    Here is today's procession of the INmaculada Concepcion being carried by young girls out of the Church of Nuestra Senora del Carmen.

    Yet another holiday - second one this week here and we are only on Tuesday!

    Puts the scuppers on organising anything in a short space of time!

    The Carol singing is coming on nicely, although I have refused to translate some of the verses on the grounds that it's obsolete and archaic vocabulary.

    @TheoGriff that reminds me, a couple of years ago I got to sing Hark the Herald Angels Sing in Chinese - that was actually rather moving.

    I rather like some of the archaic wordings

    Been out today to see if there was a procession or summat - what's a fiesta without a procession but nothing to see, just loads of folks having lunch overlooking the sea on a balmy day - 'twas rather pleasant

    Celebrated big style in Lyons - or used to be when I lived here a long time ago. Super city.
