Hola. Soy yo, Josh. el 3 de diciembre, el instructor, Matías, llevó un grupo de estudiantes norteamericanos y suizos de una excursión al barrio llamado Prado. Es un barrio muy lindo con mucho para hacer. Primero fuimos al Museo Blanes y el jardín japonés al lado. El jardín fue muy relajante y hermoso con muchos árboles, charcos, y koi y el museo tiene varias exposiciones de diferentes tipos de arte incluyendo el arte moderno e histórico. Después, fuimos de paseo en el parque de Prado con su hermosa vegetación, árboles, flores, y otras atracciones hermosas para calmar la mente mientras Matías nos explicó un poco de la historia y cultura de la ciudad. Y para calmar la mente aún más, fuimos a un bar local para probar una bebida llamada la “grappa” y conversamos por mucho tiempo antes de regresar a la escuela y disfrutar del resto de nuestra tarde. Fue una experiencia relajante, educativa, y definitivamente memorable.

Hello. It’s me, Josh. On December 3rd, our teacher, Matias, took a group of students from Switzerland and the United States on an excursion to the neighborhood in Montevideo called Prado. It’s a beautiful neighborhood with a lot to do. First we went to the museum Blanes and the Japanese garden right next to it. The garden was very gorgeous and relaxing with it’s trees, plants, and koi ponds and the museum has many art exhibits including modern and historical art. After that, we went for a walk in the Parque Prado which is a park with beautiful vegetation, trees, flowers, and other things to relax the mind while Matias explained to us the culture and history of the region during the whole trip. And to relax the mind even more, we went to a local bar to try a drink called “grappa” and we socialized for a good while before going back to the school and enjoying the rest of the day. It was a relaxing, educational, and definitely a memorable trip.
