In the morning on Monday, May 20, we had two speakers come in to class to speak to us about the economic crisis in Europe, specifically in Spain. The speakers gave us two different perspectives on the crisis. The first speaker was from the political party Izquierda Unida (United Left) and he discussed the economic crisis from a political perspective. Our second speaker was spoke about the crisis from a business perspective. The different views on the economic crisis helped us to better understand the situation here in Spain.
Monday afternoon we had some free time. Many of us spent it studying for our final the following day on Tuesday, as well as spending time with our host families since we do not have much time left!
Monday evening we all headed to Candido with one member of our host families for our cena de despedida (farewell dinner). This restaurant is one of the best in Segovia to try the Spanish delicacy cochinillo (baby pig) - many of us took advantage of the opportunity! While it was sad to think of our trip coming to a close, we all had a great time enjoying the company of our host families and delicious food!
