Spanish Penitents

Penitents wear gowns and conical hoods – a tradition that was meant to maintain their anonymity – for the haunting processions as they carry life-size effigies of Jesus Christ and the Virgin Mary through city streets accompanied by dramatic drum beats and mournful music.

IS IT TIME TO BUYING PROPERTY IN CUBA

The new real estate market in Cuba.

“It’s an extraordinarily important first step but it really is just a first step”

For a number of years in the early 1990 Cuban law permitted the construction of some condominium style buildings where foreigners could buy an apartment.  Those who bought these are now able to sell them to other foreigners who are not residents in Cuba. After half a century in which they could only swap houses in a creaky, bureaucratic and often corrupt state-run process known as permuta (exchange), which involved finding two properties of roughly equal value and then getting state approval to transfer the title, Cubans are relishing their new-found economic freedom.

Celebration Time.

What is San Isidro,a unique chance to discover some of the most authentic customs of Madrid, a major capital city which still conserves all its popular traditions intact. Throughout the weekend of the holiday you’ll find concerts and street parades winding through the city centre. What’s more, many of the local inhabitants dress up in the typical chulapo and goyesco costumes, all accompanied by the strains of the music of the chotis (the traditional dance of Madrid).
