What a combo & what a weekend so far! Evening activities are booming! Everyone in surfing is now standing up consitently on the boards and in cooking class we made the most delicious meatballs ever! They were almost all gone before I was even able to get a picture. We also learned how to make rosquillas – a Spanish doughnut covered in sugar and cinnamon for dessert. Yum!
Today we took a trip to Conil, a nearby beach town and also home to a Summerfuel program. The students in Conil gave us a tour of their town – including the famous arco (arc/portal of the old wall surrounding the town) and the paseo marítimo (walkway along the beach). Our tour ended with everyone climbing to the top of the Torre Guzman (a tower by the beach) to take beautiful pictures of the town and beach below.
In the evening both the Cádiz and the Conil group participated in a “Capea” at a nearby ranch. During a capea people get to practice bullfighting with a baby bull. First we all sat down together and had a little snack.
Right now your sons and daughters are enjoying a night in Cádiz and tomorrow will be a free day for them to rest up, spend time with their families and get ready for another exciting week!
