Immersed in the Culture
25.05.2015 - 23.06.2015
Here in Castellar, I have been more of a tourist than any other place before. How do I feel about this? Uneasy. How do I handle it? Easy, like any place else I start living the cluture.
The other day I helped paint a picture of the farms here in celebration of the final day of Cultural Week.
While here, I have...
-Attended three concerts (1-younger elementary band concert 2-top Castellar band concert 3-entire school dance performance)
-Been to the Medditeranian Sea numerous times
-Been a hairstyalist
-Small canal ride with friends while visiting Palmar
-Done zumba in the street

-Visited the L'Oceanogràfic in Valencia (marine life)
-Attended a mass (where a window was broken and a girls arm was cut and then a woman fell and hit her head so hard she had to be taken to the hospital)
-Gone fish shopping
-Watched a pot of paella being made and served to over 100 people (paella is meat, rice, vegitables, specific type of bean, sauces and water)
-Practiced my Spain Spanish and taught American English
-Visited historic Valencia
-Seen the Museo Filleros (Fillera Museum is of sculptures made for the yearly celebration)
Looking at it, I've done a lot of tourist things, every day things and cultural things. This is all part of traveling; being able to do some of each, and learn about the culture and about yourself along the way.
