Tomatina tomato mahem!


Is this the craziest fiesta in Spain? Anywhere in the world for that matter? This morning, between the hours of 11 a.m. and midday, 40,000 ‘guerrillas’ pelted each other with 110 tonnes of tomatoes in the Valencian town of Buñol! Full marks to Graham McLellan, author of the above photo, for risking his camera in that environment… it doesn’t seem the ideal place to be wandering around with anything electronic! Well, same time, same place next year if you’re fond of soft, red, over-ripe fruit!

Update: A messy video of the after-effects!
