This morning, we went to the monthly Sunday rastrillo at Fernán Pérez, a neighbouring village just a few minutes drive inland from Las Negras. It was similar to the monthly Sunday market in Las Negras but we felt the ambience was better as all the stalls were crammed into the village square and we saw many familiar faces.
At about midday a troupe of street entertainers in rat costumes appeared from a house nearby.
They entered the square and entertained the crowd with music and theatre.
A couple of them took a breather and squeezed in either side of Margaret on a bench.
The group engaged with the crowd, encouraging people to join them in dance and —
— involved the children as well.
The public appreciated the show.
The rats are apparently German. Last month they were chickens! We will go again next month (first Sunday of each month) to see what form their next appearance will take.
