The usual mixture of weather was forecast – just take your pick.
But the preparations in Mer just went ahead. With the help of emergency umbrellas we managed to get through the welcome drinks.
The surprise menu item PULPO made a friendly face or at least Carmen did, as she kindly supplied and prepared the delicacy – (did I write that?)
Whilst the feeding frenzy was underway – the kids where the loudest too demand pulpo by the way – and there was some squabbling over “PICA o non PICA” the rain finally eased off just for a while to allow for the preparations to go outside.
After cafe and chupitas we all went outside to watch the fire and be mesmerized by the flames of the QUEIMADA. The conxuro, properly read out in Galego and English should ward off any evil for the year to come.
It was a great evening and we’d like to thank all neighbors, friends and acquaintances who helped make it a success.
