I attended my first class trip to Atapuerca, Spain.
It was great to be on my own for a bit, because my host sister didn't go, due to a championship meet in December. It was good to be able to hang out with different people, I got to talk a lot so that was really good for my Spanish. What I enjoyed the most about the trip was just being around teenagers, because my host family just has big kids and the swim team, I mean cmon their athletes, they aren't exactly the type to go out and party. It was fun to be around kids my age and do kids stuff.
Our first visit was the Catedral de Burgos, a enormous church.
The next day we visited a museum about sexual relations between the first humans, please don't ask me how we know that kind of information, because I have no idea.
Next we visited a dig site where the earliest human remains have been found.
Following the dig site we visited an archaeological park of Atapuerca
After that we got to visit a museum on human evolution, very cool.
The next day we visited a Christian monastery, more like a very ornate palace.

  1. Sounds like you had a fantastic time all around. Can't wait to hear your Spanish. I love looking at your pictures.What kind of school cancels class because no one shows?? Fun for you but...Dan is going to Hamilton this weekend. Nana and Papa will join him for the Saturday tailgate party for the Hamilton vs Williams football game. Bowie has predicted the winner. Griffy, Bruno and I will go into DC for the John Stewart rally on the mall to "bring back the sanity". Steven Colbert will also be there. Should be funny. Griffy will be - drum roll - a KITTY - again this Halloween. He did say a Zombie Kitty - whatever that is. Love you tons and super glad you had such a good time - Mimi
