We headed up to Oria again, this week. The hash was specially arranged as there were Hash House Harriers from Cambridge, Hastings Truro and our own Indalo, a coach brought the Oria1104053visitors from Mojácar, where they are staying. 51 and dogs, set off from the petrol station, the runners following symbols made from flour, the walkers following a hare (mad march, as it turned out). The walkers headed into town to begin the ascent to the ruins of a fortification on the hill, as seen on  the view of Oria from Ogarite.

We then walked through the narrow streets towards the Church and square, where next week, due to the local fiesta, the lads playing football, will be replaced with dancers. We went into the Church.

These crosses of red and white with lilac carnations are traditionally madeOriahash2040513 for the fiesta. We walked quite a way with the man on a donkey.
