I like the quality life you get in Santillana. I prefer this to live in a capital like Madrid. Better to be under the influence of the sea than under the influence of the tube.
Me gusta la vida que ofrece Santillana. La prefiero a la de la capital. Mejor vivir bajo la influencia del mar que bajo la influencia del metro.
