The social aspect of our gatherings is of equal importance as the photography and generally any meeting will involve a few beers and lunch or dinner depending on the time of day :-D Here are some of them at the opening of an exhibition of our photos in Callosa de Segura, and yes, it was followed by lunch and a couple of cubatas!!!

The Desfile de Moros is one of the most stunning parades that Orihuela has to offer during the Fiestas. Out again with the AFOTO gang, saw the parade and later went for a quick dinner in the Casablanca. After which, we watched the Liverpool Group, with the comparsa Contrabandistas, fantastic Beatles tribute band, they finished at 04:00 am, truly amazing and thoroughtly enjoyed it. After this we appeared to be heading for the car, but oh no off to another comarsa to see another band untill 05:30, then it was home and bed. A very long day and night.
Girlies spent first 3 weeks of the holidays with their Daddy, so I managed to get a good start on part 2 of operation house paint. All that can be seen from the road is now done and Part 3 will follow next time they are away. It also gave me some fine adult only socializing time - hehe!! Went out with AFOTO a couple of times, once an allnighter - completely unexpected, but great fun.
