|Sofia points to the pretty flowers.|
|I like seeing palms.|
Before we walked to school, Patricia, the housemaid, served us breakfast. I had fresh orange juice and crackers. Alvaro told me he slept with his gift I gave him from my American university!! So funny. Below is a picture of the same gift I gave Sofia (minus Hello Kitty decor). Go big red! :)
I am using a few Spanish phrases like:
Si, gracias : Yes, thank you
Si, muy buen : Yes, very good
Buenos Dias/ Tardes : Good morning/ afternoon
Como se dece in ingles? (big one for me) : How do you say in English?
Hola, como esta? : Hello, how are you?
Balle (I hear this a lot) : Good
A little about my school day:
I am paired with all boys (grades 1 and 4)... what a day! They are so sweet.. and.. they. are. loud.
The 1st grade boys are not as loud. Today, they had a spelling test with words like downstairs, upstairs, flat, school, and church. They did so well.
I am very impressed with their english.
The school day starts at 9 am.
Lunch hours are between 1:30 to 2:30 pm.
The school day ends at 5 pm.
Wednesdays are short days for my teacher so, my school day ended at 3:45 pm.
I took advantage of this time and walked around.
Below is a picture of my snack at "Nyos Degustacio."
|"Reja de cabello de augel" and pear tea (both good)|
Below is a picture of a candy store and a fruit stand on the Barcelona streets.
The fruit is very good in Barcelona!
