Educational Philosophy

Education is a social process. Education is growth. Education is not a preparation for life; education is life itself.

~ John Dewey

Our simple educational philosphy: we learn as we live and we celebrate what we learn!

Italica y La plaza de Espana

Yesterday as a part of our program we visited Italica an old Roman city. It was very cool to see the ruins up close we just wish we had more time to take pictures for our collection. The city  reminded us of our trips to Bath, Rome, and Verona. Obviously it wasn't as well preserved as some of these places because the Romans left, but it was cool to see how they set up the city in a way that is still continued today roads N to S and E to W. Also it was amazing to see how they built cities to last as there were some houses with mosaics that survived years of sun exposure and are still brilliant today.

Today we went to a museum called Bellas Artes. It is supposedly the second best museum in Spain to the Prado museum in Madrid. It was very interesting to visit it with a group of people because there was such a range of understanding of art and art history. We really enjoyed seeing the pieces that we had studied mulitple times in high school and in college. We took some pictures of the most famous pieces, but the museum itself was very pretty. After the museum we went to parque Maria Luisa and La plaza de Espana. It was very beatiful and we got some beautiful pictures.

Some things we have noticed:
It doesn't rain much here.
Everyone walks to their jobs and consider it a privledge.
Popular foods include: bread, eggs, yogurt, and potatoes.
