Unfortunately good times always have an end! And we are very close to it :(
Last week in Valencia was for some cultural activities and for preparing the activities for the big day: The Farewell Party. The students have been practicing for their individual and group performances with too much effort.
On Tuesday, we watched the third film in our spanish film series. It was time to watch Pedro Almodovar's "Volver", a dark drama-comedy film from one of the most important spanish filmmakers.
On Wednesday, we went to the beach to relax and have fun. It was a sunny afternoon in Valencia so kids used the corresponding sun block.
On Friday afternoon, the group went to Museo Taurino and Valencia bullring. We visited different places in the bullring and played to be bulls and bullfighters once inside. We had a one-hour tour and learned about Spain and Valencia bullfighing. The kids saw stuffed bulls and learned how bulls are prepared for each bullfight. Olè!
On Friday night, 8 kids went with Israel F to the Hombres G concert. The venue was packed and full of energy. They could enjoy the music from one of the most famous spanish rock/pop bands of all time.
On Saturday they visited the Fallero Museum where they could see the Ninots (like big dolls or puppets that are displayed in March during the famous "Fallas Valencianas") that werent burnt as the tradition demands. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Falles
On behalf of the Valencia team ( Victor, Melissa, Kyle and Israel F) I must say we are totally happy to have this talented and wonderful group. This group is very special and unique! Be proud you are their parents or guardians! We feel happy when they tell us everyday that you are the most awesome family!
