Gaby and Marcus have also been having fun with Saray, Fernando´s sister who lives with them. She just graduated from university in fine arts and has lots of costumes to play dress up. She previously studied English in England for four months and speaks very well, so the kids have loved that too.
Yesterday, Sunday, for lunch we had paella, the official dish of Spain. Here it is with homemade bread and wine, the traditional side kicks. If you had paella with us in Belleville, that was good, but true paella is made with seafood. This one had shrimp, clams and calamar.
Here are Fernando and Jenny on the balcony outside the bedroom of their new house. The house is still under construction and they are hoping to move in in a few months. The view of Vigo across the bay is amazing.
Marcus decided to take a picture of Mommy and Daddy too.
After visiting their new house we traveled on to the coast to Area de Bon, a small beach near Vigo. The word "area" is Gallego for "arena" (sand in Spanish) in Galicia, the province we are in, the official language is Gallego, a local dialect that is more like Portuguese than Spanish.
After the beach we headed to a mall to buy Marcus some flip flops. Our luggage still hasn´t caught up with us yet, so the only shoes he had we´re his cowboy boots! Now he´s all set with the flip flops. Here are are having supper at a Spanish restaurant at the mall.
