    Fantastic photo of Cangas de Onis in your Introduction! I like the sound of small places like this where tourists are at a minimum. Good work!

    I saw this funny way of serving cider, I am sure the pupils of that school do their home-work inside the bath-tub !!

    If they need special schooling to be a cider-barman, I bet the homework would be fun.
