Meatballs, Conil and bullfighting!

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. Afterwards everyone had some free time to either explore the town or go to the beach – and it was perfect beach weather today!
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. Then it was time to bullfight. It was very exciting and we have many brave students that took a cape and gave it try!
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!
