cycles fireworks and madonnas

so in less than one week we have had cycles, madonnas and fireworks in our streets of vejer – it truly is a festive and active town;  the last nights of vejer ended with the final of the flamenco dancers, a procession through the streets with the statue of the madonna and a midnight finale of fireworks, which we watched from our roof terrace.   the next morning the fair with its bumper cars and popcorn stands were gone and the barriers for la vuelta – spain’s biggest cycle event – were erected.  robert found us a good spot to watch the tens of cyclists arriving into town for that days last stage – at the top of the steep winding hill – which meant that they were a little bit more spaced out and at a speed that we could actually see them.  i never thought that i would ever be so excited seeing so many fit men in lycra!
