Hello! I´d like to tell you where I was from December 26 to 30. After passing some great days with Olivia, she took me to Raquel´s house on the 26. I could have a day to rest, because the next day Raquel´s family and I went to Barcelona!

It was a long trip, but when we got there we were very excited. We arrived at Raquel´s grandparents’ house in the evening, so after resting a bit we went for a walk around the neighborhood that is called Gran de Gràcia.


             The next day we woke up early to visit the whole city, so we took the touristic bus. 

I could see lots of things like “la Sagrada Familia”, “la Casa Mila” and “la Casa Batllo”, that were built by the famous architect Antonio Gaudi, some important squares and the Port. 


                         We stopped there for lunch and we ate a delicious fideuá. It was really nice!


In the afternoon we visited “el Parque Güel”. It was also built by Gaudi. It´s very unusual, but I liked it so much because it´s very curious and colorful.

The next day we went for a long walk from our house to the Port. We could see some monuments again, and we passed through the most important streets, to see the beautiful houses and the “Gothic Neighborhood”. We also crossed the “Rambla”, a very long street full of stalls. I liked it, but it was full of people.

  We stopped in the Colon Square, right next to the sea.

                           Then we took a little ship that gave us a tour of the Port. It was a nice trip.
                           In the afternoon we rest and we went for a walk around the neighborhood.

On the 30 we prepared everything to come back to Madrid. We arrived home at half past three after a five hours trip, more or less. I have really enjoyed these three days, and I liked Barcelona so much. It has been a beautiful experience!

Olivia and Scaffy's Christmas

Hi everyone and merry Christmas!
I’ve had a lot of fun these past days!
On December 21st, after school of course, I went to Olivia’s house (again!) because I was staying with her until the 26th


That day she showed me the beautiful “Belén” (nativity scene) she has in her living room and she took a picture of me next to it.

The first two days we just rested. We were both really tired and just wanted to relax. We read, we watched movies, we listened to music… and we slept a lot!

On Christmas Eve we were busier. Olivia’s family had most of the things prepared for that night’s dinner but, as always, there were some little things to buy. Everyone was really excited and I wasn’t an exception. This was the first time I celebrated Christmas abroad!


The dinner was delicious! There were prawns, iberic sausages, “foie gras”, consommé, turkey... I tried “turrón” (nougat) and “polvorones” for the first time.  Both of them are Christmas sweets typical from Spain. I was so full and tired that I fell asleep immediately that night.


The next day was Christmas! Olivia woke me up really early and we had a lot of fun opening presents! We played with them until lunch time and then had a wonderful meal.

The next day Olivia took me to Raquel’s house. They chatted and then Olivia said goodbye. I think she was a little bit sad so I gave her a big hug. Now I am with Raquel and I am going to have the best holidays ever!

"El Gordo"

Yesterday afternoon, I went with Richard to buy a Christmas lottery ticket.  It's really famous in all of Spain
and there are a lot of prizes.  That's why it's called "El Gordo", which means "The Big One".  I hope I win!  I'll keep my legs crossed!

I'm one of the Three Kings!

Hello! Here I am with my friends Guillermo and Oscar.

I went to their house because they had already decorated the Christmas tree.  They have been very good, as you can see in the picture.

Christmas Preparations with Belén!

This week was special because we had two more days of vacationsAnd I wanted to go with Belen. She told me we were going to go to the mountains to play in the snowbut at the end we couldn’t go. But we did a lot of things:
The classes ended on Wednesday and it was a quiet daybecause we were a bit tiredWe organized the homework of Belen and then at 22.30  THE VOICE began.  Do you know it? The Coaches of the program are MalúMelendi, Rosario Flores and David BisbalThe next day there was no class so we saw it complete. I love it! And I want to see it next Wednesday.

On Thursday we went to ‘’SAN SEBASTIAN DE LOS REYES’’to ... IKEAWe had to buy the desks of Belen and her brother, AndrewIn the morning already we were there, we were there all day, and we had to find furniture and ideas for their new home (they recently moved). When we returned we assembled the desks and I had a good time!

Friday was another quiet day.  We were tired after assembling the desks. I loved the views from the Belen’s room and I spent a good time there.

I was also seeing the catalogue of presents for Christmasand I saw a lot of very pretty stuffed animalsI'm looking forward to the gifts and festivals!

The next day we started to decorate the Christmas treeThis year we chose to put three colors: gold, blue and purple. We put ballspresentssnowflakes,stars, angels, bows and a lot more!
I love decorating the Christmas treeIt’s so funny and beautiful.

The last day we made the Nativity Scene.  In Spain, it is called Belen and it’s so incredible because I was with Belen this weekend!  First we put the floor, then the grass, sand, and then snow! Don’t panic, it’s false!  At the end we put the figures on the snow.

These five days with Belen I've had a great time and I hope that the other days I’m going to spend with you are equally or more fun.

Eugenia's Geography Exam

Today I went to Eugenia's house. She has an exam of Geography...It's so difficult, but I think that if I study like her 
(so hard), I will learn a lot of mountains and seas!! 

And I did it, I took a chair and I studied....

A weekend with Mary!

Hi everyone! This weekend I went with Mary to Toledo the capital of Castilla-La Mancha. 

 It is a beautiful city full of history in which I learnt a lot but I ended very tired because we walked a lot.  We had a great time!
Now I´ll tell you some of the of the monuments and places we visited: the doors of new hinge and  sun, the Mosque of Christ the Light, Old St. Domingo church (where El Greco is buried), the Monastery of St. Juan of Kings, Zocodover Square…and many other places!
Then we went to a neighbouring village called Bargas to visit some friends of Mary's and  we really hit it off.  Everyone wanted to play with me but I was very tired so I preferred to take a nap. Then I saw the match ``Atlético de Madrid-Real Madrid´´ in which``Real Madrid´´ won 2-0!
On Sunday I relaxed after a long day and Mary did her homework. We prepared for a new day of school.
