Viaje a Cork 2014: 25 julio
Las temperaturas van en aumento y es hora de ir a la playa. La barbacoa anual ha tenido lugar en Crosshaven, un pueblo bonito con una pastelería tradicional con el ‘Padre Pío’ colgado entre los dulces. Fuimos a una cala solitaria. Todo el mundo traía salchichas, hamburguesas y otros aperitivos que cocinaron los alumnos y compartimos entre todos. Después de comer nos bañamos en el agua sorprendentemente calentito y charlamos con la gente del pueblo. Un buen fin de curso que fue doblemente grato por las noticias que 2 de los alumnos, Nico y María, habían aprobado el First (B2) de Cambridge.
The weather has been heating up so it was time to hit the beach. The annual BBQ took place in Crosshaven, a quaint seaside village complete with a traditional sweet shop where if you look carefully, you may see the religious icon of “Padre Pio” hanging amongst the confectionary. It was a different location to previous years. This afforded the students a more intimate experience as we had the little cove to ourselves. Everyone bought along some traditional Irish sausages, burgers and other snacks which were shared and cooked by the students (Although the group leaders may argue that they did most of the cooking!) After the feast it was time to take a dip in the remarkably warm waters of the public beach where the students mingled with locals and cooled off in the sea. A lovely end to the academic course which was also cause for celebration as news came from Seville that Nico and Maria had passed their first certificate exams!
