In late 2006, hubby and I spent a long weekend in Almeria, Spain. Plenty of red wine and lovely tapas was consumed on the afternoon of New Year's Eve, but we didn't know that the whole town shut down for the actual New Year celebrations. Not one bar or restaurant was open to see the New Year in. We spent the evening in our hotel room with a bottle of cheap plonk and watched the fireworks out of the window. Memorable for the wrong reasons. Anyhow, here's my sketch book pages from that weekend.
