100 years of Independence

  • the Antifa march, which gathered about 70 people and
  • the Independence March in which over 250,000 people took part.

Silkworms

Girls have a school project – silkworms. Silkworms are kept in a class but who wanted could take some home, so we have them at home, exactly porch.

I hate worms but I really like the project.

Watch the movie at the end of the post.

Viernes Santo – Good Friday

Soaring hoods called Capirote, covered faces, habits and long cloaks – penitents are marching one after another in the Good Friday’s procession. This event makes a big impression and it is definitely worth experiencing. The most well-known procession is in Seville. It attracts tourists from around the world. However, if someone does not like the crowd, I recommend visiting other cities in the south of Spain.procession

8:00 pm – party time

You would expect that in the middle of the carnival fiesta all bars and restaurants are full of people having fun, talking, laughing, drinking, dancing etc., especially in tourist places. Well, it is off-season time.

In my previous post, I showed photos from the carnival parade. Now I want to show how the bars, restaurants, streets looked like at the time when a parade of happy dancers was passing by.
