this land of spain is very old, it was two kingdoms - castille and leon - formed together as the old kingdom of castilla y leon. it is very very strange, because in the philippines, in the colonial times and i am 100% sure to this date - the people in the philippines do not refer the spanish people as "spanish" or "spaniards" but rather - "kastila" (castillan) i took this for granted and never debated about it, it was a shame because i love history.
it looked like we were straight in a western movie! the sky was soooo clear and blue, the horizon seemed endless - left and right are patches of yellow and gold earth, with beautiful fields of rapsöl (rapeseed) here and there.
i really really really wanted to sleep, but how?!! ok i did, but only for some short moments, as i dont want to miss every single moment of "madre patria" yes i was greedy, i want to savor every moment of it. as i looked at my friends deep in their sleep, i realized that i much more wanted this than them, i mean ok, theyre ready for the adventures we are going to make, but as my country was a colony and my roots are from spain i take it this trip more seriously than them :D
simply a beautiful country, and i am in love already as the bus drove into an endless road and by watching the fields of gold stretched from horizon to horizon.
*disclaimer: i put some pics from the internet of castilla ý leon landscape*
