The last week is finally here, and we have two days left till we head back to the States. Right now, I’m on the train that we took from Camporrobles and we are heading to Madrid to spend our last two days in this Amazing country. What can I say, this experience has been unique, I’m taking a lot of knowledge back with me. This experience has been like a rollercoaster with a lot of ups and downs. I grown more and become more open minded.
On Monday, we got to go to el Molón, which is a historical sight. We got to climb to a the top and learn more about it. El Molón are ancient ruins where people use to live. It was a long hike all the way to the top, but it was worth it.
During the other day of the week we prepared for our theater show very intensly. We practiced a lot, and learned a lot. On Thursday, we went to Cuenca, which is about an hour and half from Mira. We got to tour the city for a few hours. First, we went to the courthouse and got to tour a little bit of it. My favorite site to see were the Casas Colgantes, which are houses that seem to hang off a cliff. We also had an amazing lunch. It was like a barbecue steak, but much better! We also went to the OLd Cathedral of Cuenca, which was beautiful! Around 5 we headed to we perform our little theater show, which we had in a litle museum of art. We didn’t have many guests, but the few that were there made it worth it. It was a lot of fun!
On Friday, we hosted “Sabor de Indiana” for Mira, which was a huge blast. We got to cook and share some of music from Indiana. There were a few teens there, Jackie and I, got them to get on stage with us and we danced the night away, literally! We shared some of our dances, and they shared some of thiers! Lets just say that, that night we made some new friends!
On Saturday, was the big day, we had to prepare for our showing of the “Ecos en los Claustros” en Mira. We practiced a few times that day, and 10 o’clock came very quickly. We had some of closet friends show up to the show, and I had so much fun performing for them.
I learned a lot during my days in Mira, I’m a little upset that it’s all done. I enjoyed my time here. I’m glad to say that I’m taking a lot back with me. This experiece was very unique, and I’m happy I got to be part of it.
