The Spanish exchange visit to Madrid was ¡estupendo! We had a very busy week during which we visited most of the sights of Madrid including the Prado art gallery and the Museo Reina Sofía to see Picasso's iconic 'Guernica'. We also had tour of the Royal Palace, a day in Segovia with it's impressive Roman aqueduct and Alcázar and a tour of Real Madrid's stadium Santiago Bernabéu. Chocolate con churros in Madrid's oldest chocolatería was a definite highlight. The farewell dinner at one of the Spanish parents' restaurants was a lovely way to round off the week. Our new exchange school, Colegio Santa María de Yermo, were extremely welcoming and we very much look forward to returning their hospitality when they come to Hexham for a week on 1st July. I know that the students are counting down the days!
