* Happy Guy Fawkes Day!

We´ve had several questions lately asking about celebrations of the English holiday Guy Fawkes Day (or Night) on the Costa del Sol. Unfortunately, not much can be found. You can read the comments here and please add to them if you have any information.

In case you are unaware of this holiday, this is the Wikipedia description:

"Guy Fawkes Night, also known as Bonfire Night, is an annual celebration held on the evening of 5 November, and marks the failed Gunpowder Plot of 5 November 1605. The occasion is celebrated primarily in Great Britain, although some former British colonies also mark the occasion. Festivities are centered on the use of fireworks and the lighting of bonfires."

It´s a beautiful November morning and after five years of living in Marbella I am still amazed at how fabulous the weather is.
