Hello, this is Josh. Today our instructor Juan took students from the United States and Germany to the museum at the City Hall of Montevideo. It is an interesting place with many historical exhibits including Egyptian, Greek, Roman, and Mesoamerican cultures, and subsequently, that of the indigenous people of Uruguay, among others. Examples of these exhibits are artefacts, diagrams, models, timelines, along with another wealth of information. During the excursion, we mainly focused on the Indigenous American cultures. Thanks to Juan’s adept knowledge and facts of the exhibits, it was not only a fun experience, but also an educational one. It was a good chance to learn more about the culture and the region of South America along with learning Spanish.

Hola. Soy yo, Josh. Hoy nuestro instructor, Juan, llevó a estudiantes de Alemania y los Estados Unidos al Museo de la Intendencia de Montevideo. Es un lugar muy interesante con muchas exhibiciones históricas de la cultura egipcia, romana, griega, las culturas mesoamericanas, subsecuentemente, la cultura indígena de Uruguay, y otras. Ejemplos de las exhibiciones incluyen artefactos, diagramas, maquetas, cronogramas, y otras amplitudes de información. Durante la excursión, mayormente nos fijamos en las culturas mesoamericanas. Gracias a los ricos conocimientos y información de las exhibiciones que tiene Juan, no solamente fue una experiencia divertida sino una educativa también. Fue una buena oportunidad para aprender más acerca de la cultura e historia de América Latina junto con aprender más español también.

Cooking lessons are part of the program at our school and  it now seems that a popular recipe “pastel de carne”  is  even made in the home country of students.  We wonder if we should we ask the rights???                                                                                               

Thanks Diane, Mark and Liz for sharing this picture with us, it looks great!!
