Pretty building in Santallana del Mar

Ashley and a Bruja (witch)


This weekend we went to Santander in the North of Spain. Our weekend started out on Friday, we took a bus and halfway there stopped in Burgus...not our favorite place in the world. It is kind of like a home for senior citizens with a cathedral. Anyways, after that we got to Santander and rested up before we went to explore a little bit. Our hotel was right on the beach and this weekend there was a carnival with music and food and ferris wheels/rides etc. On Saturday we went to the beach and to Santallana del Mar. In Santallana, its all about Cows and Witches. I'm not sure why... On Sunday we did a little more sight seeing and then headed back to Madrid. This week is our last full week of school and on Thursday we go to Barcelona!
