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.

¡Hosannah!

Palm Sunday is a big do in Spain, the start of Holy Week and the chance for the family to get out and be seen around town. Because I'd gone to see the SEAT 850 I was in Orihuela so I watched the procession there. Lots of dignitaries at the front, everybody waving palm fronds or carrying small shaped bits of palm leaf. It was a splendid sunny day. Nice event. Children seemed to be at the centre of it. Everywhere, proud parents, wearing their finery, snapped pictures of their children holding bits of twig.
