It is spring but without opening party in Granada.
As I have told you in one of my previous posts it is usual to celebrate the arrival of the spring with a big party in Granada which takes place in the area known as “botellodromo” (it is an area of open-air drinking session). This area is prepared for people to go to spend the day, drink, dance and have fun. This year the spring party has been forbidden, the “botellodromo” has been walled in and guarded by the police. There are opinions of all sorts…
Personally, I think that it is a good party, not as a “macrobotellon” but as a party that it has to be done wherever; because the bad side of the party which is the dirt and the excessive consumption of alcohol have a solution, but a day without enjoy the sun and laughs not.
I have not drank since the 10th of January and possibly if the party had taken place yesterday I would have gone and I would have not drunk alcohol. It had been enough seeing your friends and people enjoy with their costumes.
I think that if events such as Holy Week have their space, this should have it as well.
Many of the persons that have still wanted to go to this party are going to the dragon party, party which I will tell you about in my next post.
Enjoy the Saturday.
