La Espicha

The traditional feast of the region of Asturias!


Well, here is another entry for you all!!! Julia_138.jpg Saturday is the day to be telling you about! First off, I was so late to the bus and everyone had to wait for me becuase my phone had turned off the night before and the time was set wrong. But I made it and we went to go see a 1200 year old monestary in the country:) It was adorable. Julia_144.jpgThen we went to the beach after that and oh my can I even begin to describe how beautiful it was. And I realized that I had never been to the Atlantic before:) It was kind of cold but we still managed to get a little sun. Later that night we all met again and took a bus to a resturant a little ways from the city. At this "espicha" we started with some cider (they drink this everywhere) and then they brought out a lot of different appitizer-like items that were so delicious. We had a really great time there listening to Asturias music (bagpipes....ummm) and eating the food. We walked around the town for the rest of the night and met a lot of local people.
Yesterday was the beginning of classes for the second week and we will see how that goes! We are going on a river trip this weekend so I will keep you posted. Threre are some more pictures in my photo gallery!!! Love you all!
