  Bullfighting
I have lived in Spain for about 32 years, and I have heard many times people saying: “Oh, bullfights, such a terrible and cruel thing!” I have also heard,“Bullfights should be banned!” Well, two years ago I went to see a bullfight in Alicante. I said to myself: “If I’m going to be against it, I want to see it first”. I went with my sister, who is a lover of animals. She is the one who cries when in a western movie, the horse dies, but doesn’t care about the cowboy. I can tell you, I had never seen a show like this in my life. It was a weird mixture between excitement, fear, enjoyment, cruelty and laughter. The most terrifying moment is when the bull comes into the arena. To see this huge animal, running, is the most beautiful thing. But then comes the picador and pokes him, and then the toreador puts into him the banderillas, you almost can smell the blood. Then the bull is killed with the sword, quickly, without any pain. Then they kill another bull, and then another…at least 5 bulls. When the show was over, some thoughts came to me, “Did I like it? Yes, Did I feel sorry for the bull? Yes.” So am I against or in favour?
   
  Submarine ahoy!!!
“Down periscope!” “Launch torpedoes!” “Aye, aye, Sir!!” are words that we have heard many times, especially in the movies. In fact, submarines have become a genre of their own in films. Movies like “The Hunt for Red October”, “K-19, The Widowmaker”, or the most famous “Das Boot”, all involve action inside a submarine. Now you can have the opportunity to visit a real submarine.
   
  ‘Los Rostros de Maria’ Exhibition
Until the 29 August, the Sala de Exposiciones in the old RENFE station in Torrevieja is host to ‘Los Rostros de Maria’, which translates into English as ‘The faces of Mary’. This exhibition houses many paintings and statutes of ‘The Virgin Mary’; with the artists’ own personal interpretation of how she should be portrayed. The exhibition is on Monday’s through to Sundays from 10am until 1.30pm and then again evenings from 6pm to 10pm. Entrance is free, and if you wish to get a way from the hustle and bustle of Torrevieja in the middle of a hot summer, then you will find a visit here will be both calming and cooling.

  Saffron
The story of how saffron came to be commercially produced in Novelda is rather romantic.It all started when Manolico Alberola, a poor peasant from Novelda who could only speak rough Valenciano, and some other men from the village travelled to France in the early twentieth century. The France’s wine crop had suffered a devastating disease and the French looked to Spain and Italy to supply their wine needs.
