  1. Dearest Marina,
    What a colorful parade! Love the tassels the horses wear and the ladies side-saddle riding! Must be a special festivity. The striped drapes in that gazebo also look heavenly.
    Hugs to you and happy Ascension Day.

    1. It's the main festivity in Jerez. Horses and wine are very important in the city and the main reason to visit us, the third reason is Flamenco. We recibe people from all over the world to know our horses, our Flamenco and to taste our Sherry

  2. Good Afternoon Marina,
    What a wonderfully vibrant and colourful festival. The young lady in the photograph pouring a that sherry? it is a really special way of pouring and must take hours of practise.
    I have really enjoyed seeing these photographs....just beautiful.
    Best Wishes

    1. Thank you Daphne! The girl is pouring Sherry. People who do this is called "Venenciador" because they pour the wine with the "Venencia" that is very useful to take off the wine from the barrel.

  3. Oh what a fun! I love the horses and the beautifully dressed people, how wonderful that you can attend such and event!

    1. Thank you Cindy! I hope you can come some day.

  4. Que fotos más bonitas, sobre todo la del alumbrado. A ver si puedo llegarme a echar un ratito. Bezozzzzz, guapaaaaaa, y que disfrutes de esa feria.

    1. Gracias, Tu estás supercerquita, no tienes excusa.

  5. Dear Marina - the festival looks stunning - wonderful decorations, horses, and the outfits that are being worn. It must be a very colourful and happy time for all of the people in Jerez.

    1. Hi Rosemary! It's a very special week. The beginning of this fair was the horses sell.
      The first privilege to organize a commercial fair was conceded by the King Alfonso X The Wise after the reconquer in 1264.

  6. No imaginas lo que disfrutaría ahí...lo que veo me gusta y me dan ganas de verlo en directo, y porqué no? tomarme un vinito de tu tierra, que con tu compañía y la de tu familia me sabría a gloria...
    Estupendo reportaje Marina, un abrazo a todos amiga.

    1. Pues ya sabes Remei es cuestión de organización, nosotros solemos ir en plan tranquilo así que no te preocupes por nada, hay muchas maneras de vivir la feria y en el caso de la de Jerez está totalmente abierta al visitante, y es bastante cómoda. Espero que algún día puedas venir.
      un abrazo

  7. Oh, Marina, this is just beautiful! The horses, the riders, the beautiful decorations and clothing - all so festive! Thank you for sharing with us! xoxo

Bohemian day - Un día bohemio

I am a little bit odd, you already know me. Sometimes I like that everything is in the correct place  and sometimes I enjoy seeing my untidy cushions. Today I have a bohemian day.
Soy un poco rarita, ya me conocéis, A veces me gusta que todo esté en el lugar correcto y a veces disfruto viendo mis cojines desordenados. Hoy, tengo un día bohemio.

Sometimes I love white  and luminous walls  and sometimes  I would love having  a stone wall at home.
A veces me encantan las paredes  blancas y luminosas  y a veces me encantaría tener  una pared de piedra en casa. 

I would love lose myself  among colourful cushions but some days  I love white ones.
Me encantaría perderme  entre cojines de colores pero algunos días  me encantan los blancos.

Baking at home - Horneando en casa

Everybody knows that industrial pastry has ingredientes,
 which are not especially healthy, but sometimes,
you would do anything to eat one or two of them.
That's the reason because you would have
to bake at home,
you will add less calories
 and healthier ingredients.
It's not easy at the beginning.
I used to bake very ugly cakes,
sometimes flat ones, 
sometimes huge ones. 
But now, 20 years later, 
I have improved a little bit.
Do you know what I love?
I love bake with friends,
 I teach them and they teach me.

Todos sabemos que la pastelería industrial  contiene ingredientes,  que no son especialmente saludables,  pero a veces harías lo que fuera  por comerte uno o dos. Esa es la razón por la que deberías  hornear en casa, añadirás menos calorías  e ingredientes más saludables. No es fácil al principio. Yo solía hacer pasteles bastante feos, a veces planos, a veces enormes. Pero ahora, 20 años más tarde,  he mejorado un poquito. ¿Sabéis lo que me encanta? Me encanta hornear con amigos,  yo les enseño y ell…

Happy New Year everybody!!! ¡¡¡Feliz Año Nuevo a todos!!!
