Last night, as we were watching the special service for the Queen's official birthday at St Paul's, we could hear a band playing in the street below. The band paraded down the road and then stopped outside the red house where they continued to play. A little later, there was a salvo or fireworks set off on the vacant land owned by the council. Further salvos followed and we could still hear the band playing. That lasted until just before midnight when the party seemed to be drawn to a halt.
I'm sure our friends Sheila and Robert will be able to enlighten us as to what the occasion was. After all, they live opposite the red house and are friendly with the owners.
You have to admire the Spanish ability to party in a big way - no half measures when it comes to a celebration.
