NEF A1: 5 A holiday report

I went to Colombia last August with my family. We flew to Colombia with Iberia.
We stayed for twenty days in my parents' house.
During the day we walked around the city. We visited many beautiful sites. We loved going to the Monserrate. We took a lot of photos. At night we often took pies for dinner and we went to bed early. We bought a lot of clothes because they are very cheap.
We had a great time and the weather was good. We had good luck because it often rains in Colombia in August and it is usually windy; it is the kite month. I don´t remember having any problems.


I went to Salamanca last spring with my husband to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We went by car.
We stayed for a weekend in a small hotel near the university. The hotel was nice and quite cheap.
During the day we walked around the city and visited the University of Salamanca, museums, a castle and the Plaza Mayor.
We took a lot of photos. At night we went to a restaurant and had "cochinillo". We also tasted the sweets in Salamanca. We bought the traditional "frog" and "skull" from Salamanca. I bought a keychain with the frog from Salamanca for my son too.
We had a great time. Salamanca is full of history and full of Spanish and foreign students. We only had one problem: the hotel room didn't have a big bed ... but two twin beds!
