Life in Culebrón is a disconnected series of pieces about the banal and ordinary of everyday life in an inland Alicante village seen from my very British perspective.

Moors and Christians

There have been other posts on this blog about Moors and Christians so, just to say, that the season has started again with Sax's festival from 1 to 5 February. We had visitors with us who were interested in seeing the procession on Saturday despite the torrential rain.

I was very impressed that, whilst we sheltered under the overhang of a block of flats, the participants just got on with it and splashed their way from puddle to puddle. I could understand why the Comparsa whose uniform was a long frock coat and a "Capn. Hornblower" hat, complete with feather, chose to wrap matching plastic bags around their hats.

We were there!
It was a shame that the "Guapos" needed to protect the feathers of their hats from the rain.....
Never mind it was good.
