So the weekend of February 17 was Carnaval. There were parades and all kinds of crazy things going on. Friday the 17th, I went to Haro to go to a wine festival with one of the professors from the official language school. At the wine festival was a dance show and different kinds of wines. All the wines represented were from bodegas from all over La Rioja.
After the wine festival, I went to La Herradura (tapas area in Haro) with the professor and a student.
The following night I dressed up as a queen for Carnaval and went walking with some of the other students. I tried my best to have a good time, but it just wasn't for me. At least I went to try it out and don't have to regret not going.
