Spain so far
When I arrived to Murcia, a feast started that will last for 13 days with street food and concerts. This includes a very big theme park by the river.
No flamingos were hurt during this photo shoot - but maybe a few ears. The exprience is like hearing twenty-five discothecs that melted together but continued to compete: who has the highest sound?
Lunchtime in Spain starts at about 2.30 p.m. Meanwhile, shops and museums are closed and open up at 5 p.m. again. This is at a restaurant, with huge food baskets that separate the tables (can you spot the garlic at the back?) - a nice inspiration idea for other restaurants too, methink.
The beach in San Javier looks exactly like this. The water is Mar Menor, not the Mediterranean but a closed-off water nearby that is salter. Colder than the sea in July in Italy, but warmer than any Swedish waters, of course.
