Last weekend we went to Sierra Nevada. Sierra Nevada is in Andalusia, in the south of Spain. I did many outdoor activities, for example hiking, climbing and snowboarding. My friends traveled by cable car and they saw the sunset from the summit of Veleta. Fascinating! On Saturday night, we went to a concert and we went to bed pretty late. On Sunday, we went to a romería and we ate a lot. It was a fantastic weekend.

Clever stuff happening!
