On saturday morning a few of us went to a typical "horchata" place, where we had horchata, liquid chocolate, churros and "buñuelos".
At 14:00 we met the other part of the group, who had been out last night and, obviously, woke up a bit later. We watched (hear I'd say) a "mascleta", 20 minutes of reeeeeally noisy fireworks in the Town Hall Square.
For lunch we all went to "La Piula", a nice typical restaurant where we had some "raciones" (croquetas, allipebre, pantumaca...) and a WIDE SELECTION OF PAELLAS (rice dish). They prepared 6 kinds of paellas and we tasted each one of them. For desser, strawberries with orange juice.
After lunch we went to the Natural park of L'Albufera, a sweet water lake near the coast, where you can see birds and admire the landscapes.
We took a boat trip around with a guide who explaines technical details and Pilar who translated it all (thanx, Pilar!)
For dinner we went to "La Pitanza", a restaurant in El Carmen quartier, near Plaza del Tossal.
There we had a wide range of raciones and drinks.
On sunday we woke up late after a crazy night and visited the aquarium "L'Oceanografic" in the new complex named "Arts & Science City" in the old bed of the river.
You need at least 4 hours to see the wide variety of fishes and marine ecosystems, housed in various buildings and lakes around, like a theme park.
We ended the sunday at Alboraya, a little village outside Valencia where they have the best HORCHATA (a white drink made out of a little nut called "chufa") in town.
Time for farewells and goodbyes...
