It seems like our students have been in Conil for a few months instead of 2 weeks. By now they know their way around Conil pretty well and they come and go speaking Spanish like a real conileños. Spanish classes are going great and afternoon workshops continue in full swing: at cooking they made a pasta bolognese (with pasta made from scratch), at Surfing you could already see a few students stand on their boards, during photography students climbed up to the emblematic Toro de Osborne to take photos, and at community service they lent a hand to the Alzheimer's center staff.
Tomorrow we leave for Cordoba and Sevilla and we will be away for two nights. Our first stop will be Córdoba where we will visit the Mosque/Cathedral, the Jewish quarter and el Puente Romano (Roman times bridge). We will spend the night in Córdoba and on Saturday we will travel to Seville. In Seville we will visit the Royal Palace, Plaza de España, Barrio Judío and we will kayak in the Guadalquivir River. We will be back in Conil by 5:30 pm on Sunday. We will make sure to post lots of photos.
On Saturday, 98 students boarded the buses and headed off to the famous Six Flags Amusement park for the day. We had beautiful sunny weather and all in all a great park adventure! On Sunday we took 92 students into San Francisco to explore the Fisherman's Wharf and Ghirardelli Square area. Students had the chance to choose from three guided tours by our staff: Bike across the Golden Gate Bridge, Walk Lombard street and Climb Coit Tower, or Ride a Cable Car up the hill or just venture around the area with their friends. Take a look at some of our adventures over the weekend:
