Week 50: light, rain and señoritas

Filed under: — Administrator @ 10:58

During this week Spain was hit with a blast of arctic air from northern Europe. Much of the country has been hit by snow, ice, freezing temperatures and other wintry nastiness. No snow or freezing in Alicante, but it has been cold and rainy for much of the week.

Since Christmas is approaching, it is also the season for various parties and similar events.

On another day, I cycled to an area called Santa Faz, where there is a well-known monastery of the same name. This is the street alongside the convent:

  1. Interesting that the software of this site enters my name and e-mail in this form !!!

    I am intrigued by the film grain on the far wall in 50.jpg 🙂
    I especially like that one and the portrait of your two Polish colleagues.
