I'm from Valencia, in Spain. Here, we have a very famous holiday called 'Fallas'. In the Fallas, there are groups who build carton monuments, a kind of sculptures full of critiques to our goverment, etc. The last day, this sculptures are burnt.
One of the most traditional events during this holiday are the 'mascletà' a big firecracker that takes place in the main square of the city.
This picture was taken in one of those 'mascletàs'. I preferred the people to the firecracker...I thought it was so interesting to see the people faces living this amazing and thunderous event.
