Between March 12 and March 19, the worldwide capital of the paella, Valencia, becomes for a few days in the fire town of all the Mediterranean because it celebrates the famous Fallas.
Everybody knows that this party was originated by the craftsmen of this zone, specially carpenters. Its origin is relatively simple, it was just the burning of the remains of the carpenter’s workshops.
Thanks to the Valencian people inventiveness these remains were agglutinated year after year acquiring human features till the point of representing popular neighborhood characters, so that the famous falleros artists were born.
The big sculptures made of paper and cardboard on a wooden framework are called “fallas” the construction of these sculptures doesn’t have limits and nowadays there are several models, for example the ninots, very realist animals, cartoons, abstract figures, futuristic themes, etc.
More than 300 sculptures which are built along all over the year in order to fill the streets of this city with a strange and gigantic coloring.
During the festive days it is practically impossible to drive a car or walk in the city because all the celebration is on the streets that are in the center of the city;
On these days are also celebrated other holydays, for example bullfightings and a beautiful floral offering to the “Virgen de los Desamparados”, patron saint of Valencia.
The last day of these holidays at the midnight, it means the March 19, it is celebrated the “cremá”, it is a tradition of fireworks, explosions, gunpowder and enormous sudden blazes in which the beautiful sculptures get reduced to ashes.
This day, March 19, it is celebrated the Saint Joseph’s day, day in which is also celebrate the Father’s Day in Spain because if you remember Joseph was the foster father of Jesus.
The “fallas” has become an important tourist attraction inside the Spanish folklore for Spaniards people as well as for foreigners.
Formula One Street Circuit
The urban circuit of Valencia is one of the three urban circuits of Formula 1 that they exist today , it was started in the middle of the year 2007 and welcomes the great prize of Europe since the year 2008.
Its length is bigger than 5 Km and it took for a race driver about 1 minute and 37 seconds to cover all over the road; It has 25 curves, 11 to the left and 14 to the right.
By the 2007 the agreement which allowed the construction street urban circuit was made official, in October of that year its construction was started and, in August 2008 it became the home of the Europe’s Grand Prix.
Its route has the same characteristics that a permanent circuit, the unique experience that it is.
Race drivers can run as fast as 320 km./hour, however they are protected by one of the most reliable security systems.
It has the last generation of boxes because each garage module is equipped with electric generators, illumination, telecommunication connectors, water, compressed air, drainages, smoke extraction systems, fire detection systems, etc.
One of its main characteristics is its position, it is located near to the harbor and its route is about 14 meters width, this made possible that a car could overtake to other cars in the race in spite of being a urban circuit.

For starters, the cruise ships are doing damage to the Venetian lagoon (and therefore the city itself), so if you can avoid cruises that have Venice as a port of call you’re already doing the city a great service.
But beyond that, the magic of Venice is much harder to experience when you have very limited time and when you aren’t spending the night. The best times of day in the city – without question – are the early morning (before the day-trippers arrive) and the late evening (after the day-trippers leave).
If you’re driving to Venice and back (which I don’t recommend, by the way), you have more flexibility to get there early and leave late for a long day-trip – but if you’re relying on public transport, your options aren’t going to allow you to get bewitched by Venice. So take my advice, spend at least one night (not on the mainland, either) and plan on two full days in the city.
Day One in Venice
You’ve just arrived by plane into Venice’s Marco Polo Airport, and it’s relatively early in the day. You’ll gather your bags and pull your groggy self toward the exit. You’ve read about how to get from Venice Airport into Venice, and you’ve decided which method of transportation makes the most sense for you. You’re also armed with the necessary information from your hotel or hostel, who told you which vaporetto (water bus) stop was closest to their front door.
In most cities, your first order of business upon arrival is to chuck your stuff in your room and get back out to actually see the city. In Venice, you get to see the city before you even see your hotel.
Assuming you’ve cleverly chosen a water transport method, secure a place by a window so you can see Venice come into view as you make your way across the lagoon from the airport. If you’ve splurged a bit on a water taxi, you’ll appreciate the ability to poke your head out of the top of the boat so you can really get a look at things. Have your camera ready. You’ll need it.
After you eventually check into your Venice hotel and put your bags down, resist the urge to crash for a nap. I know you’re jetlagged, but I hope the impossibility of the canal city has captivated you upon your entry and you’re eager to explore. Because that’s what you’ll spend the rest of the day doing.
Depending on when you’re visiting Venice, you may find that the lines to get into the city’s top sight – St. Mark’s Basilica – aren’t too long when you wander by. If that’s the case, jump at the chance to visit this amazing church.
