Now my host parents are driving me home and I tell them what happened, that is when I find that the man´s name is actually “Juan Carlos” (which is when I made the realization that Doña Sophia is the current queen of Spain, because I knew that Juan Carlos is the current king). It was all embarrassing, but it was also totally my fault for my lack of knowledge.
So Carnaval was this weekend and on Saturday afternoon I went to the “parade,” basically where groups/organizations/schools etc dressed up in these amazing group themed costumes. These are my favorites that I saw.
|There was a group of about 50 people who did flags of different countries.|
|These are two girls in my class and my school did the theme of Toy Story characters.|
|Messi, of course|
|There was like 20 of them, and it was actually kind of a scary sight.|
|Looks like we have found the new pope.|
|Probably on of my absolute favorites|
Later that night, Raquel and I went to a friend´s birthday dinner. After dinner we went to another friend´s house where all of us who were going as angels met to get ready together. After we got ready, we went out to the fiestas! Obviously, I had a great time and a ton of fun. Although I´m normally not a fan of doing costume related activities, I must say, I´m really proud of how our costumes turned out! They were super cute!
