Tomorrow we are off to Gijón for the day! We will take the train there which is only about a 35 minute ride. Saturday is the Noche de San Juan fiestas all over Spain (and many other places around the world). A bonfire will be lit at exactly midnight (and yes, there will be tons of people there and even small children at that hour!). It is said that you can put a paper with bad things that happened to you this year in the fire (before it is lit) to burn them so that you have a good year this coming year.

One of our students, Aamina, is writing for the IUHPFL blog in Spanish which is a separate link. http://iuhpfl2012oviedo.blogspot.com
