Perhaps you don't "still" know who is Fernando Alonso, but I'm sure that in less than a year you will be used to him.
He was born in Oviedo in 1.981 and began to drive karts when he was only 4 years old.
This is his first real test in Formula One, in Speed Racing Cars, and he is in the top of the best premonitions: one pole position, three podiums, and five races in the points. At the beginning was testing with Minardi, but actually, he is driving for Renault (R23 car).
Fiesta de las Americas
"Dancers on the Plaza"
This colorful annual city festival features lots of folkloric groups.
This little girl seemed overwhelmed by the surroundings of the city of Oviedo and so many people. She and others from her pueblo were there for a folklore festival. Autumn, 1965. Image scanned from Kodachrome transparency.
For those whose notions of Spanish folklore don't extend beyond flamenco and the cante hondo, the Fiesta de las Americas provides an opportunity to experience the variety of Spanish dance, such as this troupe from the northern regions.
