The first day of mobility was full of activities. First,we had a guided tour during which we visited historically important places in Guadalajara. We visited the Guadalajara Museum, which used to be the family home of the famous Mendoza family. Then we went to the Palacio de la Cotilla or the Palace of Gossip, which belonged to the Marquis of Villamejora, whеre we saw the famous Chinese Room. Nowdays, the villa is used as a municipal art school. We also visited the Chapel of Luis de Lucen, the Alamin Tower, which is the tower of the old wall of the city of Guadalajara, the Church of the Franciscan Order, in which we could see the crypt of the Mendoza family.
After the cultural monuments, it was time to try the famous spanish sweets – churros with chocolate. It was very delicious! Feeling refreshed, we headed to the host school "Ocejon", and the park nearby. In the park, a group of students had the task to present a traditional game from their country. The students enjoyed every game. A dance class with a dance instructor followed after the games. It was a great fun!
Our hosts prepared another surprise for us, a delicious lunch in the park. Along with wonderful Spanish specialties, both salty and sweet, we shared our impressions of the day's and future activities. That was not the end of our day’s experiences. For dinner, we decided to try the Spanish paella with seafood. Some people liked it very much, while others didn't.
