Falla crowds_7322

Once a year, in Valencia, the Fallas happen.  We wanted to get a feel for the city before it all went up in smoke.  (For more on smoke and fire, tune in for next week’s posts!)

Everything was in blossom, the scents so heavy we kept stopping like we did right here–just to breathe deep.

The Eleven O’Clock crew went a little nuts over the architecture:  the grand facades, the churches, the bull fighting ring, the bones of the old city.

Electric with anticipation, the city grew louder and crazier as the day wore on. Next week, find out why!

You would have enjoyed the pre-falla wanderings . . . not necessarily the all-out fallas! They were cra-zy! xx
