If you haven’t been to Spain then let MAU be your unofficial tour guide. Megan and Jojo landed in Barcelona and headed down to Valencia for a whirlwind of an event, La Tomatina. At this festival “Tens of thousands of participants come from all over the world to fight in a harmless battle where more than one hundred metric tons of over-ripe tomatoes are thrown in the streets...huge trucks haul the bounty of tomatoes into the center of the town, Plaza del Pueblo. The signal for the beginning of the fight is firing of the cannon, and the chaos begins.” -LaTomatina.org. Its If you don’t like small spaces or crowds than this is not the event for you but trust me it is a once in a lifetime opportunity that is truly unforgettable. We don’t have any photos from that event because you cannot bring your phones of cameras in unless you want to risk it getting covered in tomatoes.
After that it was a much more relaxing trip. We traveled to Madrid and down to Rhonda where we spent a few days eating paella, visiting wineries and of course taking photos. Rhonda is famous for its views over the El Tajo gorge. The Puente Nuevo is a huge tri stone arched bridge that stands tall over the gorge. The bridge joins the old Moorish town and the newer, El Mercadillo parts of the city. It is, by far in a way, Ronda’s most famous landmark.
