A New Fiesta

They´re putting on the first Festival del Indiano in Ribadeo this weekend.  Los Indianos were those who emigrated to the Americas in the 19th century, Cuba, Venezuela, Argentina, et. al., and came back rich the frst part of the 20th century.  They built ostentatious houses in Asturias and Galicia, set up businesses and some actually did quite a bit of philanthropic work like funding schools once back in the old country.


With so many ¨medieval¨ activities, it´s nice to see a change.  I hope everyone gets out their white linen and makes it a rousing success.
