We are in Europe!

Monday morning was greeted by a bunch of really excited students. They had just spent the weekend with their families and they all wanted to share their experiences. Some went to Madrid, some went to Segovia and saw the Roman aquaduct. Quite a few experienced a real Spanish festival and one student even ventured as far as Jerez to watch the Moto GP.

During the weekend German and French students arrived in Avila for their exchange, and on Monday morning we all met and went first to offer some flowers to Saint Teresa, Avila’s patron, and then to see Avila’s main touristic attractions together. The press followed us all the way to write an article, as it is the first time the 3 exchanges have coincided in Avila.

We were greeted by the Mayor in the Town Hall and then went to the primary school for a midmorning snack. Once we all recharged batteries we visited Avila’s cathedral and learnt all about the building with the help of Jesus, one of the History teachers.

In the afternoon we all returned to school to play “Trivia” against our Spanish, German and French friends.

Fun day in Madrid.

Today we have gone to Madrid for a fun packed day. In the morning we visited “El Estadio Santiago Bernabéu”, home to Real Madrid football club. It is massive and we went all the way to the top and then worked our way down through halls full of trophies and memorabilia. We even got to see the changing room and sat on the bench.

At lunch time we left the city centre and headed out towards “El Parque de Atracciones”, Madrid’s theme park. Oh my! We got really excited when we saw some of the rides from the coach window. We had a “man down” after one of the rides proved a bit too much for the stomach. But… what a fun day we all.
