Fuengirola, Fashionable and Fair / Fuengirola, Moda y Feria

FUENGIROLA DID NOT disappoint with the colorful costumes and flamboyant fashions at the World People‘s Fair. But it wasn’t alway easy to tell the difference between the participants and the spectators.


FUENGIROLA NO DECEPCIONÓ con los coloridos trajes y modas extravagantes en la Feria Internacional de los Pueblos. Pero no siempre fue fácil distinguir la diferencia entre los participantes y los espectadores.

As far as I know, these two were NOT in the parade. I’ve seen them around town at times dressed exactly the same. But, maybe they were rehearsing.
Por lo que sé, estos dos NO estaban en el desfile. Los he visto por la ciudad a veces vestidos exactamente igual. Pero, tal vez estaban ensayando.
And something equally subtle for the ride home? A strange sight even for Fuengirola.
¿Y algo igualmente sutil para el viaje a casa? Una visión extraña incluso para Fuengirola.

  1. What a FUN time! Everyone looks like they were having a ball….with the exception maybe of that poor woman’s feet!
    Loved the series of the woman ‘whirling dervish’….so colourful. Nice job, Mitch!

    1. Jim,
      That dancing, twirling woman made my heart sing. She was having a ball.

  2. Marching to the beat of his own drummer. Looks like fun and something for everyone. The Pink limo should have gone through the crusher long ago.

    1. David,
      I think the limo was ready for the crusher when someone shipped it here.

    1. Anne Marie,
      It was more fuchsia than pink, and kind of unsettled my stomach.

  3. My love for color makes me so mad-jealous how much there is in your neck of the woods. Oh what lovely clothes!
    Thank you for the day’s uplift.

    1. Urdió,
      It didn’t get consumed, just delayed. You’re welcome. Thank YOU!
