2015 is endind. Tonight we will enjoy New Year's Eve with friends and/or families.
At 00:00H we will eat 12 lucky grapes to ask wishes to 2016 as usual (a tradition in Spain).
From MurciaDailyPhoto, many thanks for being here the last 12 month and I wish you be here next 12 months with lots of health.
This is a fantastic murcian new orleans jazz quintet. They have come together to play (for now) only for these days. Since last Monday, until tomorrow morning, this quintet are playing music (well played) through several streets of the city of Murcia (morning and evening). They travel in a small train.
Really fantastic. Its provisional name: Tren Disi. (Disi Train)
This is one of those times when I do not know what picture to choose, so here I publish another one.
There are many free activities during Christmas time (at Spain, until January 6th).

The play: Gaya Empress and Mr Dirty the Cruel (La Emperatriz Gaya y Don Mugre el Cruel). A fantastic "green" story for children and adults too. A story about avoiding consumerism, squandering, and to maintain forests, gardens, clean.
With 18ºC, it is very complicated to have any snow at Murcia city. In that case, we have to bring artificial mountains to simulate a tobbogan run. Very funny!

Santa Claus, Papá Noël, Pere Noël, Father Christmas, Pai Natal, ... (more differents names for this man, here) has visited Región of Murcia, and, tonight, is going to leave gifts to everybody (children and adults) if it is possible.
Tomorrow we will elect our new leaders to Spain. Deputies, senators, which will come the Prime Minister. In Spain, prior to voting day, we have a day of reflection, where candidates can not campaign.

At El Palmar, a village of Murcia, it is the Arrixaca Hospital complex (two big buildings on the center-right). In the middle: maternal and child hospital. On the right: general hospital.
But on this picture I want to highlight the big building on the left. 7 flats to research on biomedical projects. 144 labs. It is the "Biomedical Research Laboratories of Health Science University Campus" of the University of Murcia (Laboratorios de Investigación Biomédica del Campus Universitario de Ciencias de la Salud). It has housed the IMIB: Instituto Murciano de Investigación Biosanitaria (Murcian Institute for Biomedical Research)
Last Saturday there were some street concerts around the city to celebrate the official lighting of the Xmas lights at Murcia city. Differents styles in each concert.
Image: concert at Romea square. Classic rock songs by Michelle Mccain and Pablo Perea (La Trampa). Awesome.
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. Following the tide of community CityDailyPhoto, I proposed to leave in this blog photos of Murcia, as a way to show to the world what a jewel of city and province we have.
