Lighting up the sky in Torre

image There might be an economic crisis still looming in Spain but that did not stop Torrevieja from celebrating the night of San Juan in style.

Heralding in summer with bonfires and fireworks is traditional in our part of Spain. Let’s face it, it doesn’t take much of an excuse for Spaniards to set off fireworks.

This year, the town council had organised a Piromusical extravaganza – music and fireworks together. It took a ton of powder and 80,000 watts of sound to fill the night with colour and sound for 15 minutes.

I bet is was spectacular, I just wish we could have been there. After less than a week, I am starting to get homesick!
