Romería de Valme

¿Què tal tu día? 
He tenido un día largo. Tengo estudiar mucho.  Pero,  estoy contenta. No te preocupes. :)

Did any of you understand that? I hope so! It counts even if you understood 1 word.  (One word besides 'hola') 

Here is what i said: 
How was your day?
I had a long day. And I have to study a lot.  But I am happy.  Don't worry :)

On Sunday my Maite, Marta, Javi and I went to the nearby town of Bellavista to see the most spectacular spectacle!!!

It is called the Romería de Valme. The Romería de Valme is a small pilgrimage transporting the lovely image of the Virgin Mary from one chapel to another.
Our friend tried to explain what the day meant, but I just didn't understand all of it.  So here is an article I found to explain.  It's in Spanish of course, but you can click the translate button and it works pretty well.  
But there are a few words I need to clarify:
Dos Hermanas = Two Sisters.  But Dos Hermanas is a CITY!  So don't get confused.  They are the two first words!
Please visit this site!  Even if you don't want to read (in either Spanish or English)  Just look at the pictures :)

***** OH! And the picture of the food at the bottom!!!
Well it is Tortilla con Jamón.  Eggs and Spanish Ham.  I learned to make it! Maite is an amazing teacher.  (Thanks!! ) So I made dinner on Sunday.  How awesome am I?

Click on the site to see where our DELICIOUS ham comes from.  Don’t judge something until you try it! 


Here are my pictures: Enjoy <3
