Hello lovely ladies, it's Friday again, and I'm here to show you some highlights of my week. Life is good and there have been many smiles.
Of course postcards in my mailbox always make me smile. This card comes from Tanya in Belarus:
The stamp is gorgeous too. It is one of those triangular ones:
It shows a fragment of the traditional Slutsk sash, that noblemen wore.
Here is a blog that I found about these sashes. Have a look, it is very interesting.
The second card is a cutie. Although the kitten looks a bit scared.
It was sent to me by Christina who lives in northeastern Germany.
Here in our village the Feria has started. Fortunately it is at the other side of the village, a good ten minute walk from here, so we don't have any noise or bother from revelers in the night.
It started with the autos locos, in which people career down the High Street in a home made vehicle.
Here they are all waiting before the start:
By the way, the people in the skirts are all blokes!This is a fake police van.
Even a tank!
The building with the arches is our Ayuntamiento, the town hall.
And this little church is the hermitage of San Sebastián built in the XVII century.
This guy looks like he just came out of prison!
And they're off!
Over the ramp.
I was standing safely behind some pretty large straw bales.
But this guy from the television crew was on the unsafe side of the bales, filming the vehicles coming over the ramp.
Our mayoress had told me that the tv crew would be in town all day and they wanted to (also) interview some foreigners that live in the village. Would I be willing. Yes, I was willing, but in the end they didn't talk to me. I admit I was relieved.
I have done a lot more this week as it's all happening, but I will leave that for another post. This one is long enough as it is.
As usual there will be some funnies at the end.
And now I will be of to visit Annie at A Stitch In Time and Virginia at Rocking Your Week Friday. See you there!
Have a great weekend,
The guy I photographed in our village probably got his jump suit from this bus!
