Saturday night at the Fiesta


Reyes Pandora outside Black

The annual fiesta in Las Negras continues and we strolled down to the village last night to see what was going on. No fancy dress this year but we encountered Reyes Pandora, who always likes to dress up, outside the bar Black.



Reyes opted for the gypsy look together with fake chicken and ham.


Anna and Sergio

We had a drink at bar Black in the Centro Comercial. Anna and Sergio, the owners, are always welcoming.


Simone and Txema behind the bar at Nomad

We then filled up with one of Simone’s healthy burgers at her bar Nomad.


Beating out the rhythm

On the promenade we encountered these Senegalese lads who were beating out their rhythms and drew an appreciative audience who joined in clapping and dancing.


Orquesta Tívoli

Approaching midnight the Orquesta Tívoli began a concert on the stage.


Dancing into the early hours

They performed typical Spanish popular dance music which had the crowds dancing until the early hours.


About Margaret Merry

I grew up in Falmouth, Cornwall, England where, after leaving Falmouth High School, I spent a year at Falmouth School of Art. Then followed three years at Hornsey College of Art in London where I obtained a Diploma in Art and Design. I then spent a post-graduate year at the West of England College of Art in Bristol where I gained an Art Teacher?s Diploma and a Certificate in Education of the University of Bristol. I lived and worked in Truro for over 30 years and became one of Cornwall's most popular artists. My paintings have been exhibited in New York, Tokyo, Paris and London and have been bought by collectors from all over the world. I have published 4 books which became local bestsellers - 'The Natural History of a Westcountry City', 'Margaret Merry's Cornish Garden Sketchbook', 'Sea & Sail' and 'Tidal Reaches'. In 2002 I moved to Spain and now live pn a small farmer the town of Alhabia in the Alpujarra Almeriense in the Province of Almeria. I now get my inspiration from the dramatic scenery of Andalucia and its old cities, towns and villages which I usually capture in watercolour. I also enjoy portraiture and figurative art, particularly nudes and dancers. For these paintings I use artists' soft pastels. I have written and illustrated 3 children's books - The Wise Old Boar, The Lonely Digger and The Adventure of Princess The Pony - which have been published in the USA.
