The Spanish are unequivocally admired for their deep-felt passion: for food, for dance, for life, for the opposite sex.
So it is no surprise that every year Sydney turns out in droves for the Spanish Quarter Street Festival. Who can resist seared spicy chorizo, jugs of sangria and saffron-yellow paella consumed to the yearning strum of a Spanish gypsy guitar.
Festival organisers have done a great job improving traffic flow every year, although the queues for cinnamon-dusted churros, it seems, will always snake halfway down the block.
Enough talk. Bring on the photos.
