Re: Spanish Festivals

I'ts horses for courses really
We did 7 years there , loved the place , went on a few day trips (one to Valencia), stayed in what in Turkey would be a 5 star accommodation
The old town has some decent bars, as does the new town ....saw a beatles tribute group one night , the guy playing John Lennon was a dead ringer , saw Francisco Jackson, a Michael jackson tribute who does a top class magic act, saw world class acts at Benidorm palace
I mean where else could you get 5 acts on in one night, air con and waiter service apart from Vegas

That's bang on Ted, my friends I mentioned earlier would love all that, the shows etc. not for me though.
I enjoy the mooching around learning a bit about the history of a place and prefer the smaller bars and restaurants.
I did smile at your comments about Vegas, we went to see Elton John at Caesars Palace and it was a great show, but we were there for a week and there's only so many slots and tables you can walk past so we booked to see Mama Mia at the Mandalay Bay next door, I really enjoyed that one and surprised myself, for another break from it all we went to a show as you described at the Stratosphere, the difference being they were all crap, The yanks on our table were gob smacked we had never heard of the artists let alone the tribute artists mimicking them, great laugh but not great music.

Re: Spanish Festivals

Today is the BEST part of our festival for greedy non cooking types like me

Free paella tasting!!

Paella pan in village square is about 3 metres across- hopefully I can store enough to keep me going all week

Re: Spanish Festivals

Is 3 portions greedy?

Taking into account I refused a free bar altogether as it was spirits only which I don't drink

Kid about 12 took pity on me and pushed through crowd to bring me free tins of beer

Re: Spanish Festivals

They def take their time sizing you up.

Generally their opinion of us is wifey- absolutely lovely well mannered kind girl

Me- bit dim but likeable !!!

But if you come across as decent they are good to you. With this being a small town and us right in the centre you really are under the spotlight but when you show any friendliness/ kindness it comes straight back

Last Easter we brought over an Easter egg for the kid of a bar staff member. We were asked about this in 4 seperate pubs in the town ( relatives, friends of child) who thought it was lovely gesture

Decent people
