L'Aquarium

And last in the trio of photo posts (please read Sunday part 3 for the words), from the Aquarium!

More photographs - this time of a magical place!

La Sagrada Familia - some photographs

Señora Stevens has *finally* downloaded her 480 photographs and video clips so here are some ohotgraphs. They really don't do justice to the awe inspiring beauty of the place but might give you an idea.

And anyone who wants to citicise the ohotograph of Miss Harper Mr Dixon and Señora Stevens should bear in mind that Señora Stevens had to lie on the floor, set up her Gorillapod thingy then run to her place, guessing if our heads would be in the picture to take that whilst surrounded by hundreds of other people wandering around. The things teachers do for their pupils...

Sunday - el domingo - el diumenge pt 3

It's very late and still can't add any photographs as my camera (Señora Stevens) is downloading the 480 (yes really!) photographs and videos from today. However, thought you'd like an update.

Since last post, Miss Harper, Mrs Dixon and Señora Stevens have been in a fairy wood - El Bosc des Fades - which was such a great experience that they're going back tomorrow!

They've also visited the Barcelona Aquarium and saw lots of fish, sharks and other sealife.

Then they went to Tapa Tapa and ate some sealife (amongst other things!) before wandering back up Las Ramblas and collapsing in their rooms.

They're all still working now but need to go to bed so -

 

Goodnight - Buenas noches - Bona nit

Sunday - el domingo - el diumenge pt 2

Miss Harper, Mrs Dixon and Señora Stevens are currently having a short break after an action packed morning / afternoon of travelling around Barcelona.

They visited the Sagrada Familia this morning and were absolutely astounded by the beauty of the place. They were also very excited to discover some people dancing in the square outside - there was a band playing and the people just started dancing the typical Catalan dance, the Sardana. So excited in fact that they got off the bus they'd just boarded and ran to get some dancing on video.

After that, they had lunch and spent the rest of the afternoon seeing more sights.

Now they've had a little rest, Miss Harper, Mrs Dixon and Señora Stevens are off to find the fairy grotto that Miss Greenwood so wanted to visit in February when she was in Barcelona with Señora Stevens, and are then going to the Aquarium (hoping noone has decided to have a party today!)

Photographs will have to follow later as ALL of the cameras have flat batteries from taking so many photographs and videos!

CCBarcelona

CCBarcelona* has had its inaugral meeting in Farggi in Plaça de Catalunya.

Can you work out which of your teachers - Miss Harper, Mrs Dixon and Señora Stevens - had which cake?

Saturday - el sábado - el dissabtes

Whilst you were all having a Saturday lie in, Miss Harper and Señora Stevens were up bright and early to go shopping. Not for clothes, but for resources that can be used in our lessons at WCPS. They were very excited in several shops, especially by the tiny door to get into Imaginarium.

Then they went on a metro, a funicular train and a cable car to get to Montjuïc Castle. Señora Stevens was a bit scared on the cable car but there were wonderful views all over Barcelona.

Meanwhile, Mrs Dixon had got up early too and was on her way to Barcelona so, after Miss Harper and Señora Stevens had walked back down the very very big hill via the Olympic Stadium, the Miró museum, lots of steps and some gardens, they met Mrs Dixon back at their accommodation.

They let Mrs Dixon sit down - but only for a few minutes before they were off again to investigate the Port Vell and the beach. A trip to the Aquarium was postponed until Sunday as there was a private party and they had shut half of the fish away from public view!

The day finished with dinner on a terrace overlooking the sea, underneath a sculpture of a fish. Delicious! And, after Señora Stevens' impeccable sense of direction (!) led them to the metro, they arrived at their accommodation ready for a good sleep before Sunday's adventures.

What the travellers did next...

Friday afternoon saw Miss Harper and Señora Stevens moving house (now staying put until they come home), fighting with internet connections and then going to the zoo.

Once more Señora Stevens proved that, whilst she may be able to speak Spanish and Catalan, she is not so good at simple things like reading closing times and heading off in the right direction but they arrived in the end having walked in a circle!

Barcelona Zoo has lots of the same animals as our zoos in England but it is very different. You'll soon see all the photographs and video but one of the biggest differences was how close you could get to the animals. Worringly close sometimes!

They made very good use of their time, staying until they were asked to leave as the zoo was closing, and then went home to change before witnessing a mass demonstration in the main square, having dinner in a beautiful plaza and collapsng into bed with aching feet ready to start again on another adventure tomorrow.

 

Hasta la vista - Until soon - Ens veiem
