Each day, 2-3 students will share an aspect of their time in Spain. Here, Yeda M fills in more details about her Wednesday, including the trip to Seville.
In the morning, prior to our trip to Seville, María, my host student, and I ate a typical Spanish breakfast of warm milk, orange, and delicious toast topped with smashed tomatoes, jamón (Spanish ham), and olive oil. It was indeed very delicious!
Yeda M shared a photo of her breakfast – well balanced and yummy!
While we walked along the streets and looked around at the beautiful surroundings, everyone, including me, was chatting and laughing loudly with our Spanish friends. We talked about how Sevilla reflects different periods of Spanish culture and heritage through to the present.

María and I have gotten super close, as we always chat at home with her parents in Spanish. It was nice to see that adding in more people didn’t change our dynamic because our conversation with Flavia and Jess S was truly meaningful and genuine!

The main part of the excursion was the visit to the Catedral de Santa María de la Sede de Sevilla, which was absolutely fascinating and indescribably beautiful. For me, today’s visit was a learning opportunity as well as an opportunity for building unforgettable memories with my Spanish friends.
