Would you Adam and Eve it

Last weekend, in Rojales, they celebrated their romería for San Isidro and as part of the celebrations they organised traditional games for the children:-

Carreras de sacos, rotura de vasijas con un palo de madera y los ojos vendados y carreras con huevos sobre cucharas.

In other words sack races, breaking a pot with a stick whilst blindfolded and egg and spoon races.

The only thing missing were three legged races. Do you remember those?


No Nike tops and trainers in those days; ordinary school shirt, shorts and white pumps.

I actually came first in a three legged race when I was a child. It was the only sporting thing I ever did win!
