On Thursday the students had a blast as they plunged under the water with their scuba class. Their ceramic creations are coming along nicely in class and our game of beach volley ball with the Spaniards was lots of fun.
On Saturday we went to Marbella, a beautiful city along the coast. We walked around the historic center, along the beach and visited the town hall and one of the older churches. The students went on a scavenger hunt to discover some interesting facts about the city. On the way back to Nerja, we stopped in the glamorous resort town of Puerto Banus. The students were very impressed to see all of the expensive cars lining the streets and the elaborate yachts in the port. Afterwards we stopped in the large shopping center to get a few souvenirs and take advantage of the summer rebajas¨ (sales).
There is a lot to look forward to in our last week. In class we are letting our creativity flow as we finish our Libro de Verano (a student-created booklet commemorating our time in Nerja). A sort of yearbook, the Libro de Verano contains pages on activities, excursions, local culture, and other important aspects of our summer. It’s always exciting to see the unveiling of the final printed copies, which are revealed at our final dinner.
More to come…stay tuned!
