The medieval fair, the pillow fight
On the way back from the Museum of Modern Art – new exhibitions of Matta, sculptures of Degas, and the sculptures of Balasar Lobo, and more – we wandered through the old part of the old town called Carmen and into a medieval fair.
Booths with candles, cakes and hand creams. A roped off section of birds of prey including several owls. Arabic themes- a belly dancer with two musicians walked through the narrow streets and tiny plaza; a camel or two riding youngsters on their backs. Processions of ‘princesses’ on horseback.
Susan happened upon a pillow fight in the Plaza de la Virgen. Huge pillows and big crowds, parents swatting children who swatted parents. This was part of a health fair.
All this just a few blocks from the Wine and Food Fair.
I thought the weeks following Fallas would be boring.
