Caught a train to Santiander where I was hoping to spend a few days on the beach. As the train ride continued the weather got worse and worse (heavy rain), so I decided to catch an immediate train out of Santiander to Oviedo and go hiking in the Pico de Europas instead. So I ended up spending all day on the train. In Oviedo I found a traditional sidrería and sat down to try the regions specialty: Sidra (cider). The waiters pour the sidra from above their heads into the glass to release the aroma. I think they do it to sell more sidra since lot's of it ends up on the floor. The sidra does not taste at all like the ciders I've had before. At first taste I didn't like it, but I think that because it didn't taste like I expected it to, by the end of the second taste I decided I liked it. Later I found a sidrería / restaurant that had fabada, a food specialty of the region. It's white beans, a couple kinds of sausages, and ham. All in all it was very good, although it was a little too salty, one of the sausages types was pretty scary, and I'm afraid of what all those beans are going to do to me tomorrow.
