After eating breakfast out (such an easy luxury in Spain) we headed over to my school to show it to my parents. It was so cloudy that we couldn’t see the impressive mountain vistas, and it even started to rain on our way back. So much for Spanish weather. Luckily, it was perfect weather for cocido! After dropping my parents off at the metro, and going all the way to my private class to find it had been cancelled, I was in need of some TLC. Just at that moment, my boyfriend announced that this week was tapas week, and every day he would prepare a different tapas before our meal. This is why I don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day! Unprompted gestures like this are worth a million awkward dinner surrounded by middle aged couples struggling to make conversation!
