Getting to Know Our Host Families and First Day of School!

Written by Alexis Blackwell ’20

Today we met with our families and became more familiar with our neighborhoods. Alex and I both were so excited to met our host Candela and all of her beautiful gatos (cats), perros (dogs), and caballos (horses). After becoming more comfortable we were able to have some time to relax. We then as a group met for dinner in Las Rozas. We then tried our best to get a good night’s sleep.

Today was our first day of school. We started by meeting in the library to meet the headmistress and talk about our day. Then we ate a typical spanish breakfast, churros with chocolate. We were taken on a tour around the whole school and once we were done we finally got to relax and talk in a group about our experience so far. We learned more about Spain and played kahoot to see who remembered more. Then it was time for lunch! We had soup, bread, potatoes, and bananas. After that we learned how to fence and went to a hip hop class. Overall, it was a fun day and I can’t wait to learn and experience more!
