Would the locals in east London appreciate Spanish residents dressing up as Pearly Kings and Queens?

It is our feria this week, our Spanish friends asked if I had a traje, I explained, like Peter said, it did not feel polite to wear one as I was not Spanish, they said it was perfectly OK to wear one.

Every year we say we must go, my husband was born in Douglas, the village where Sir James Douglas came from.

We have visited Teba, just not at the Douglas Day festival