It’s my favorite church anywhere (so far, at least), and it’s worth an hour (if you visit all the mini-exhibits within the basilica, that is, including taking the steep staircase to the roof where you can look over the square).
If you’ll be in Venice duruing the high season, you might look into booking a free reservation time to get into St. Mark’s Basilica – it’s free to enter, and free to book the entry time. You get about a 15-minute window in which to enter, and you just show your reservation code to the guard to bypass what can be quite a long line.
Along with a spin through St. Mark’s, the other attractions to visit during your first day in Venice are the Doge’s Palace(right next door to St. Mark’s, and worth the admission if for no other reason than it’s the only way to walk over the famous Bridge of Sighs) and the Campanile (bell tower) in front of St. Mark’s (you can take the elevator to the top for a view over the basilica), but otherwise your first day in Venice should be spent getting as utterly lost as you possibly can.
See the direction the bulk of the crowd is going? Turn left. Or right, if left would put you in a canal. And keep walking. Find another crowd? Go the other way.
Keep walking until you find those quiet back-streets of Venice, where Venetians live and work and shop. It won’t take long, I swear. It’s just that most people don’t bother to give it a try.
Oh, and put down the map for now. Maps in Venice are almost entirely useless, and you can’t get too lost, anyway. You’re on an island, after all, and you can always ask someone to direct you back to St. Mark’s Square or the Rialto or something major and find your way from there.
Later in the evening of your first day in Venice, swing by the Rialto Bridge – it’ll still be kind of crowded, but it’s sometimes less busy at night when the day-trippers have left. And this is a great time to take that leisurely “cruise” along the Grand Canal on the #1 slow vaporetto water bus that I listed as one of my 20 things everyone should do in Italy.
If you found St. Mark’s Square unbearably busy earlier in the day, walk back through one last time late at night – and I mean late, if you can keep your eyes open, like on your way back to your hotel from dinner.
Venice isn’t a nightlife town, so when restaurants close up it can get eerily quiet. Walk through those weird back-streets you found earlier. Walk to the edge of the islands and look out over the blackness of the Venetian lagoon. Listen to the water lapping against the edge of this city that shouldn’t exist, and whisper thanks that it does.
And sleep well.
Day Two in Venice
You’ll get up early on your second day in Venice, partly because you want to soak in the city as it’s waking up and getting ready for the day-trippers and partly because you’re still jetlagged. Whatever, go with it – it’ll work to your benefit in Venice.
If you’re out and about early enough, you may get treated to the city’s custodians sweeping up yesterday’s detritus in St. Mark’s Square, or Venetians doing their morning shopping near the Rialto Bridge at the city’s market (some of which is on boats). Yes, this is a real city where real people live, although the number of Venetians in Venice declines dramatically every year.
The way I see it, you’ll have two main options for how to spend your second day in Venice. If there are other sights (like the Guggenheim Museum or the Accademia) you want to see but missed on your first day’s wanderings, or if you loved your wandering so much that you felt like the sun set too soon, then by all means spend your second day much like your first.
Since it’s easily the best way to spend time in Venice, there’s nothing wrong with just strolling aimlessly for two days.
If, on the other hand, you’re feeling restless and want to see something else, you can spend a good part of the day on an excursion visiting the three major islands in the Venetian lagoon.
Murano is famous for glass-making, Burano is famous for lace-making (and it’s brightly-painted houses), and the remote Torcello is where the city of Venice got its start.
Murano is the most popular of the three, so you won’t really be escaping the crowds there – and you might be sucked into a half-hearted glass-blowing demonstration that spits you out in an overpriced gift shop (it’s not all bad, but be wary of people luring you into free demonstrations).
Burano is a little less crowded, and its multi-colored houses can’t be beat for almost dollhouse-like cuteness. Torcello (pictured at the right) is my favorite of the three, mainly for its seclusion and the stunning mosaics in its old cathedral.
Whatever time is left after your lagoon excursions can easily be taken up with more wandering – especially since you’re probably going to get lost a few times on your way to one place or another.
If you’ve got a working mobile phone in Italy and you like scavenger hunts, you might want to give the whaiwhai game in Venice a try – this could be especially fun for a group to play to give your wandering a little bit of structure.
Then at some point later on your second day in Venice, you’ll get on a train and wave goodbye to the crazy canal-filled city. And if you’ve done it right, you’ll already be trying to figure out when you can return.

Spanish Wine Maker Asda Sued For Having a Frog in a Wine Bottle
I just have to post this article since I find it quite funny how a frog could get into a wine bottle….
