... and by a friendly PC, with a Spanish accent? The camper duly moved; we were checked in to the hotel, and we hit Gib. A pint and some fish and chips ... great! Gib is a strange place - like any British resort, with fish and chip shops, pubs, brand named stores, red telephone and post boxes and Bobbies on the beat, although its sunny and most workers speak with an accent. Really is a must at least once. Lunch was followed by a walk through town, with a stop at Marks and Sparks! and ...

... Patum Completa consists of two cycles of dances followed by a Salt de Plens and then the whole thing repeated again with Tirabols at the very end. A single cycle takes about 45 minutes but can be more dependent upon the size of the crowd and the difficulty of managing each phase.
