Mid March saw us flying off to the slightly warmer climate of Spain with our friends Jan & Kev to visit their villa in La Drova, not far from Gandia, eastern Spain not far from Valencia.

We timed the visit to coincide with the Fallas festival which is described:

The Valencia Fallas festivity burns away winter worries in a tribute to spring.  As a pagan ritual originating in ancient Mediterranean cultures brought to the shores of Valencia in remote times, this artistic display totally transforms the city during what is called "Fallas Week".  True to the saying, only those who have actually seen it can believe it.
