Today, is Three Kings Day in Spain (and other places around the World). It celebrates the day on which the Three Wise Men arrived in Bethlehem bringing gifts for baby Jesus.

Whilst the UK suffers extreme weather conditions, we in Roquetas de Mar have enjoyed a lovely warm sunny day.

This morning, my wife and I went for a walk along Aguadulce seafront and we then had breakfast alfresco at La Boheme restaurant.

Later, we enjoyed a marvellous concert on channel TVE2. It featured ballet and opera from the New Mariinsky Theatre in St Petersburg. Placido Domingo, Anna Netrekbo and Olga Borodina were just some of the artists featured. Valery Gergiev conducted the orchestra.

It was still warm and sunny in the afternoon so lunch was spent on the balcony of our apartment in Roquetas de Mar.
