Isabel showing us how it's done. Apparently when you are singing carols in a bar, you have to ask the staff for a bottle of this specific brand of anis (Mono, in case you need to know; note the ridged surface). The barman obviously knew this since he had several almost empty bottles ready, along with a supply of spoons. Intercambio this evening was riotous carol singing in several languages, including a duo in Asturian which is apparently called Bablé, as in babble.
I was pleased to see F and T there; we haven't seen them for ages, as we've been in France and they've been travelling and only got back a couple of days ago. It will be nice to catch up with them in more tranquil surroundings.
