Picnic day. It's martes de campo (a.k.a. La Balesquida) in Oviedo, a popular celebration started in thirdteenth century (yes, XIII c.). Families and friend groups met together to drink cider and eat bollu preñau (bread cooked in the oven with a red sausage, spanish chorizo, stuffed inside).
Andrea dressed in a traditional asturian costume.

Víctor wants also to be in the photo. Aurora laughts out of control and Andrea asks her mother: c'mon, take the snap and let's have lunch at last.

Víctor reclama su sitio en la foto, Aurora se parte de risa y Andrea pide a su madre que se dé prisa, que hay hambre.

Richard does his best at trying to splash some cider in the traditional asturian way ... taking care of the wind speed, the viscosity of cider, the right angle of the glass ... not bad for a start!

Richard trata de escanciar un culín de sidra a la asturiana ... comprueba la velocidad del viento, la viscosidad de la sidra, el ángulo correcto del vaso ... íno está mal para un novato!

Aurora and Andrea caught making some devilish arrangement.

The meal is over. It's time for a little nap under the apple trees.

Terminada la comida es tiempo para una siesta bajo los manzanos.

Feeling relieved after the siesta, people is ready to work again. Richard and Andrea try the new high-tech classrooms recently bought by the Chemistry dean.

Richard, I still feel a little short of practice with this -∇2ρ thing of yours ..., says Andrea.

Richard, no acabo de entender esto de la -∇2ρ ..., dice Andrea.

I'm not going to ask you anything ... says Aurora trying to look friendly.

Yo no te voy a preguntar nada ... dice Aurora tratando de parecer amistosa.

A bath in the Cantabric sea looks like a great idea after the hard work ... but the water was a little cold for our braves.
