Valencia - Fallas - Day1

These styrofoam sculptures are so huge! They are still being built and must be completed by Thursday. There are over 300 of them, but not all are outrageously big. The neighborhood merchants pool their advertising budgets to draw customers with a motive falla. On Monday they will all be set on fire!

Mike and Gonza and just a bit of Mel!

This is what the inside of the structures looks like.  All Styrofoam and wood.  Must make for a wonderful blaze when it is all set on fire on Sunday night!
