Spending Time in Sevilla, Spain

Hamilton Garber and Audrey Plzak, students on an ISA High School program in Spain, reflect on their time spent in their host city of Sevilla. During the week, students participated in various cultural activities to help them become more accustomed to their new host country and culture while they are abroad.

HS1 - Santa Cruz Quarter

Students exploring the Jewish Quarter in Sevilla.

Last week was the first spent in Seville. I live on a street called Calle San Jacinto, and although it is crowded, I found it pleasant and charming. We took several trips around Seville including visiting the Cathedral and an architectural spectacle called Las Setas. During these trips, we saw beautiful Gothic statues and carvings along with impressive modern buildings. I had a very enjoyable and action packed week, and I learned much about the culture and lifestyle of Spanish people at the same time. – Hamilton

The last week [in Sevilla] was very exciting and fun. We were all pretty comfortable with our host families, and our neighborhoods. We were also able to see the Jewish Quarter. I was a nice, shady break from the boiling temperatures we had that day. The history and architecture was definitely a highlight.

We also explored the river in Seville by kayaking back and forth down the river. It was very fun; we all dove off the kayaks for a short swim before flipping the kayaks trying to climb back in. Later in the week we played soccer with Martín and were all very tired by the end. On  Friday we all came to the ISA Office in Sevilla and joined Enrique to watch him make the best Paia ever! – Audrey
