Feliz Ano 2008
We celebrated the new year sipping Cava (champagne) whilst watching the firework display all around the publo of Los Cristianos. As the church bells struck we followed the tradition of trying to eat a grape with each stroke of the bell. Another failure!
Some of the fireworks took the form of palm trees in what was an impressive show.
Live music was played on a stage near to the Valdez centre but the atmosphere was not quite as intimate as in previous years in the church square. The bands got good reviews and people were appreciative of the efforts made by the organisers and local people.
When the Spaniards fiesta they really do Fiesta!
