Newsletter 2 - CIEE Palma de Mallorca Spring 2017

With this second Newsletter, I would like to show you with images some of what we have been doing in the past month, including our three-day trip to Madrid, the two-day excursion to Sierra de Tramuntana, a field activity with the language class named Photo Marathon, a volunteer-day experience at a Spanish elementary school, and of course Easter religious parades.

In Madrid, we had a dynamic and participative guided tour of Madrid de los Austrias, the oldest neighborhood of the capital of Spain. We also wandered around the newest part of the city, and as you can see bellow we got the official CIEE Palma group picture of the 0 Kilometer, from where all roads of Spain are measured. Madrid is more than anything a city devoted to Art, so we spent some time visiting the two major museums, Museo del Prado and Museo de Arte Reina Sofía. We also saw at sundown the only Egyptian temple in Spain, Templo de Debod. We did a picnic at Parque del Retiro on a sunny beautiful day, and of course we ate tapas, and more tapas, and more tapas!

Back in Mallorca, we also spent two days in Sierra de Tramuntana, World Heritage Site, which means we walked surrounded by impressive nature landscapes, but also saw historical landmarks, beautiful mountain and sea villages like Deià and Port de Sóller, and spend time together in a mountain refuge.

Already a classic activity in our program is the Language Photo Marathon, in which all students participated.

Once more time this spring we volunteered at Colegio San Vicente de Paul, during their English Day celebration, this year with the motive of TV shows. The children decorated the school for the day, each classroom representing a TV show, such as MasterChef, Want to be millionaire for one day, Pass the word, Sports, etc. Each CIEE student helped an English instructor in a different group, with many games and activities organized throughout the whole morning. Children were son enthusiastic that did not let us take a picture of the group because they wanted to be in… and next day we were on the newspaper!

Other than this, our students attend currently their classes and prepare for midterms and final exams, which are happening in these coming weeks. They also keep learning and working at Cadena Mar Grupo Batle offices, Hotel Caballero offices, Hotel Caballero kitchen, Hotel Java offices, The Hotel Factory offices, Hotel Can Alomar kitchen, FUEIB University Events office, and SuperYatch Events in Palma.
