We are enjoying sunny Valencia!

Dear families in USA,

I am glad to let you know  that our first week in  Valencia has been great! The flight to Madrid arrived a little bit late due to air traffic in Chicago but Spain was waiting for us. We arrived in Valencia early afternoon and host families were anxious to meet their american kids. The kids spent the weekend with their host families eating paella valenciana, valenciana salad and sweet valenciana oranges. They also used those two days for recovering from the jet lag. Day one was for the orientacion with students and host families. They also had their fist day in the restaurant where they  had their first contact with spanish food. During the first week they ate squid, paella with rabbit, valenciana salad, merluza (kind of fish), tortilla española ( scrambled eggs with potatoes and rice) and much more yummy, yummy food!. We visited Old Valencia last Thursday and they learned about  Valencia important historic sites such as Serrano Towers, The old City Hall, The Cathedral and the Virgin Square. The trip ended in a traditional market where they bought fruits and could see the different food valencianos buy. Our fist excursion also took place this week. Last Friday we went to montainous and rocky Cuenca in Castilla-La Mancha region. Cuenca is very famous for its hanging houses and  beautiful landscape. Guess what?  During the weekend your kids are going to the beach to enjoy the mediterranean sea and sun ( with  sunblock and many  big bottles of water!).

Greetings for fantastic Valencia!
