American Exchange Students at La Senda!

La Senda once again had the pleasure of hosting some American exchange students for over a week! The students are from Virginia Beach, USA and had a fantastic time exploring Spain and its culture. Our students will fulfill their part of the exchange in September when they travel across the Atlantic to visit their American counterparts and experience a day in American high school as well as many other activities!! The students toured the center of Madrid visiting all the main sites and a handful of art museums, they also went to Toledo and ventured to the hometown of Miguel de Cervantes, Alcalá de Henares! A special thanks to all the students, parents and families who make this exchange possible, and a special shout out to Ms. Sánchez for making it all possible!
