La Práctica (The Internship)…

Yesterday morning, an important milestone was marked in my life: it was the first time I worked it 9-5 (or 9-12:30, in my case) at my first internship!!!!…Now what exactly do I do???…Let me explain…

For the time being (that is, until the end of April), I work at the Museo del Comercio (Museum of Commerce) in Salamanca…Considering the name, it’s not hard to guess what kind of museum it is…

…My place of occupation…

Now, my 2 main duties are very simple: 1) I have to follow around the guides and observe how they interact with/explain the exhibits to the various groups of people who visit the museum, and 2) Translate various parts of the website into English…Yesterday, I observed my coworkers (I sound so professional!!) work with two groups of schoolchildren…The first group was a bunch of 3-year-olds (preciosos–but a tad bit uncontrolable)…The second group was easier to handle, considering that they were a little older (5-year-olds)…

So yeah, that’s it…And, of course, here are some more photos!!!!…

…Miguel, mi jefe (The Bossman)….

…Three of my colleagues: (Can’t quite recall her name right now), Marga (short for Margarita), and Alicia…

…The 3-year-olds…

…Some objects from the exhibits (the last one is some sort of object from the time of Hadrian–epic win [I’m an Ancient Rome nerd])…

And now for a shameless plug (If you’re ever in Salamanca, hit us up, :-)):
