The opening as you can see here started out in an orderly and responsible manner.
But then when the chocolate was discovered degenerated into a free for all, in fact we were careful that we opened them all one at a time and everyone saw the whole contents, not just the edible parts.
We had a lot of fun as you can see.
I did the opening and things were passed round, Guillema was there taking pictures and Salomè also dropped in briefly, normally she has class at this time.
Looking at the pictures that were taken I can see that Mayte hogged the camera for most of the time. She is in practically all of the pictures.
She especially loved the car. Some of the boys also quickly discovered the topless girls in the German newspapers.
I already knew this was there and showed it to Guillem, if you look carefully it says "only for teachers" and clinked promisingly.
Mariona was initially not too sure about the Polish sweets, but she soon changed her mind.
Guillem faithfully took pictures of most things.
Many thanks for all the Christmas cards, something which is not traditional here and my students didn't think of doing. Perhaps I should mention this, the contents of our boxes are what the students thought of on their own. I gave them a couple of ideas but mostly left them to decide.
When we had finished opening the boxes I got them to prepare the contents of the ones we sent. Which some of them did, the rest had found a German music CD and were already listening to it.
All in all it was a fun couple of hours. I have some students coming tomorrow who couldn't be there on the Thursday, but that's ok as I have kept some stuff for them.
We look forward to the remaining boxes.
