In my last upload, I told you about the flamenco in the restaurant forecourt at El Saladillo, Spain, where I have often enjoyed tapas and coffee whilst watching the dancing.
These are two of the dancers.........well, three if you count the horse.
I chose to lead with V1 because I love the expression on the horse's face.
So the 4 versions are in reverse order because they kiss at the end of the dance.
The pole is one of the dance "props" that they use.
El Saladillo is a pedania covering 70 square kilometres. The original population centre of the village contains just a handful of people. The origins of the small village are sketchy, which is understandable, since Mazarron’s history revolved around the alum, lead and silver mines, and it is inevitable that there should be little documentation regarding geographical areas which were dedicated only to the farming which the arid climate and landscape made possible. El Saladillo was a fair distance from the mines, and the farms here concentrated on growing and processing cereal crops..
El Saladillo was a stopping-off point for travellers between Mazarron and Murcia.
Nowadays it is home to just a few inhabitants, who either work in the hostelries or are retired.
