While I wasn't sobbing or even crying in any traditional manner, the tears I produced weren't from laughing too hard...
When we came back down, the storm started passing through. As we approached the cathedral of Covadonga we noticed that it was surrounded by a double rainbow. It was simply gorgeous.
