Quick Greetings From Magialdia
As you are reading this I’m still in Spain, more precisely at the Magialdia convention in Vitoria.
Today, Sunday, is the last day of the three-week festival, and also marks the end of the convention which lasts four days, Thursday through Sunday.
The closing event is a big show that takes place in the historical plaza of Vitoria, a truly magnificent location.
More in a future The Magic Memories.
Memories of Sessions in the South of Spain
The photos below are courtesy Miguel Puga, aka Mago Migue.
I knew Migue as a very young and talented chap, always eager to learn and naturally ambitious.
Today, in his native Spain, he’s a star, organizer of magic conventions, author, etc. A good way to get to know him and his magic is through the video series Allegro by Luis de Matos. Or see here: www.magomigue.net, and to learn more about his convention see here www.festivalhocuspocus.com (Instagram @magomigue).
The photos were taken when Juan Tamariz spent two summers at the home of Migue’s mother, in Dúrcal, near Granada (home of the famous Alhambra, worth traveling to), were week after week famous and not-yet-so-famous magic aficionados were invited to share jamón and magic and friendship, quite an extraordinary Trinity of Life 🙂
In the two photos below you can see Juan Tamariz, Rafael Benatar, Miguel Puga and myself “in action”.
So, this was a short one, due to my absence, but I look forward to our next meeting on Sunday, September 24th, when I’ll have more to report from my travels and magical adventures.
Wish you all an excellent week!
