Week 05: tapeo

Filed under: — Administrator @ 22:08

The main event of the week was our departmental tapeo. Instead of holding a Christmas party in December, when everyone’s schedules are full of holiday events, we take a Friday afternoon off in late January or early February and go out to a couple of pre-selected tapas bars in the centre of town and have a good time. So most of this week’s pictures are from Friday afternoon.

The second bar was Mejillones de Correos. The bar is very small, so we had to sit outside in the cool, sunny weather:

One classic tapas dish is huevos rotos (“broken eggs”):

This is Daniel, who is an expert on Alicante restaurants and played a crucial role in selecting the two places and the tapas we were going to eat there:

The last three images are from Saturday’s bike ride in the mountains surrounding Alicante.

The main square of Busot is not much more lively than that in Aigües. But there is a church cat:
