On the same weekend of the color run, on my beloved town it was the medieval fair. It's nothing too fancy, I have to admit, still it's something that's unusual on my town. And it's a great time to see the town full of people and of life.
I love to go to this little fairs, because there always some sellers with amazing handmade work. And this time, there were really great crafters! There were people that had gold jewellery, people that made clothes and shoes from the medieval times, there where even one tent that was only selling hats from those times. Amazing! There were a lot of food, but not so medieval it's true ( I don't see where a crepe with chocolat it's medieval).
The air was full of smells, just like on those times, but not so bad. I believe if we were back to the medieval times would be way worst. The smell that was more predominant was the smell of incenses.. hmm :)
I've gotta warn you about the bad quality of the photos. You see I bought (again....) my little compact camera, that went to the color run and now it's full of powder on the lens. I've gotta clean it up, but I don't know how. If any of you guys now how, please tell me!
This year there were a lot of tents with medicinal herbs and tea! I bought tea from a nice spanish seller that told me this: tea whatever people may say that it's to this desease or to help loose weight, it's bullshit. The tea it's only for the flavour. Now, medicinal herbs, those yes do something. I bought him 4 teas : black tea with coconut, rooibos with vanilla, rose petals, and one called " Thousand nights of sleep". I don't what's on that mix but it taste so good!
It was in this street that it was a seller that painted on stones to use as necklaces or keychains. I bought one necklace for me and later one for Sofia S.. We love purple and we love dragons, on a necklace it's perfect for us. If wanna check out the work, see on this facebook page.

Every year there is one tent that it's always there in the same place: the birds tent. I love this tent because we can be so close to the birds, but by the other side, I think this shouldn't be like this. It's a great stress to the birds to be like 3 or 4 nights in exposition, with a lot of people looking at them, making noises ( children screaming), with lights pointing at them. It's too much.
This big one that comes next it's Eurasian Eagle-Owl (Bubo bubo), but we call it Bufo Real. It's the biggest of this genre that exist on Europe, and on the planet I think. This one was so quiet, so happy when it's owner would pet him. I wanna to take a phot with the Bufo looking at me to show you his big sweet eyes, but it seems like he was shy. So I only have photos with him on profile. Perhaps, he thinks its his best side :)
