On Saturday, 22 August, residents and people holidaying on Urbanization Monte de los Almendros gathered for a summer party. The theme was Andalucia, and many people dressed accordingly. Many women and young girls wore flamenco dresses and had their hair tied back and adorned with a colorful flower. Many men had on sombrero hats and high waisted black trousers, red scarves and boots. Others wore green and white since those are the colors of the flag of Andalucia. People´s attire was definitely a topic of conversation.
