Salamanca Day 10

Today we visited the Casa Lis, an Art Deco museum, with a special exhibit on Gaudí. The stained glass ceilings and walls alone were a site to see. Here we enjoyed some Chocolate con Churros in the charming cafe.

After our museum tour some students did some yoga in the residence trying to work out their soreness from horseback riding.

Later in the evening it was time for Flamenco! We had a blast learning various flamenco techniques, such as palmas (clapping), stomping with a leg swirl, expressive hand and wrist movements, and dramatic spins. We have quite the dancing team this summer!
