It begins…A Coruña, Spain

¡Hola! At the beginning of the week, I arrived in the Santiago de Compostela airport in Galicia, a region in the north of Spain. Before my program starts in Sevilla, I wanted to come here to meet some of my grandma’s side of the family that lives in A Coruña which is one of the four provinces, or las provincias, of Galicia. Here it is common for people to speak both Castellano and the distinct language of Galicia: Gallego.

This is the house I’m staying in this week while in A Coruña. DSC_0700

This part is mostly rural so many people have animals. These cows or las vacas must have known I was taking a picture, they looked right at me. 🙂DSC_0724
