More testing

That Eurofighter was back up over the Vega Baja. This time though it wasn't breaking the sound barrier. You can see the convoluted path it took from the vapour trails in this picture.


How do they do it?

The first low cost, high-speed train (AVE) between Madrid and Murcia will start on December 10 with fares from as little as €7.

The ‘Avlo’ service by public rail company Renfe will take three and a half hours with stops in Orihuela, Elche, Alicante, Villena, Albacete and Cuenca.

The low-cost option will complement the regular service.

It costs more than that to go from Greaby on the Wirral to Liverpool!!

That was different

I had been tipped off by my friend Christopher that the concert this year would contain pasodobles composed my local musicians.  He didn't tell me though that each piece would be directed by different, distinguished musicians from the town. 

You can find an album of my photos from last night in the sidebar as usual. 

And for those who missed it or want to relive the moment, here is the link to my audio recording:

A must for your diary

I was excited to see the work of my friends in Big Arte last night. As the paintings went up on the walls, they exceeded my expectations. Along with a variety of styles and expression, there was technical skill and imagination in abundance. The exhibition, Music and Painting opens to the public on Saturday at the time of the concert for Santa Cecilia. It will then be in the Sala Polivalente from Sunday onwards. I doubt you will be disappointed.

What was that noise?

This afternoon (11/21/2023), around 5:30 p.m., two Eurofighter Typhoon FG4.4 aircraft, belonging to the United Kingdom, have been testing in the southeast of the Iberian Peninsula. The blue lines on the map represent the route they have taken. So what you heard was an aircraft breaking the sound barrier. 

Come and see the fruits of our labour

In total, 15 artists from Big Arte will be exhibiting 22 of their paintings in the "Music & Painting" exhibition. 

We will be mounting them on Thursday ready for the new musicians arrival on Friday night. The exhibition will then be open to the public on Saturday during the Concert for Santa Cecilia. 

From Sunday 26th the paintings will be on view in the Multipurpose Room (Auditorium Francisco Grau). 

For the weekend
