Hola From Spain!
Posted on 06/27/2013 @ 04:38 PM
Hola! We finally made it to Espana! On the plane ride over we made lots of new friends both from our group and people sitting near by. We are continually encouraged to speak spanish by the locals, which is fine with all of us. It's definitely fun trying to communicate with others this way.
Since we landed, we've been exploring Barcelona. We got to experience the Sagrada Familia and Park Guell. In both places we got to see the incredible artwork of Anthony Gaudi. We can't believe the type of work he was able to create. It's amazing how this universal cathedral is still being built hundreds of years later. The park was also really pretty. It gave us a great view of Barcelona and allowed us to relax like a true Spaniard. There was even a giant salamander we took pictures with.
Later on in the day, we got to see an ancient synagogue which is one of the oldest synagogues in the world. It was a small structure that was almost like a basement of a building, but filled with lots of interesting artifacts and history.
At night, we watched dancers perform flamenco. It was so neat to see how fast their feet could move. Before we ended our night, we put on a short performance of our own to showcase our newly learned flamenco skills. We can't wait to see what else Spain has to offer!
