Welcome to Melide, a city near Lugo. My co-teacher and I went on a day trip to see the festival here and to show me where her husband’s family grew up. This small capilla is one of the first monuments you see when you drive into this little town.
Back outside to the festival.
There were people selling everything from shoes to cakes at these booths!
I know it’s a little weird that this sign reads Chocolate sausage, but it was just chocolate, not sausage. Also, it was the softest chocolate ever.
That triangle shaped cheese there is called tetilla
I loved listening to Jose’s stories about when he grew up here. Apparently, an old woman lived in this house. The kids called her the crazy lady because she talked to herself. They’d dare one another to get close to the house and then they’d run when she came to the door to chase them away.
