Day 6: 15th August – Orange Group
We are now adjusted to Spanish time with people using the free time in the middle of the day for its intended purpose – a siesta, otherwise known as a nap. However, those with enough energy to spare after a very active first few days headed to a nearby outdoor pool to cool off and make use of the showers!
In the evening, our hosts organised an amazing concert of Spanish music and dancing. Some attempted to copy the dance steps and ended up doing dome impressive ballroom dancing, whilst others decided the Macarena approach was better and proceeded to engage a large group of followers of various nationalities. It was also a great opportunity to swap items with the other groups. The highlight of this was that we managed to gain an Italian cowboy style hat in exchange for a bottle of ketchup. This Italian clearly felt passionate about the red stuff! (And we clearly did not…)
Another conquest for our team was the persuasive bartering for a German hat that Lewis managed to succeed in. They didn’t seem to want to give in easily, as they love their hats! But, after a while, and a lot of negotiating, the German gave in and Lewis got his hat!
The following say was the last in Zaragoza, so in the morning, there was a farewell Mass, which was incredibly hot! Although it was much longer than a normal Mass, due to numerous translations of some parts, it was a nice end to our time in Zaragoza.
We are now very excited for what awaits in Madrid!
For now, it’s back on the coach… Again….
