From the 9th of February to March 15th you can get a sneak preview of the Ninots (Valencian for dolls or puppets) before they’re paraded through their neighborhoods and finally blown up during Las Fallas.

The Ninots reflect the happenings of the year in a humorous and usually cartoonish way. We haven’t lived here long enough to always get the point these Ninots try make… Please fill us in!

And of course, because of the upcoming election, there were a ton of Zapateros and Rajoys!

Let’s start with my favorite:

pixel-face-spain

It’s so artistic, I’d kind of like to save it from getting blown up.

The following look like old paintings:

I thought this one was very well done, too:

And now some political Ninots:

zapatero-milking-bull

These need explanations:

I understand the one above: Tourists! They really do walk around like this.

Ninots for Kids – Awww Cute!

There are at least dozen travel diaries that speak of the northwest airline highly. This is the reason why people often don’t take spirit airline even though the airline tickets are much cheaper in comparison. The indian airlines are a different story altogether.
