  Ambassadors' Parade
by andal13

I was walking down Calle Mayor on a Thursday morning, when suddenly appeared some old-fashioned knights and carriages... I asked a policeman what was that, and he told me it was the Ambassadors' Parade: that day, Ambassadors go to Royal Palace and greet the King.

Iba caminando por la Calle Mayor una mañana de jueves, cuando súbitamente aparecieron varios jinetes vestidos a la antigua usanza, y carruajes... Le pregunté a un policía de qué se trataba, y me dijo que era el Desfile de los Embajadores: ese día los Embajadores van al Palacio Real y presentan sus repetos al Rey.
