On Friday, we went to the local weekly market in Colindres.

At the market, my mother bought a shirt from the hottest, most fashionable brand in Spain right now, Guru.

While we let the dough rise, we head out for some drinks! My mother tries on her new shirt.

After lunch (and a siesta) we headed to Santander.

After the palace, we went into the center of the city to find a place to eat.

We ordered two plates, an assortment of fried things and an assortment of cheese.

No more cheese, please! I’m gonna burst!

We got home early to prepare to leave for Madrid the following morning.
