First visit

I first visited Valencia (since a long time ago) for the VT Valencia Meeting (see members amelia40, pginer, kunisada, also carmela71, el_holandes, jinwenwang, petit_prince, phred1910, yumyum, dila and SirRichard -maybe I forgot somebody- and some locals). That was on March 7th-9th, just when valencians prepare for the Fallas festivals

Second visit

Well, had a nice time, so next weekend I just head back to Valencia, to revisit some friends, and see the Fallas. More paellas, more friends, and, of course, more party!!!
Saturday was "la plantà", when this big sculptures are built on their final place, just in the middle of the streets, awaiting for their tragical end (being burned in a few days).
Just to figure out how big are them, try to see that man still working on, in the middle of the picture... the top is about 8 stories high!!!

Third visit

Just kidding... but one of these days... #8o)
