It’s still hot hot hot!!! and the children (as mentioned in my last post) are still glued to the pool… but we did manage to drag them away last weekend for the annual foam party in Cómpeta.
We’re all big kids in our house and we love a good fiesta de espuma. At this time of year all the villages in the Axarquia celebrate their annual feria which involves a chaotic mixture of flamenco, paella, horses, lots of drinking and dancing, and a crazy foam party in the main square (or in Canillas de Aceituno’s case, the playground).
Cómpeta’s annual feria was last weekend. Sedella’s is this weekend (1,2,3 August). Canillas de Aceituno is the following weekend (8,9,10 August). If you are organised and are willing to take on the windy mountain roads of the Axarquia, you could probably manage to get one in almost every weekend from early July to mid September.
