Well, the student of the course of literature became interested in the costumbrista literature of Spain and focused on the culinary customs, while the other student, a great chef in your floor, wanted to know how to cook a real paella valenciana. Willing both to do this, they pointed to a trip that opened them the vision of the traditional Valencian cuisine. When Spanish students arrived at Alaquas everything was fun, the spectacle of the bulls, the crowd that had been on the street, music could be heard everywhere but the best moment came with the contest of paellas, two students mentioned above with other Spanish students were arranged to make a Valencian paella, when ended it, had passed the maximum realization time and why they could not enter in competition, but all are confident that if they had been entered in the competition, had won it because two hours didn’t have any grain of rice. Although the contest ended, the feast in Alaquas had not finished, then to the paella contest, Spanish students enjoyed a refreshing swim in the public pool in the village and continued celebrating in this typical Festival of the peoples of the region of Valencia.
