Hola!Me gustaría decir un gran agradecimiento a Elena y Alberto para dar Mia un maravilloso viaje en Madrid. Ella ha tenido el mejor tiempo y ha tenido la suerte de estar con una familia encantadora. Todos esperamos que Celia y Mia se mantendrá en contacto, e incluso puede llegar a pasar tiempo juntos este verano!También un gran agradecimiento a todo el personal involucrado en las dos escuelas. Ha sido una experiencia fantástica, tanto para los niños y los padres! Realmente espero que las escuelas continúan con el intercambio y que muchos más niños tomarán parte - no es definitivamente una oportunidad se puede perder.Gracias de nuevo!Denise (Mia's Mum)
