Vamos A La Playa!
The weather today was AHmazing! And it will be all week. Thankfully, it's been unseasonably warm and sunny here. This time of year it's supposed to start to get a bit chilly and rainy. During the winter it's cold and rainy everyday....BUT today was nice! A fellow English assistant and I went to a nearby beach, Vilagarcia de Arousa. The beach was only a quick 30 minute train ride from Santiago. It was gorgeous, but not the best. I think I was just super excited to be near water that I didn't really care what it looked like. The water was freezing, as I knew it would be, but it was very relaxing just to sit and enjoy the view for a few hours. There were a lot of sunbathers(many topless...) and even some brave swimmers. I'd definitely return; maybe Wednesday, it's a holiday here!
