Fofó Park. Parque Fofó.

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 Fofó clown, who died in 1976, hence the name by which many people are familiar with this popular garden.

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.

Real Murcia Vs Real Madrid: First Assault.

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.

First, statue of Cardinal Belluga (1662-1743).

The Effects Of The Crisis.

The effects of the crisis. In the picture, highway, between Alicante 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.
