Journal Entry:
Beach Day!! Took the train up to La Corona with Sophie and Connie (my Danish flat mates). From the train station we asked which bus we took to get to the beach (it was a 5km walk and very hot so we didn't want to walk). A local directed us to get on the bus with her, and 40 minutes later we were at the beach. Not La Corona's beach, but still a beach. We never did figure out where we were, but the beach was nice and when we were sunburned enough we managed to catch a bus back to the train station in time to catch the last bus back to Santiago de Compostela, so the day was a success. There was even surf at the beach (1 to 3 feet) so despite the cold water I had an excuse to get wet every once in a while.
