Hola Hola Coca Cola!

One more week left  behind  : (  sniff, sniff )

Last week was full of adventure,culture and soccer. The week started with a visit to one of the most famous porcelain companies around the world: Lladró. The kids had the chance to see the whole process a porcelain has to go through to reach that magnificent elegance, perfection and beauty that is very common in Lladró pieces.

On Tuesday, we started our Spanish Film Series that we offer each year to our students for free. We screened Oscar winner film "Mar Adentro" at school.

On Wednesday, we went to the park to relax a little bit. Some students played volleyball, some others played frisbee or ran. One of our students took his guitar with him and played and sang great songs to us. We have potential artists in the group!

Last Thursday was for biting nails and testing heartbeats. Spain played Portugal as part of the Eurocup semi-finals. After 120 minutes the game ended 0-0 and the only way to get the finalist was through penalty kicks that bring a lot of tension. Spain won 5-3 and reached an Eurocup Final for third time in its history. In fact, if Spain wins on Sunday Night it would be the first time in history that an european team wins two Eurocups and a World Cup in a row. In that case, your kids would be part of spanish soccer history and better than that they would be living it in Valencia with their host families. 

And..... and.... and ....... Friday came with a great excursion  to Barcelona. It was a total success!!!We left Valencia around 6:03am.We visited the famous Sagrada Familia first. Some kids had the chance to see the interior and some others decided to go shopping around the place. It was so beautiful and nice! We had lunch in a famous park called Parc Guell. This was designed by the famous architect Antoni Gaudi. We also walked along Paseo de Gracia and saw  Gaudi´s Casa Mila and Casa Batllo facades. At the end of the visit they had free time to explore Las Ramblas, the Gothic Quarter, the market and the Port. It was simply fantástico! On our way back to Valencia we celebrated Brianna's birthday with candies and plenty of congratulations.

Best wishes from all your kids . They told me to say: We love you family  and  HAPPY 4th of July! Long Live America!
