On Thursday evening, 23 Wheatley students and 4 Wheatley faculty members departed for a week in Spain. The first few days have been filled with activity!
Mrs. Martinez provided the following updates on the first two days:
We went to the Seville Cathedral (built in 1409) and saw Columbus’ tomb, where “less than a hamburger” of his remains lie. Gross, right?!? Next, we climbed to the top of the Giralda bell tower, which is very easy to go up, because it is a ramp. It was originally a minaret for a mosque.
We enjoyed the Plaza de España, ornate with beautiful blue, yellow, and white ceramic tiles. There was a Fiat car show surrounding the fountain, a man blowing giant bubbles, and a flamenco group upstairs, making the atmosphere even more fun. We took a boat ride; some of us chose a motorboat and some rowed. Next, we found an international food market, and the kids sampled foods from all over the world, including kangaroo.
Mrs. Stein and Alison Amarain provided the following wonderful photos!
