I am back in Spain for another year. I will continue to do updates like I did all last year.

Traditional Jota of Aragon

This is a clip of a dance that I saw here on the 5th of October.


  1. OK, now you have to learn all of those steps because we already know that you can play the castanets. I'm curious to hear about what their native dress looks like since we didn't get a close up of these women. You should have seen Nieves dressed up like a Gallega the other day since she had a costume from her daughter's childhood. Ada wore your flamenco outfit and I wore Faith's. Devon had on your Cuban baseball shirt and he wore an Obama mask. I also took in one of the embroidered Curacao dresses but it didn't end up being worn. The South African basket was in my office. The photos look terrific!

  2. Was that planned or do they just break out into dance, you knowm like our break dancing??? Enjoy every minute of your journey. Later, Lisa

  3. Ha, no it was planned. It was for the feast day of the patron saint of the town. I was late about getting the video up. In the future I will be more timely with any videos I take, I promise.
