Thanks to the students who…



…took me to lunch today and told me that “cava” is Catalan for ”cave” — and that the delicious sparkling wine we were drinking was fermented in an underground cavern or cellar – and that good cava is never more than a year old – and that the finer the bubbles, the better the quality — and that Barça’s president is elected by a vote of all club members (including one at lunch with us) — and that there are people living in Barcelona who support Real Madrid (including one at lunch with us) — and about the antecedents of the Spanish Civil War which ocurred in 1934 — and that politicians are pretty much the same whether they are in Barcelona, Madrid or elsewhere — and that dates wrapped in bacon make delicious appetizers — and that mandarin sorbet makes delicious desert!! But mostly I thank you for reconfirming what a pleasure it is to be an English teacher who has students like you to share learning with. ¡Muchisimas gracias, amigos! Hasta otoño…
