Este fin de semana (this weekend)...


As the festivities for the fiestas of San Juan and San Pedro continue throughout the city, program participants had yesterday (Friday) off from class and activities to spend with their host families. Today, we went to the small town of Ponferrada to see a Templar castle and later traveled onto Las Médulas, a site as well known for its gold mines (formerly the MOST important in the Roman Empire) as it is for its beautiful vistas, or views. Sunday will bring the controversial yet traditional corrida de toros, or bull fight. Please check in again soon as pictures will be updated as our internet connection allows!
