A Taste of Madrileño Culture
This week, we had an opportunity to explore the food, art, music, and dances of Madrid.
*We took a cooking class and made some paella, tarta de Santiago, tortilla española, and gazpacho.
*We tried our hands (pun intended) at playing el cajón, an instrumental accompaniment to Flamenco.
*We visited an artist to learn about the current art scene in Madrid and got to let some of our own creative juices flow when we painted ceramics.
We also learned about the roots of Flamenco and even tried out some choreography (we are great at it, thank you for asking).
Este fin de semana, we'll spend relaxing with our host families.
¡Hasta la próxima!
