A busy week of work and a bit of cycling, and a visit to Mercado Central for the first time in a couple of months.

Another weekend bike ride. We have had a lot of clouds and rain, in fact, this is the rainiest March since the Spanish meteorological office began keeping records in the 1880s:

I stopped for a break in Busot. The tiny Sunday market was being wound up:

On Sunday we were going to celebrate my wife’s birthday with curry for our Spanish friends–they love my Indian food. So on Saturday morning I went to the Mercado Central to buy the lamb. It is much better and cheaper there than in supermarkets. As I always do, I walked around for a while, taking pictures:

The fish and seafood section is always the most interesting part of the market:
