I was walking back to the hotel reception after accompanying a host to the Sabinas El Pilar Apartments when I saw a strange pink vehicle parked right in front of the hotel, with many people around it taking pictures. As I approached, to my surprise, I noticed that the car was the shape of a pig! Instead of asking its owners if they were coming to the hotel and helping them with their luggage, as we normally would do, I couldn’t help but ask them: “Why are you driving a pig?” David Hillson, David Hillson Jr, Philip Hillson and Carlos Nighlugal (two brothers, their father and a friend) explained that they were participating in the sixth annual Benidorm or Bust Rally along with more than 200 other creative automobiles.
Bartolomiej Wielocha (Warsaw, 30) is a construction engineer, but a few weeks ago he became the protector of the Polish army flag bearer, which fought on the French side of the battle of Zaragoza during the Peninsular War.
Napoleon had conquered Poland and, as he did with other conquered nations, he forced the military elite to join the French ranks on other fronts in Europe. Two centuries later, a group of historical re-enactors of the nineteenth century Polish army crossed Europe by bus for two days with Zaragoza as their destination. They stayed at the Sauce Hotel, located a few dozen meters from the Coso, where they were once overrun by the Zaragoza resistance.
