On Saturday morning we wandered into the old town of Rota, where my engineer companions were intrigued by a cement mixer churning something different, which people were spreading onto the street. After some minutes of observation and questioning we uncovered that the locals were grinding salt and mixing it with dyes, to make coloured salt which was being spread in chalked outlines on the pavement, like a colour-by-numbers book.
This was intriguing. We then tried to discover why this was happening.
It turned out that we had found ourselves in Rota for the weekend of the Fiestas Patronales. This meant that as well as plenty of sea and sun there would also be a bunch of free parades and concerts. Needless to say, we were stoked.
