Not all Scots are mad but I am

While travelling through the Murcia region we came across a small village called Ojos, which happened to be in fiesta, so we stopped to look at the fiesta.  The people in the village made us most welcome and invited us into the church and then join in the festivities. They must have realised we were Scottish and enjoy a good party.  It was a traditional Spanish fiesta and the village folk dressed in traditional Spanish dresswear. It was colourfull and the music was indeed unusual. It was like being back in Spain 100 years ago. We used our best Spanish to have a conversation with the locals which they appreciated, as they do not often meet forieners in this inland part of Spain. It made our day and we stayed for longer than expected enjoying the atmosphere and we even had a lovely tapas with a traditional sangria.               We will be back Los Ojos
