5th November 2018

We have met all, guys and teachers at the Spanish Institute “ San Viator” at 9.30 a m. The headmaster Luciano Cearsolo and the Spanish teacher Ane, have given us a warm welcome. Then students danced typical Basque dances . We visited the school with all its laboratories where the students work. The job of the students is to repare broken cars like a mechanical workshop. I think that it's a good think to train at school because it is a great opportunity for students learning real job. After, we took the bus and we went to Bilbao where we walked visiting the city with an interesting guide.Afterwords we had lunch in a typical restaurant. After lunch we kept on the tour around Bilbao city. We walked on the Zubizuri bridge. This bridge was built on the Nervión river and it was designed by the architect Calatrava. Crossing the river we could admire definitily all the beauty of the city with its skyscrapers and modern buildings.

               

We could see also the part of the old city and its old buildings.

The tour with the guide finished in front of the Guggenheim museum, a fantastic one full of contemporary art works. In the square is situated a big sculpture all made with flowers that represents a big dog, called Puppy. In the Guggenheim museum there are artworks by Van Gogh ,Picasso, Andy Warhol and other important artists.

In the evening we had dinner all together in Bilbao at La Mary restaurant where we tasted typical Spanish dishes.
