The food finally arrived and it was awful! We were both stumped after the first few mouthfuls and gave up. I can usually see the good in any meal and my appetite plus greed will ensure that I just get on and eat, but no. I really couldn't. Even the rice was rubbish. We didn't pass on any feedback to the proprietors – just paid and headed off into the night.
Casemates Square was buzzing! The crowds out in full-force, now fed and watered. The square is quite small and was dominated by a stage. The live band was really good and we had a bit of a dance. Countdown commenced prior to the obligatory fireworks. And weren't they amazing? The display had been set up from the wall on the edge of the square so we were right underneath them. They also went on for a long time and once the official ones had finished we could hear other displays ringing out nearby. We soon lost interest in the square and wandered off, back to our home in Spain. The displays continued on the walk back, including one individual hosting his own display right on the pavement. The atmosphere had been great throughout and we were able to put that poor meal back into the rear recesses of our minds.
