    WHY VALENCIA?

    ##Why Valencia? ¿Por qué Valencia? It’s a reasonable question, I suppose. Why do I, and others from around the world, choose to live here?

    A FALLAS CONVERSATION!

    A Fallas conversation between a Tourist and a Valencian! Brian: Wasn’t that ‘Fallas’ in Mission Impossible II, in that scene when Tom Cruise’s character is in Spain? I love all that fire dancing and those evil-looking hoods. Viçent: What are you talking about? That was just a ridiculous juxtaposition of Fallas and the Holy Week […]
