...because of the simplicity of a Christmas window.....

Baby Jesus, on an outdoor coffee table.

No lights, no signs, just baby Jesus. Maybe it is just a clever sign that they were all at siesta and that is why they are shut at 1530 (which is usual). However he does look lonely...

...because there is always an angel watching over us...

...and if not an angel...a giant GAMBA (prawn)...

..which just leads to many questions that I don't know the answer to!

...because you never know who you will see on a quiet night out for dinner... our favourite restaurant...

..just over there... 
ooooohhh... La Pantoja!!!

... as seen in every ¡Hola! magazine (every week!)

"La Pantoja" is the Madonna of Spain (although less modern) and she happened to come in to the restaurant that we were dining in.  It is our favourite local restaurant (literally next door).  The blinds were pulled, there was flurry of activity...and her and her entourage entered.  I only knew who she was because I read ¡Hola! every week (for my Spanish!). My spanish professor/friend thought it was an excellent opportunity to practice my formal spanish, however, I blatantly refused, and so my friend then needed to ask for autographs for his friend  (me!) who (apparently) is a fan..!!!
