Safer than the bulls at Pamplona

This year's "La Tomatina", the tomato festival at Buñol, took place on Wednesday.

The little town of Buñol, which is 15 minutes from Valencia, gets inundated with up to 30,000 visitors who spend the two hours that are allowed throwing 125,000 kilos of tomatoes at each other.

They probably need to spend the next two hours hosing themselves and the streets down.

Apparently nobody has been injured in the 62 years that the festival has been held.

PS I obviously did not take these photos!
