Managed to get to Nerja in Andelucia earlier this month for the ‘Entierro del Bogueron’ or Burial of the Anchovy (although it’s often referred to as the burial of the Sardine). Frankly this is a somewhat bizarre tradition but one that seems to be really rather old and is seen throughout Spain. In Nerja a large decorated (fake) Anchovy is paraded through the streets with all manner of pageantry until it reaches one of the towns central beaches, La Calahonda, where it’s blown up. Everyone dresses up and parties for three days solid! Anyway , here's one of my shots from the parade.
