Spain

We arrived in Conil!

¡Hola a todos¡

We have arrived in Conil and what an amazing group of students we have this summer.

We definitely made the best of our short stay in Madrid where we managed to fit amongst other things,  a visit to la Plaza Mayor, Retiro Park, lunch at El Mercado San Miguel, Puerta del Sol, Puerta de Alcalá, dinner, Palacio Real, la Catedral and el Templo de Debod. Students were tired, but we all know the best way to fight jet lag is to keep busy and busy we kept. We all slept really, really well.

This morning we left the hotel at 9:30 am for Atocha Train station, and we arrived in Conil at around 3 pm where homestay families were waiting for us. Students were a bit nervous and excited to meet them and we are looking forward to hear all about it when we meet them again at 7:30 pm.

Spanish classes start tomorrow at 10 am. Students will take a written and oral placement test that will determine their language level; and also tomorrow, we will start our community service at the Alzheimer’s Center, and we will have our first cooking workshop.
