Vamos a la cider!

Last night we went to the sidreria- what an experience! Not too mention GREAT idea.
After the 20 minute bus ride to the edge of town, we hiked along the road to this giant house which was the sidreria. A sidreria is just a reeeeally big restaurant filled with HUGE barrels of cider. You get a 5 course meal and unlimited cider :) There were a couple different buildings/houses that made up the sidreria. We were in one room with a bunch of long tables and barrels of cider against the wall. In the main building, there was more seating, and there's one room just filled with barrels where you can go in and try different types of cider.
The food consisted of sausage, fish, eggs, green peppers, steak, and lots of pan (bread)! After dinner, they served dessert- cookies, cheese, and walnuts. There is a spout on the barrels where the cider shoots out and you fill your glass. All in all, it was a good night, and I'd definitely go back!

Two new favorite songs discovered in Spain:

1. Catchy Portuguese pop song by Michel Telo "Ai Se Eu Te Pego"

2. Song I may or may not have heard in the U.S., but I hear it all the time here and love dancing and singing along!

I like your description :) Sidreria in the Basque language is called "Sagardotegia". Another very traditional dish to eat in these places is the "cod omelette" you should try it next time, very tasty!

Thanks guys! I will definitely fix my spelling.. I actually think we did have the cod omelette- scrambled eggs and cod? It was delicious!
