of my favourite faces from a not so ordinary day out in the streets of Valencia...

Now watch carefully!

There'll be surprises...


Wild animals...
Wild men!
Pirates...
Finely-dressed Falleras...
Tapas...?
Music...









More surprises!





More tapas!





International celebrities...

Old friends...

Their friends...


Romance...



And lots of cheek!

Welcome to Fallas 2013!

Nit Mágica, Magic Night, Castellón, Valencia.

Magic Night. 

Sounds like a lot of fun. Just don't go asking any locals where the magician is performing. (Yes, I'm afraid I did.) Put conjuring tricks out of your mind and think 'firework mayhem'. Yes, that just about sums it up. Part of Castellón de la Plana's 'Magdalena' fiesta. Along with churros and tapas and a few cañas, it's a pretty good night out.

Just don't wear your best coat!

Starters: A tapa of paella, a couple of empanadas and a few cañas.
Main Course: Churros, chocolate caliente...
 Now the real fun begins...
