In northern Spain (Baltanás), there is a hill that contains 374 bodegas (more or less). They were built around the 15th century and are typically used today to conserve wine.
In Chaioso (una aldea), Orense, Galicia, España. This historical edifice was built around the 17 century (more or less). It is where the nobles (wealthy aristocrats) lived.
In Vidrieros, Palencia, Castilla y León, España, at the foot of the Curavacas mountain, there is a small hut that I found fascinating. This hut was used by shepherds back in the day. It is very nice to be out among such beautiful nature.
I am in northern Spain (Baltanás). I love finding unique differences in other countries from those of the Unitied States. It is common in the US (for the most part) to have areas to put your grocery cart at a typical grocery store. In much of Spain, they have come up with a creative idea to help the supermarket put the carts back to where they belong.
In 2008, I took a group of high school students (Franklin High School, Elk Grove CA) to Central America. We visited an active volcano in Guatemala. Our guide (Yesenia) took us all they way up the volcano to flowing lava. ¡Fue muy Impresionante!
I always try to recognize the simple cultural differences from one country to the next. When I was in Spain with my wife and friends, I noticed that they were eating sunflower seeds while sipping on a beverage at a bar. I found that curious. I even found it more curious how everybody was eating the seeds. Watch this video to find out the difference between sunflowers seeds (pipas) in Spain and sunflower seed in the United States.
