Today I went to my first mascleta which is a series of explosions for five minutes. The Plaza d'Ayuntamiento was packed out. Its addictive, I'm looking forward to seeing it again - they have it everyday til the end of fallas - 19th March. My girlfriend told me to keep my mouth open because its so loud it can burst your eardrums. A woman in front of us fainted and had to be carried out. If I can compare it to anything it would be the strange compulsion of popping bubblewrap but on a much larger, louder scale.