“Isolde Beesley says the small frog fell out of the bottle of Spanish wine and into her glass during a family celebration. Ms Beesley, from Leicestershire, says she has suffered stomach pains ever since the incident and has hired lawyers to pursue a claim for compensation.
Asda sued over frog in wine bottle
Asda, who took the Moscatel de Valencia wine off the shelves as a precaution while it conducted an investigation, says it has rigorous inspection procedures in its bottling plants and that it is ‘virtually impossible’ for a frog to enter a wine bottle during the bottling process.
Ms Beesley bought the wine on 23 December last year and opened it on Boxing Day. She has since handed in the frog and bottle to her local environmental health department for analysis
Asda said it was taking the case ‘very seriously’.
A spokeswoman for Asda said: ‘We have fully investigated this issue with our suppliers and found no inadequacies with the bottling process and no pests were present at the factory.’
‘We can only apologise to the customer that they had a bad experience with our wine and itis something we will watch out for in the future.’
Ms Beesley’s solicitor, Michael Connor, partner at TPS Solicitors, said:‘Mrs Beesley clearly had a contract with Asda who are under a duty by virtue of the Sale of Goods Act to make sure the wine was fit to drink.’‘Clearly, selling a bottle of wine apparently contaminated with a deadfrog makes the wine unfit for consumption.’”
As I had mentioned before in my previous post, the laws and regulations that govern the wine-making process within each region in Spain falls under the Denominacion de Origen (D.O.) system. Each designated wine-making region is essentially a D.O.. However, there are only 2 “qualified” D.O.’s within Spain, the D.O.Q. Priorat and D.O.C. Rioja. The Q and C, respectively, is Qualificada and Calificada. ”Qualificada” is practically the same as “calificada” but, in the Catalan dialect since the Priorat region lies within the Spanish state of Catalonia (surrounding Barcelona). Instead of writing this article in paragraph form, I’m just going to list the more important D.O.’s that a neophyte in Spanish wine, like myself, should understand based on the popularity of the wines produced. This is a very brief list as there are more than 60 D.O.’s in Spain.
D.O.C. Rioja – The region that produces of the famous red wines of Spain, wines from here combine a blend of the modernistic and traditional characteristics of wine, these reds are made primarily from Tempranillo but, can also use Graciano and Garnacha grapes. The aging process traditionally uses barrels consisting of oak wood.
D.O. Toro – Located near Ribera del Duero, red wines from this region seem to be the “hot,” up-and-coming wine from Spain. The red wines from here use Tinta do Toro grapes similar to Tempranillo, but darker and smaller. These grapes can age much longer than Tempranillo grapes. These wines can also have a hint of cherries or blackberries added to the wine.
D.O.Q. Priorat – Although this large region is quite old, is has only been within the last decade or two that the red wines from here have received international acclaim. Located in the southwest section of Catalonia, the traditional Grapes here are Garnacha Tinta and Cariñena. Most red wines from here are 100% Garnacha or a blend of Garnacha and Cariñena.
D.O. Ribera del Duero – Home to Spain’s most expensive wine (Vega Sicilia) this region lies just east to the Rueda D.O. off the Duero River. Wines from this region are home to some of the better wines in Spain which are based mostly on Tempranillo grapes but, are mixed with grapes grown outside of Spain.
D.O. Rias Baixas – Located in northwest Spain, their white wines are arguably the best in Spain and are produced from the Albarino grape. Albarinos are usually aged without oak and are lemony white wines that are cold-fermented to maintain freshness in their wines, a technique that was not too prevalent previously in Spain.
D.O. Rueda – This D.O. used to have a reputation of producing Sherry-like wines but is now one of the few areas well-known for their white wines. Within close proximity to the northeast of Portugal off the the Duero River, this area mostly produces Verdejo grapes. These grapes used to make their Sherry wine but, are now used to make their white wines. The white wines here must contain at least 50% Verdejo grapes. Usually, the rest contains Sauvignon Blanc.
D.O. Cava – Cava is essentially the Spanish Champagne, or sparkling wine, produced in a similar manner to Champagne but, the wine itself is more rustic. Cava sparkling wines can be produced in different regions other than Cava but, must conform to the Cava D.O.’s rules and regulations if this wine is to be produced. Cava wines consist of a combination of 3 grapes: Parellada, Viura, and Xarel.
D.O. Jerez-Xeres-Sherry – Sherry wine should really be in its own category, due to its fortification with brandy. This region in the south of Spain on the coast can only prooduce this type of wine. Several varieties of this wine exist, from “Fino” to “Palo Cortado.” I will explain the different varieties of Sherry wine more in-depth in later posts.
