Happy New Year

We saw the new year in with the extended faimly. The photo is my son, going mad with what the Spanish call “mother-in-law killers”.
They always have fireworks here at New Year. We weren’t very close to any displays, but the house is built on the side of a hill, and we could see lots of displays from a distance: La Polvacera, San António, Zumacal, Santa Cruz, Concepción, Palmasol, and San José.
Fortunately we live almost next door, so nobody had to drive. Consequently I spent most of New Year’s Day recovering. But it was well worth it.
