THANK YOU to all the new readers of this Blog! I am thrilled with the vastly increased numbers! According to the stats, I am picking up a big audience in Russia.... go figure....
So today we decided to try again with the Multicines movie passes at the only movie they allow us to use them on, "Victor Frankenstein", all in Spanish, only at 1:40pm at Millennium Mall, Monday to Thursday. Millennium is not very old and the theatre is very modern, but incredibly uncomfortable. We had popcorn and a drink and enjoyed the movie, but we were so very happy to get out of those chairs.
Another glorious December sunny day to enjoy the long wait for the #15 bus. When we got home we decided to check out the many effigies and mannequins for sale on the street near the roundabout.
The cloth effigy, with or without optional mask, is meant to hold your list of everything bad that happened to you in 2015, then, at the stroke of midnight on Dec 31 you light up the effigy along with your list. There is also a tradition of jumping the burning effigy several times but this is not recommended with flammable clothing...
The other papier-mache dolls are for decoration wherever you desire. Both the effigies and the dolls are frequently seen adorning vehicles of all sorts. They all seem to be too big for Toxic though. Maybe I should get a big-boobied effigy to ride behind me...??
I hope you enjoy the photos (from the small Samsung - not good quality). That was the day's excitement, Cheers, Al
