Wednesday (6/29): The group headed to the caves of Soplao and Santillana del Mar! We explored the old caves and learned about the miners who discovered them, as well as the types of rock there. We then headed out to Santillana del Mar to explore the medieval town and have a snack.
Thursday (6/30): Half of the group went to flamenco class, and the other half did a high ropes and zip-lining course. Both groups had a great time, and all enjoyed learning about a new form of dancing and flying above the trees on the high ropes course!
Friday (7/1): It was the last day in Santander for Summer 1! Students received their diplomas, and we had a birthday treat for Lucy and Marguerite. Everyone enjoyed their goodbye dinner at a special restaurant in the city center (Bodega Javi Quintanilla), where we feasted on a lot of typical Spanish food such as Spanish omelets, calamari, and croquettes. Summer 1 departed early on Saturday morning to head back to Madrid, and then home on Sunday.
