"La tomatina" (embedded video + embedded Spanish gap-fill)

This blog post features a video from RTVE showing some footage from today's "Tomatina" festival in Buñol (Comunidad Valenciana). The video has no commentary, but sets the scene nicely for the text / exercise which follows, which is a gapfill exercise based on a text about the history of "La tomatina" taken from the official tomatina website at http://www.latomatina.es/historia/

The gap-fill exercise is accessed via this button on the textivate menu screen:
