Learning Castellano: A year on, my boys progress in learning Spanish

Apple Crumble Cake Recipe

Just another ‘quiet’ weekend
Last week a friend from Galicia came to visit, we heard that there was ‘something going on’ in Cheste, not wanting to miss out on the fun we went with few other friends.

The atmosphere was great, people were out to have a great time, each restaurant or bar on the street had a make shift bar outside so people can be served without having to go in. The party continued for over four hours, accompanied with live music from a local band called Nexus.
