On Sunday I took the opportunity to photograph some detailed aspects of the town and to watch some artists at work on the streets.
Today I returned to work and assisted in four classes, grades 3, 4, and 6. They are doing very well with their English. I read verbs to one class today and had them mime the actions. Another class worked in small groups to attempt to solve a riddle. They could ask "yes" or "no" questions, but only in English.
After school, Cody, Tamara (another assistant), and I went downtown and had lunch at a restaurant called Maimonides, named after the medieval Jewish philosopher from Spain. I ordered a two course meal of paella and pork. Both were very good. The paella included full-bodied shrimp (the first I have ever eaten) and mussels with rice and peas, all flavored with saffron. I wish I had had my camera with me because it was a very interesting-looking dish. One which I will surely order again.
