‘ENGLISH’ CAMP IN CAZORLA…
Our trip to Cazorla began here, in Barcelona, exactly at 5 or so in the
morning at the airport. We all were very tired because we hadn’t sleep so
much, but anyway… the flight was very calm, so we could sleep a bit even
though it was shorter than we expected.
When we arrived to Granada, everybody was eager to do something funny,
but we had a surprise: a bus would carry us to the hotel, which was far
away from where we were. Fortunately, we stopped at half of the trip to
have a break and stretch our legs. We had already met some people of the other institute, so during the rest of the
trip we were talking each others.
When we finally arrived to the hotel, we make the groups of the rooms, with people of others institutes, and then
we had some free time before we start the first activity. In that activity, the monitors gave us some clues written in
Morse and we had to discover what it was and made us a photo with it. I think this was the only activity we did in
‘English’, notice the quotes… because the monitors who knew English left that day.
Later that day, after a few hours of free time in which we had time to have a bath, to go to the pool, to meet the
monitors better and play table football with some of them and a lot more things, we went to a little ‘museum’, I love
the quotes XD, and then we had time to buy some refreshment and food in a supermarket near it, but as George
Clooney says, no Martini, no party…
That evening, when we went to have dinner, we discovered another important thing, the food, except the one we
had in our rooms, would be bad almost all days. That night we ate beefsteak-show sole, some dried-fried potatoes
and some soup… oh… and the best: one yogurt, but most of us took one or two for our personal buttery. Oh, I nearly
forget, the trays were like the ones of the army.
Later, we went to a disco. The disco was not so good, but neither so
bad… it was a pub I think. Some of us were dancing, others were bored
outside and others were playing table football. Arnau, asked the barman
if he could scratch and he accepted, so all the times we went there the
music was more or less good. When we went outside, after we had
thought that we were going to die drowned, we discovered that we
could see the starts! Oh, the starts… we thought that they had
disappeared… the night there was fantastic, and the weather too.
The next day we did a lot of activities. After having breakfast we went to the
Guadalquivir and we made three groups. Each group would do a different
activity and then we would change.
I started doing canoeing. It was not so difficult once you had mounted on
your canoe. A lot of people fell down, and the water was really cold. Later,
the people who were doing aqua – hiking threw down of the canoe the rest.
As I have said, the water was very cold, but after a few minutes inside it,
you started to feel more comfortable, and it was a very pleasant sensation,
because the water was very clean.
After that, we changed of activity and I did aqua – hiking. We used wetsuits,
so we didn’t feel so cold as before. And at last, we did archery. We were
very bad, and only a few persons managed to hit the target.
Then we had the rest of the morning and part of the afternoon of free time. We all did different things… Ones went
to a partner’s room, others went to the swimming pool, others went to play billiards o r table football… Until about
six o’clock, when we did another activity. It consisted in a circuit formed by a climbing wall, two chain bridges and a
Tyrolean. While we were waiting our turn, we were playing with the ‘guard’ dog of there. It was very playful and love
to play with people.
That night we went to the disco again, and after that we return to our rooms and cooked almost all our food,
because that was the last day that we would spend there. The people of my room and I started to play poker and
square, it was a pity that they were only boys, because if there had been some girls, we would have played strip
The next day was the most boring of all. In the morning, we spent a lot of time in the bus travelling to a museum and
to the ‘Parque Cinetico’. The first one was a bit boring. What’s more, in the
theoretically best part of the museum, the film, a lot of people almost fall
sleep. We were very tired…The second part was better, we saw a lot of
animals: deers, and… and a few more I don’t remember their names.
After having lunch, we took the bus which would carry us to the airport
again, where we ate something before going to Barcelona again. We had
some problems there, but finally we could take our flight. It was short, but we
spent a lot of hours in different buses, so we all were very tired and wanted
to arrive home and sleep a bit.
