Malaga 2015

Day 1: First day, first cultural experiences and first meeting

On Friday, the first day in Málaga, the German students and the students from Barcelona arrived at once and took the bus to the hotel together. Because we stayed in the same hotel and had the chance to get to know each other more better. After a common lunch in a spanish restaurant we were able to get to know some cultural aspects of the spanish kitchen. For example the spanish people eat a lot of fish. We walked all together to the city of Málaga along the beach which was awesome because the great weather was great. So everybody was in a good mood since we could enjoy the great view of the sea and the city of Málaga. When we arrived in the city we had time to go to the harbour, buy some souvenirs or have a walk in one of the fantastic parks. In the evening, the teachers had planned to have a dinner all together in a restaurant. The teachers paid attention that we all sit in mixed groups, from each country one person. So, we talked a lot with the students from the other countries, we laughed and had fun. Besides, we learnt even more about the spanish culture. Namely that the mealtimes are very different to ours, for example the dinner is much later. At the end of the day, everybody was tired of the exciting day, but also lucky and everybody was looking forward to an awesome week.


Day 2: Young Europeans discovering the ancient roots of Málaga

Our multinational Erasmus+ group with students from England, Spain, French Guyana, Slovenia and Germany visited the Alcazaba in the city of Málaga on Saturday the 9th March 2015. Sunshine and about 20°C were best conditions for a relaxed trip to ancient ruins. We took the bus from our hotel to get to the city and walked to the hill where Alcazaba and Teatro Romano are located.

The Alcazaba is the best preserved Moorish fortress in Spain. It was built from 10th to 15th century to defend the city against pirates. Therefore, the Moorish constructed an outer and inner wall that protected the fortress and was connected to the city defensive walls in earlier times. Alcazaba is located on a hill so you have an amazing view over the whole region of Málaga. Our group walked a lot through the old walls of the castle, climbed the stairs and towers and took photos under orange trees.

Before we visited the Alcazaba we viewed the oldest monument in Málaga city, Teatro Romano, on foot on the mountain. It is one of the only remaining Roman ruins in Andalucía. Teatro Romano was built in the first century BC by the Romans under Emperor August. Later, the Moorish settlers used stones from the theatre to build the Alcazaba.

After that it was hidden for centuries, the theatre was rediscovered in 1951 and opened in 2011 after reconstruction to the public. Both Alcazaba and Teatro Romano are absolutely worth visiting. Near the theatre there is now a visitor centre where we watched an animation film about the Roman theatre and its history. Unfortunately, the film was only in Spain so most students didn't understand it. But the Spanish students explained it to the others so that they know the content. During the trip we had excited multicultural conversations among ourselves in English, Spanish and French. Following this interesting excursion we went to a restaurant together and ate some typical Spanish food for lunch.


Day 3: Sevilla

On Sunday we went to Sevilla. It’s a town in the west of Malaga. Our bus journey lasted two hours thirty. First we walked along the river Guadalquivir and had a social experience interacting with people from different cultures. At 12 we went for lunch down a shifty alley and had meals such as tapas and chips. After lunch, we had a tour of a catholic church and explored the area some more. We then took the coach back to Malaga where we ate and played on the beach.

Day 4: Working at school

On Monday, we passed our first day at school. After arrived at school, the french guyanas, slowenian and german students presented their interesting presentations which were about many different topics of air. The french guyana guys talked about air allergien and different kinds of wind for example the desert sahara. After that we did some practical work. The slowenians showed us how to create a quiz app for an android mobil phone. At the end the germans presented their school and gave some information about zeppelin and the air pollution in Stuttgart. They also talked about the chemical aspects. At 1 o’clock we had lunch at school and we traveled one hour to guadal horce by bus during we enjoyed the wonderful landscape. When we arrived we took some photos in front of a lake with the fantastic sun. At 2:30 p.m. we walked through a dark cave and then the walk started. We climbed on the top of the mountains about 2 hours. Finally on top we enjoyed the wonderful view with lots of sunrays. During we walked downstairs we talked to many different pupils from different countries. Arrived down we ate an ice cream and drove back to our hotel. In the evening we went to a pizzeria where we had a great meal.
