I know, I know, Fallas was several weeks ago. My apologies, Gentle Reader, because I have been occupied by things that limited my time to work on the blog. That is not necessarily a bad thing, but it does mean that I have neglected you somewhat. Don’t worry, though, because there is more coming up in the next several posts! I did a little traveling over Easter, and have plenty of pictures to share. In the meantime, here are the final pictures from Las Fallas that I wanted you to see.

One note: Please forgive the lighting on some of these photos. The weather was abysmal the final week of Las Fallas, and you may remember that my camera tends to capture less-than-good images when the lighting is bad.

Falla Na Jordana’s falla is where we left off, so let’s continue…

Behind Falla Na Jordana was a whole festival of events, and the ninot infantíl was being assembled.

Interesting and well-done theme. However, set against the background of Torres Serrano, this falla pokes fun at tourists, dogs, and people who need more time developing skateboarding skills!

I find the “unwrapping” of the fallas kind of interesting, and you might think so, too. This falla was being assembled, but the faces of the fallas were hidden under black plastic hoods.

This falla’s theme is pink flamingos, and is a satirical nod to the Andalucía and the south of Spain. I found the face on the main flamingo pretty funny!

Remember when I told you about the Bankia “Black Card”? See what these guys are holding?
