Who said Ronaldo is vain?

Valencia’s Las Fallas ‘torch’ festival ended Thursday with the ritual bonfire, la cremà, of giant papier maché statues. For those familiar with Spain, the figures are common at Easter, although Valencia’s festival is an ancient pagan event. This year’s ‘participants’ included a giant Cristiano Ronaldo, complete with mirror.

An appropriate mix for Valencia – an odd confluence of medieval, beach, ultra-modern and David Villa.

Got Ronaldo spot on though…
