Santander. Wow. What a beautiful city. Beautiful beaches, with waves plenty big enough to surf on (proved by the fact that there were literally dozens of people out surfing on Saturday night, untill it truely got too dark to see!!).
I hung out on the beach for most of Saturday evening and night – ate a boccadillo (sub) sitting up on a rock overlooking the ocean, twas beautiful. Got up kinda early on Sunday and ate breakfast, which, quite happily was very good… all kinds of food for breakfast, including lots that we used to make sandwiches with for the ride home.
After breakfast I wandered around Santander a little bit, and then back down onto the beach again =) Around 12:30 we left the hotel and went to the ´down town´ section of Santander… wanderd around there for a while as well, and found a little market.
The markets here are kind of funny… Some of the stuff is blatantly obviously stolen. Like the table that seriously had nothing but VHS movies and DVD´s… which were obviusly from a movie rental place (as they were in the funky cases, complete with numbers…), or the other table that mostly had silverware and a remote control and other random stuff.
Then we went and visted some gardens and saw the royal palace/mansion which was pretty cool… They also have three ships that apparently crossed the Atlantic at some point on display, and they are absolutely TINY… maybe 30 feet long, at absolute most.
There was also a mini-zoo, which had penguins, sea lions and seals. It was kind of cool… penguins are awesome=)
Other than that… just the 5 hour busride back to Salamanca.
And then this morning… I had my second placement test to see which level I get to study in for the next 3 months… I really think I´ll be in Intermediate though I´m not entirely sure.. will find out here in a little bit.
