Las Fiestas de Siguenza
So I only survived three days of the fiestas de Siguenza, which officially last five days, and unofficially six. After two days of the party, Pablo (Nacho) and I went with two of his friends from Madrid on a two day, 200km tour on mountain bikes through the small towns of a region called Alcarria in the province of Guadalajara (all near Siguenza). We returned for the last day of festivities, and went out strong. It was the perfect mix, however, because I really don’t think that I could have lasted the full five days. But I got the chance to experience the beginning and the end of the fiestas, and also the opportunity to take an amazing trip throughout the countryside of central Spain….
