You’ll never guess where I was these spring holidays … Murcia! Early in the morning, my cousin and I took the bus to the town centre.

We went to Murcia that day (1 st Tuesday after Easter holidays) because it was the “Bando de la Huerta” in Murcia. There was a big party there, and people dressed up just like people used to do in the 21 th century. There were a lot of activities too!

For example: The election of the Queen of the Garden - consisted of passing certain general culture and communication tests, and if you pass them, you’ll take the Crown ofAzahar” (lemon blossom).

At night, we went to the “Barracas”-they were establishments where you could eat the typical Murcia food, for example: Black pudding and sausages. (There was a lot of meat!).

We didn’t stay until very late because we were very tired, so we went home early.

It was a fantastic day! We had the best time!
