How have you been this week? I have had a fantastic week. There were so many smiles!
Saturdays are always busy as our friend David comes to help hubby with construction work. (We are still building our house). This time he brought me a present from his wife (my friend):
She crocheted it herself. I thought that was so sweet!
Otherwise Saturdays are my baking days. I baked two cakes, one of which ended up in the freezer and the second one got shared between a few of us that come together at Intercambio. A get-together of Spanish people that want to practice their English, and foreigners that want to practice their Spanish. We meet in one of the rooms of the Town Hall every Saturday. There were very few of us this time (4).
Sundays we go to church, have coffee, cook and then have dinner at 3:30, than at 5 we go to our local church group that meets in someone's house in the village.
On Monday we did shopping and got the campervan ready, and Tuesday was a public holiday: Andalucia Day. There is lots going on then and there is always a 'romeral' when everybody comes together with their horses and people who don't have a horse go and look at the ones who do. The ladies dress up in Andalucian style and it is always very colourful.
I don't seem to be able to reduce the size of this photo, sorry, it's gone all funny on me.
Later on that day we went away in our campervan. We travelled to Cartagena, where I found a campervan park:
Ours is the first one seen on the right (it's an old camper). If you are able to enlarge the photo you will see my reflection in the window of the little office building.
On Wednesday we visited Cartagena, which is an ancient harbour town. The weather is lovely and warm.
I particularly wanted to see the Roman theater that was only discovered in 1988.
Yesterday we visited La Union, a mining town, and saw the mining museum. That was very interesting:
And as this blog is about smiles, here is one:
We were being handed our hard hats before entering the mine and people were taking pictures of each other. Suddenly someone offered to take our picture and I quickly slammed the hard hat on my head without adjusting the size (it must have been worn by a child before). Hence the funny angle of the hat.
Tomorrow we will be visiting a natural park and also try to get some shopping done. There is an English supermarket along the coast somewhere. But that will all be for next week's blog.
That's all from me today. I hope you enjoyed seeing a bit of my travels.
Now I'm off to Annie at Friday Smiles and Virginia at Rocking Your Week Friday. Hope to see you there too.
Have a good week,
With lots of smiles,
