SwittersB & the Tomatina (Chiste)

I am just back from Spain. I had intended to attend the running of the bulls event. But, age and injuries precluded that. I decided to attend the Tomatina event. I came away with a new appreciation for how hard an under ripe tomato can feel against your face. Also, I came away with new salsa recipes.

Your view of me is obscured by the torrent of tomatoes. I am standing right in front of the guy with the funky argyle print T. A chica is trying to remove the pulp from my nostrils. Reuters pic (Chiste)

“Revellers on a truck throw tomatoes into the crowd during the annual “Tomatina” (tomato fight) in the Mediterranean village of Bunol, near Valencia, August 31, 2011. The origin of the tomato fight is disputed – everyone in Bunol seems to have a favourite story – but most agree it started around 1940…” Reuters

    Buenas tardes.
    Lo primero decir que no se nada de ingles, espero que tú sepas algo de español (siempre queda el google traslate).
    Te leo desde España desde hace unos meses. Veo que has estado por aquí hace poco y me pregunto si has aprovechado para pescar brown durante esos días y, de ser a así que te a parecido la experiencia..
    Un saludo desde Guadalajara, España.
    Buenas pesca.

      Hello Tachu,

      Hola Amigo
      En realidad, yo estaba tratando de escribir algo gracioso / chiste. Nunca he estado en España, ni pesca de trucha marrón. Me gustaría poder viajar a España para pescar, tomar fotos, disfrutar de la comida y disfrutar de las personas. Gracias por responder …. espero que esto se traduce lo suficiente como para ser comprensible. Mil Gracias, SwittersB
