This week for Easter, my host mom bought me a traditional Spanish Easter goodie called "Mona de Pascua." It's a sweet bread and then it also had a chocolate egg with a surprise inside.
Thursday I went to the beach for a little while since we had nice weather to play volleyball. Thursday night I went over Hannah's house to hang out with her and some friends.
Friday Christina's friend came from Salamanca (she's studying there) and I went with them around the city.
Friday night was pretty cool because we went to a procession at the beach. There were many processions there all of the Holy Week. The one that we went to Friday night was the burial, which was called, "Procesión General del Santo Entierro." Watch the video and find out what it was like! (No, that is not the KKK.)

Saturday, my friends and I that were around took a day trip to Dénia. It is a smaller port city that is located south of the City of Valencia, but is still in the Comunitat Valenciana. It was about an hour and 45 minutes by bus. I really enjoyed the city and the time that we spent there. Our day included hiking up a mountain that contains caves, exploring remains of a castle, and hanging out at the beach. (To me, what else can someone ask for?!)

After they left, I Skyped with my family for a little bit before I went to mass at the Cathedral.
I hope that everyone had a good Easter!
