Back in May the forecasters were predicting the coldest summer in Spain for 200 years. Well, if that was a cold summer, bring on some more please. Daytime temperatures peaked in the low 30s Celsius (90s Fahrenheit) and we didn't get that extended sweaty humid period that usually keeps us awake on August nights.
As always, Alcalainos took full advantage of the summer months to celebrate their fairs and festivals. Here are some pictures recording the summer of 2013 by a young local photographer, Pedro Martín Sánchez, more of whose excellent work can be seen on his blog Alcalá a través de mi objetivo.
