From campus to the caves!

As an alternative to a regular día de deportes (sports day, held after class) activities, Wednesday's adventures took us out of our host city and into the Cueva de Valporquero. Located about 47 kilometers outside of the city,  near the village of Valporquero del Torío, the cueva features six salas (halls) that we were able to explore with our guide.

After the tour of the cave, our driver José Luis took us up to a nearby look-out point so the students could get a glimpse of life in the mountains. Undeterred by rain, I think all those who made the trek up the hill would agree it was worth it to experience the fantastic views.
