Quick Updates

So I just got back from a weekend in Lagos, Portugal which is basically just a small beach town that fills with tourists during the summer months. The beaches were really nice with cliffs and lots of places to explore or just relax.
However, the big news is that Feria was last week. Feria is a festival in Sevilla where people come from all over to basically just hang out with friends and family and eat and drink for a week. Huge tents are set up in a large open space and companies or families can rent a tent for the week (it's not cheap). With the tent comes a bartender and a cook and they basically spend the week there eating and hanging out with their friends. It is quite an affair seen as no one works and everyone basically just takes the week off to party. Women wear their colorful flamenco dresses and dance the Sevillano which is a local dance and everyone just basically relaxes for a week. There is even a fair on the grounds for the kids, including rides and two ferris wheels.
I have to go now though because I am using my short time on the internet to reserach for a project. More updates soon!
