Valencia during Fallas with guests
We had the pleasure to spend the second half of March with the kids and the rest of the family in Valencia (Spain).
My Canadian in-laws had never seen Fallas, the crazy annual festival that leaves the whole city literally up in flames every March 19th, after over a week of outdoor concerts, food, parades, firecrackers and fireworks.
We enjoyed paella, “chocolate con buñuelos”, live flamenco… but without a doubt, the highlight was to be able to experience the “mascletá” firecracker extravaganza from the most vantage position: the balcony of a private bank’s offices in the Plaza del Ayuntamiento (thanks again, Antonio!). Our ribs definitely felt like they were going to break from all those explosions! 🙂
