Flashback to Oviedo, Spain

So far Oviedo has been lovely. I have been able to revisit some of my favorite spots in the city, see some of my friends, and just enjoy it all. I depart tomorrow for El Camino de Santiago, but here are the pictures I have gathered.

Views of Beautiful Asturias on the bus ride from Madrid to Oviedo. Once in Asturias the ride is breathtaking, and it winds in and out of tunnels. Something you just don't get in Michigan.

Another view from the bus ride. The pueblos situated in front of the mountainous background make continue to make the long drive a little bit less boring and a little bit more scenic.

La Calatrava. Basically i tis a glorified mall, but it is definitely awesome to look at. I am actually sat at a cafe in here now. Fun fact - when I studied abroad here, my friends and I called this "the spaceship mall."

The Catedral de Oviedo, a very familiar sight.

Now in Oviedo, there is an exhibit containing Shroud of Turin, a cloth believed by some to be the burial cloth of Jesus.

Stolled by a few of the clubs I used to go to. This one is the late one; we would arrive here around five in the morning.

La gorda, staute and plaza. Also a common meeting place in the city of Oviedo.

A picture of an escanciadora (person who pours Asturian Cider). Asutrian Cider is different because it has to be aerated in order to create the carbonation. It also has a flavor that is more distinct than regular cider. I have come to love it!

Hector, myself, and Rebeca - friends from when I studied abroad on Calle Gasgona (the cider street!). It was great to see them again
