After arriving in Valencia on Tuesday I meet Leslie from the bed opposite mine. We went that evening to see a Flamenco show at a bar called Radio city. There was a live band and a male flamenco dancer who was flippin awesome.Wednesday we went exploring the city centre and to the Mercado Central and that night a group of us from the hostel went to watch the fireworks that marked the start of celebrations for Valencia day. I began videoing them and they seem to go on and on and on and then they stopped for 5 minutes and went on and on again. But I couldn't bring myself to stop recording in case the best was still to come. So now I have a 22 minute and then a 26 minute set of firework displays recorded on my camera. Lucky me! I think some severe editing will be required for those.Yesterday Leslie, Richard, Michael, 2 Dutch girls and 2 other guys went for a day trip to Sagunt to see the ruins of Saguntum, a Roman town from 219 BC. On the way down, after all that walking, we stopped for some well deserved seafood Paella.In the evening there was a parade which we went to watch but bailed early because a soon as it started the rain began pouring down. So we escaped to a café where we enjoyed some nice tapas. Once the rain subsided a little we came back to the hostel and cooked ourselves a big communal feast with everything and anything we could find. It was oh so tasty!We decided being so well feed we were up for some flamenco and so ran through the rain… because we couldn't get a taxi. In the end we were drenched so we found the nearest warmth which happened to be a restaurant to have a few drinks. Once the rain had stopped we walked to Radio city for a bit of a boogy to cap the night off.Today the weather is still overcast so I have had a quiet one just going to the Mercado central again for more food supplies and to the Cathedral where they have a chalice that they claim to be the holy grail. Apart from that I have been sitting back and updating this journal for all my fans. As always there will be more to come.
