We walked a half hour in the hot summer sun, searched high and low for just the right gift and hand picked not one but two very special prizes.
A small miniture painting of our coast and the stoic San Lorenzo Catholic church.
And I wanted something you can´t get anywhere else in the world. Something that no one would even know how to get unless they came here to visit or live.
In Gijón, Asturias, SPAIN, the older people actually still wear wooden shoes to work in the fields. They are called Madreñas. If I sent them without an explanation you might think we lived in Holland but noooooo they are standard for the older generation who grew up working in the mountain fields of Asturias.
Can´t wait to see who wins!
