One of the gardens of Murcia, most visited. This green area has a game infamtil area, another major appliances, a lake, and an auditorium (which in summer becomes cinema). Created in the early 70's, in this garden is the statue, with the children of Murcia and Alicante, wanted to remind the Fofóclown, who died in 1976, hence the name by which many people are familiar with this popular garden.
This is my last photo on the re-enactments. These shields of the photograph correspond to Greek warriors. In ancient Greece, as well as cultivating the thought, to create democracy, and many other things that have magnified the Greek people, they also had time to fight.
On this day, Real Madrid has gone through to play a match of the Copa del Rey against Real Murcia. The result has been a goalless draw (0-0), but still have to play in Madrid. It is a good result for a football team like Real Murcia, who is currently playing in the 2nd division B of Spanish football (so that you see an idea, is the 1 st division, then the 2 nd Division A, and then the 2 nd Division B). A city like Murcia does not deserve to have a football team not to play in 1 st division, or at least in 2nd division A. Here you can see a picture of the football stadium (Nueva Condomina) where the match was played. In the first image: Real Madrid coach, leading the football players to the stadium. In the second photo, the bus escorted by police.
Another period of war in Spain: the Carlist Wars (from 1833 to 1876).The origin of these wars was the succession to the crown of Spain. King Ferdinand VII died and left as heir his daughter Elizabeth II. Before the king passed a law that women could govern Spain. But a Carlos, the brother of Fernando VII, did not accept this law, which caused after the death of Fernando originated Carlist War I.
Leaving aside the re-enactments of W.W. II. Today, the Spanish Civil War: the Republican side.This would be a resistance camp in Madrid, during one of the worst wars that a country can suffer: a civil war. What is fight between brothers. Hopefully, it never provoking a new war.
Continuing the story from yesterday ... "Historical reenactment is an educational activity in which participants attempt to recreate some aspects of a historical event or period. This may be as narrow as a specific moment from a battle, or as broad as an entire period." (Source: wikipedia)
This past weekend was full of activities in Murcia. Among a marathon in favor of road safety: "Ponle Freno" foundation. But what caught most attention was the weekend war organized by the Municipality of Murcia, and the Codex Belixassociation . The Malecón garden was filled with troops: German, English, American, of World War II (in addition to troops from other periods of history of which I speak the next day). The climax was Sunday at the "Puente Nuevo" - New Bridge (or Iron Bridge). Staged the Battle of Arnhem, in the operation 'Market Garden': In the recreation of the battle included people dressed as soldiers and officers of the First Division British Airborne, along with paratroopers Poles, the legendary 101 st and 82 nd American Airborne Divisions and 30 th Corps British Army, as well as German infantry and paratroopers.
A picture to tell two stories. First, statue of Cardinal Belluga (1662-1743).

It is good that exists sites like this, where those who practice it, may have a place to practice. Then, however, you'll see in parks, streets, ... This skate park is in José Barnés sports area, along the Juan Carlos I avenue.
This building is the headquarters of the Murcian Health Service since March 2010 and it is located in the new business district of Juan Carlos I. For several years, the management of the resources of the public health, has been yielded by the government of Spain, to the different autonomous communities.
Quite some time I wanted to take this picture, but there was always someone using it. But finally I have it. This is a bathroom stall that you can find in the mall "Thader". The first time you stand in front of these girls, surprised and even I know that someone has not been able to use it.
This image is a replica of a skeleton of a T-Rex (nothing to do with the band). In the mall of "El Tiro" is a replica skeletons exposure of dinosaurs from different periods.
Today in Spain, is celebrated on Spain's National Day (Dia de la Fiesta Nacional or Hispanidad).

The effects of the crisis. In the picture, highway, betweenAlicante motorway and San Javier. This highway has remained unfinished because of the crisis. There is no money to finish it. It has to expropriate the land of citrus fruits that are in the background, and also have to build the road. The stretch of highway that runs remains to be built by the Ministry of Development of the Government of Spain (assuming this part of the state, makes a motorway that it would be toll, and it is not). The rest of the highway has been built by the Autonomous Community of Region of Murcia (that it finished). Hopefully, it ends, because, besides it will be a good link with the coast of Mar Menor, and I really come in handy to go to the beach.
There are days when one is devoid of ideas when it comes to posting pictures, or add arguments to a photo. In the picture, building in the center of Murcia, between Centrofama and the Paseo Alfonso X "El Sabio"

Siguiendo la corriente de la comunidad CityDailyPhoto, me he propuesto dejar en este blog fotos de Murcia, como forma de mostrar al mundo qué joya de ciudad y de provincia tenemos. Agradecer al creador de ParisDailyPhoto su gran idea de mostrar la ciudad de uno mismo desde otro punto de vista.
