Espantapájaros









The past weekend we went to the village of Serrada, to participate in the Day of the Scarecrow, driven by Alberto Sobrino, member of the cultural Satellite Collectiv, and year after year brings together more people. 
Children and adults, for hours unleashing their creativity by creating all kinds of creatures that for eleven months will be in a field near the village.
Perhaps the most exciting moment was to plant the scarecrows, because we had to fight against a strong wind that presaged rain and some clouds, which gave the evening a dramatic light.
But fighting the wind was easy after enjoying the Aguinaldo (typical Serrada's rice dish), with which we were rewarded for our hard work,  and a couple of hours in the local swimming pool.
 If you've never made ​​a scarecrow I invite you to try, it's worth it!
*****************************************
El fin de semana pasado fuimos al pueblo de Serrada a participar en el Día del Espantapájaros, impulsado por Alberto Sobrino, miembro del Colectivo Satélite y que año tras año reúne a más personas.
Niños y adultos, durante horas dando rienda suelta a su creatividad creando todo tipo de criaturas que durante once meses estarán en un campo cercano al pueblo.
Quizá el momento más emocionante fué plantar los espantapájaros, porque tuvimos que luchar contra un viento hipohuracanado que presagiaba lluvia y unas nubes que daban a la tarde una luz dramática.
Pero luchar contra el viento fue fácil después de disfrutar del Aguinaldo (plato típico de arroz de Serrada) con el que nos obsequiaron por nuestro duro trabajo y un par de horas en la piscina municipal.
Si nunca habéis hecho un espantapájaros os invito a probar, merece la pena!
