BLOG 5 (2/2): VIENA, SCHOOL TRIP
The night between 24th and 25th of October was going to be our last night at the hotel and we knew that. We all felt that we had to enjoy this last night, so we started playing FIFA. But not normal football games, if your opponent scored you a goal, you had to drink some nose medicine… On the first game, Kevin (an Austrian boy) and I won Henrik, so he drank it. After his reaction we decided to stop that game, it didn’t look really tasty. We had other adventures related with: McDonald’s, showers, chocolate shops, mixing Mentos and CocaCola, but I’d better tell you more when I am back in Spain… My mother could read this blog!
Waking up on the last day was hard, but finally we did it on time and we had our first activity of the day: visiting a really modern university. At first, we went into a really cool big building that looked like the university… but it was just a library! After this visit I can say that the education system in Austria looks really good (my high-school has made me think the same).I show you here a picture of that building.
After visiting all the university buildings we had lunch and then we went to a synagogue, a Jewish church. At the entrance we were given the typical small black hat that they wear at church. The building was really big and the architecture was very cool, but the guide spoke in German and I was very tired because of the previous night, so I fell asleep in the church. Then we went to the train station and we took the train home. During the two hour trip we felt hungry and we had a funny idea to solve that problem. At the train station there were people giving free “Mediterranean rice” that you only have to put in the microwave for a few minutes and it is ready to eat, so we decided to ask the man of the cafeteria if we could use their microwave oven. After insisting for some minutes, we finally convinced him. The train trip was cool and I must say that although that rice wasn’t as good as Spanish paella it was good too. Finally, we arrived home but the story doesn’t end here. We had been invited to a school party and we decided to go. We thought it was going to be a boring party because it was organized by a school, but surprisingly it was a good party. There were funny performances by the students, places to eat and drink and a cool disco. I met a lot of people there, and a lot of them were learning Spanish, so I think that I could win a lot of money if I became Spanish teacher here.
Well, there have been lots of fun in these three days away but they have been hard too, so now I am going to sleep, I need to rest! Good night!
