Saints in Madrid

Fifth day in Madrid. Today we started at school. Students attended different classes ranging from biology to literature. Mr. Garikes and I had a chance to observe two English immersion classes with first and second graders and then upper grades. After lunch, some students spent the afternoon with their hosts at the movies and other activities. Others joined Mr. Garikes and I in strolling two of the most important museums in Madrid, the Thyssen-Bornemisza and the Reina Sofia. We immersed ourselves in an array of works of art. Picasso, Monet, Van Gogh, Dali, ....
Tomorrow a History teacher from the school volunteered to be our guide for the day. We will visit the Royal Palace, the Prado museum and the Retiro park. In between, we will continue to treat ourselves to some cafe con leches, tapas and of course, LOTS of Spanish!
