Rumbo al Norte – Day 7

Asturias is much better than what we expected.

Basically because we had no expectations.

Asturias is cows and milk and heavenly whipped cream.

Asturias is good food (why did no one tell us this before?!) with huge portions.

Asturias is colour and friendly people and not always rain.

Asturias is mountains and ocean and nothing in between.

A lighthouse on a mountain. Why? Because the ocean is 500m down a cliff.

Asturias is apples and sidra and very strict rules for drinking it.

Asturias is animals: there are many now (bears and wolves and otters) and there were many in the past (dinosaurs!).

Asturias is (curious) sheep and cheese and meat and fish all mixed and matched and perfectly combined.

Asturias is history and modern art living side by side.

Asturias is a place I’d love to come back to. Have you been here already? What exactly are you waiting for?

About Full Of Daisies

I am permanently in love. Things I like: purple, pasta, silk, autumn, the smell of mould, candles, cachi, having friends, water, new things, rice, eggs (all eggs!), fresh grass, olive trees, shiny things, glitter, hanging objects, windcatchers, wind, couscous, wasabi, carnivores, presents, snow, leaves, orchids, feathers, cappelletti, meat, fruit (all fruit), more del gelso (Morus alba L.), pigs, candles, christmas, polenta fritta!, separating egg whites from yokes in my hands, cartoons, dragons, the ocean, nudibranchi, cows, mercury (the metal), cosmos (the flowers), thunderstorms, Mika, turtles, acquariums, green and blue (mixed), siccamores, spring, snails, 24, porc with a sweet sauce (apple, cranberry, tomatoes jam), looking at a swimming pool upsidedown and underwater, english accent, open-minded people, driving, blue skies, checkered tablecloths, butterflies, books and cartoons in rhyme, painting eggs, the star-shadows that football players have, silver, laughing, Vivaldi, bells and chimes, white and purple, creating. Complete Happiness: Early morning. Sun, with a breeze; a pond with water lilies. A house, with a garden, full of plants. A vegetable patch, lemon, orange and mandarin trees. Cosmos everywhere. Birds in the trees; a tortoise eating the salad from the vegetable patch; a mammal (I couldn’t decide which one would make me happier) close by. No houses for as far as the eye can see. Me, a man that loves me and that I love. Friends coming over for a lunch that I have to prepare, and have all the ingredients for all ready in the kitchen.
