Budding gourmets and Spanish enthusiasts indulged their taste-buds as the week long ‘Taste of Spain’ festival concentrated on matters food and drink. This tantalising selection of Spain’s most famous foods and wines included demonstrations by chefs from London’s leading Spanish restaurants and the Spanish regions. There were even cocktails being made out of Harveys Sherry. It’s part of a push to encourage British people to sample the Spanish experience, and hopefully encourage even more of us to take a trip to Spain on holiday. To see just what was served up, take a look at this video. less

When it was built by King Sarayaman the II it was the largest public space in the world. Instead of bricks customary at the time he used sandstone. This temple was to symbolize Mount Meron the home of the Gods. It started out as a Hindu temple and became Buddhist centuries later. This is the only temple in Angkor that has been in continuous use since its construction in the 12th century. When the Europeans first saw it they were so overwhelmed they compared its architecture to that of ancient Rome .
