Day 15: Friday, September 14th 2018


by Maialen & Oihane

Today was our last day in Scituate, so we got up earlier to finish our suitcases. After that, we went to our last class in SHS. We were there for an hour with our exchange partners.

When the bell rang, we took the bus and went to Plimoth Plantation. The first thing we did when we arrived there was to see a short film about life in the 17th century in this town. Later, we visited the place where there were actors dressed like the Indians who lived there in that century.  One of them explained to us what he was cooking, it smelt so good! Near there, there was another village, the English village, where the people were dressed like many centuries ago.We saw and entered their homes and we also learnt about their jobs. There were animals and they were so cute! We sang with two girls who lived there, it was fantastic! 

On our way back to Scituate we were supposed to visit the 'MAYFLOWER” ship, but they are repairing it, so we couldn’t see it. To finish, we arrived at SHS where our partners were waiting for us. We took our suitcases and we said goodbye to them. This was the end of our trip!

Day 14: Thursday, September 13th 2018


by Iker and Diego

Hi, we are Iker and Diego and today we are going to talk to you about our last full day in Scituate. 
As the day before, we stayed for an hour in the high school having the first lesson with the Scituate students. 
Then we got ready to go to the shopping center called Wrentham Outlets by2 bus. We stayed there until approximately two o'clock and then we left the school in search of our partners.
Mayla and Oihane did something different in the morning. They helped a teacher give her Spanish lessons in a very small school. They talked to her students and tell them about their life in the Basque Country. It was a great experience!
As soon as we returned from the outlet, we came back to our partners' houses until the time of the farewell party. Once it was time for the party, we all got together and enjoyed an afternoon playing games, talking to each other, and jumping on the trampoline. 
Finally, each person went home and prepared the suitcase for the next day.

Day 13: Wednesday, September 12th 2018


by Irene and Hegoa

Hi, we are Irene and Hegoa and we are going to explain our last day in New York.

First of all, after packing our luggage, we took the bus and got a ferry to visit Ellis Island and its museum, which was about the immigrants who arrived at that island and wanted to get into the USA.

Then, we took the ferry again for Liberty Island. There, we saw the Statue of Liberty and took a lot of pictures. It was huge and we were amazed!

After that, we walked around the financial district of Manhattan. While we were walking around Manhattan, we saw very interesting places like the Stock Exchange building, Abraham Lincoln's Statue, the Wall Street Bull...

Once we had lunch, all the group went to the waterfalls of the 9/11 memorial; as you know the anniversary was just the day before. These waterfalls were in the place where the towers of the World Trade Centre were before being destroyed. It was very impressive. Then, we entered the 9/11 Museum. Inside, we got surprised: we could see all the photos, testimonies, phrases, memories and recreations of the tragic day and we were absolutely touched. We didn't have time to visit all the museum, but we would have liked.

Finally, we had to say goodbye to New York and got into the bus. We were a little bit sad, because we didn't want to leave this amazing city.

Bye NY! 🗽🇺🇸💜

by Beatriz & Maider

Today we took a bus at 8:15 am. Five hours later we arrived in New York.

First we went to the Natural History Museum, we spent only 45 minutes at the museum because there was a lot of traffic and we arrived late.

Then we met the guide and we went to a cruise on the Hudson River. During the cruise we saw the Brooklyn Bridge and the Statue of Liberty.

After that we took the bus, we went to Times Square and we had dinner at Bubba Gump Restaurant, which is known for the Forrest Gump movie.

And finally we had free time until 9 pm to go shopping in Times Square.

Day 8: Friday, September 7th 2018


by Nagore, Lucia and Nerea

It’s been another funny long day. The first thing we noticed in the morning was that it wasn’t as hot as the last days, 20º instead of 30º, at last! As everyday, we went to the school and stayed there for an hour, some of us in class and the others in the library. 

Then, we took our loving yellow bus to the Boston Museum of Science. It was really interesting for some of us and a little bit boring for some others, but we all enjoyed the lightning show there, it was awesome!

After the museum we went to the aquarium. We saw penguins, seals and a lot of fishes. The most impressive thing was when we touched stingrays, which were very soft and gelatinous. The aquarium was beautiful, but it made us sad to see the animals inside the fishbowls because we think they should be free.

At 7pm most of us went to watch a football (American, of course) match in the school. It was awesome how people cheered their team! It looked like an American film. The environment was amazing: cheerleaders dancing and singing, a band playing music and, of course, everyone shouting "go Scituate!" The match ended and our team won, so we went back home with our families very happily.

This weekend we won’t write what we do on the blog because we are going to stay with our families and make different activities, however we will publish some photos. 

These are the pictures we took in the Museum of Sciences

And these are the ones we took in the Aquarium
