So as I sit and stare at my calendar, it becomes more realistic that spring break is nearly 2 weeks away! It is insane to believe that after spring break, our program will be ending in another near 2 weeks! Where has this time gone honestly? There is so much that has happened since my last blog post. However, I haven’t been the best with keeping up on it, so I am going to be posting a few blogs a week to catch you up on the semester that we have had thus far. I will begin with last weekend for starters. All three CIEE programs took a trip to Granada, which was not only beautiful, but a wonderful cultural experience as well. We stayed at Hotel Carmen, which was beautiful to begin with, and the weekend only improved after arriving! After we settled our bags into our rooms, we had a couple of hours of free time to get some lunch. Of course, most everyone went for tapas and beer! Tapas are a much more exciting and unique system in Granada, because upon ordering a beer or sangria, you get a generous portion of a tapa! After our free time to eat, there was a group tour to see the Cathedral. And although it was a great experience to see, a few others and me went up to a small park and captured a great view of the Alhambra, which was amazing as well. It was also spectacular to see the view of the mountains. After that, we went for tapas round 2 and then headed back to the hotel to meet up to see a Flamenco performance. Which by the way was a spectacular experience! They even called a few of us students up at the end to practice our Flamenco skills with them. The next day was our day trip to La Alhambra, which has been associated with one of the seven wonders’ of the world! To say the least, it was extraordinary! Such a must see when you study in Spain!
