The very last second last Sunday I decided to run out and do watch the morning procession of the Virgen de los Desamparados, the most important religious figure of Valencia. Thankfully I know all the little streets to cut through to make it on time and claim a perfect spot between the Plaza del Virgen and the main entrance of the Cathedral, where the virgin figure will be transported to from the Basilica.
It's pretty intense, because it gets very crowded, especially where I was standing. And on top of it, parents are trying to toss toddlers against the Virgin, check out the twins at the end of the video, it's pretty wild!!!
