Our first day we basically spent time at the beach and marina and met up with my Ohio friend Sarah. She showed us a lot of the town, which is quite different than expected. It´s small and pretty busy, not as much ancient architecture as other cities but still a quaint area. Today we met her host mother, Marga, who cooked us the best chicken paella. She then fed us strawberries doused in whip cream (she added more and more to mine.. AKA, I ate a mountain of whipped cream and very few strawberries)... followed by two shots of after-lunch grape based liquer. Good times!
We´re heading out to Santander mid-day tomorrow to meet with Sabrina´s friend from home and also our American friend from Oxford, Sheldon. It´s Sheldon´s birthday today, so we´re taking him out on the town tomorrow, big time. Poor kid!
Off for more yummy Spanish foooooooood!
