Before I moved to Logroño, I lived for a year in Córdoba, in sunny southern Spain teaching English in a tiny village named “Mirror” (Espejo), I kid you not!

Me and the Easter bunny Right now Semana Santa or Holy Week is in full swing in Spain. Or it would be if it wasn’t raining like crazy. As I am writing this I can hear the crowds of people outside my apartment and the boom boom boom of the processional drums. Easter is celebrated [...]

feria feria FERIA

Walking to the fería in Córdoba 2011 So after three straight weeks of festivals in Córdoba in May (cruces, patios, romería and cata del vino) you would think that everyone would want to take a breather and relax, get ready for summer.
