Friday 6-9-13

I have completed my first week of intensive classes at the center!  For the next two weeks I will continue to have Grammar class from 9am-12pm  with a half hour break and Listening 12:15pm-1:30pm.  I usually walk home with my roommate Kiah an eat lunch that our señora prepares around 2:30pm.  This is considered siesta so after we eat I rest or do homework.  On Mondays and Wednesdays I have dance class from 4-5pm in which we are currently learning flamenco.  Tuesdays at the same time I have Cultural Realities class where we talk about our adjustment to living in Sevilla and what we wish to gain from this experience.  After these classes I have free time to explore Sevilla by foot.  I have been walking with Kiah and our new friend Ellie.  On Tuesday we wandered around the center of town where Kiah and I live. Yesterday we walked to the neighborhood called Santa Cruz which I loved because there is a lot of small stores and vendors selling jewelry and art. I will definitely be back there to buy some items!

Also, yesterday was the first “field trip” I went on which was to the Cathedral and to the Giralda.  Each Thursday for the 3 week intensive period we go to a different historical site in Sevilla.  It is the biggest Cathedral in the world. Here are some photos I took yesterday:

The crowns!

The Giralda is the old bell tower and you have to climb and climb the ramps until you reach the top. It is definitely worth the work!
