As might be reasonably expected, the rest of May and most of JUNE passes quietly. However the end of June sees the rather odd celebration of the Eve of St John the Baptist, when the local youths go out into the surrounding countryside and cut down the tallest chopo (poplar) tree that they can find, carry it home on their shoulders and it is erected in the town square next to the church. This year's specimen was magnificent. It towered above the height of the church spire and was far, far more impressive that that erected in Los Marines, which is probably the whole point anyway.
