Hello everyone!

We were lucky today, weren’t we?  Despite a weather forecast that announced rain, the day was nice. A bit misty in the early morning, low clouds in the mountains around Sóller, but as the morning advanced the sun found its way through the clouds.

Well, now it is your turn to work, you have a lot to do to complete the power point slides. I will upload some photos to flicker and I will  also ask you a few questions about the day.

The train journey. (I)

  1. What were the seats like?
  2. What makes them unusual?
  3. What were the wagons made of?
  4. How many people can fit in a wagon? can you make an estimate?
  5. How many tunnels did we go through?
  6. What were the names of the villages where the train stopped?
  7. Was the train noisy?
  8. What was the countryside like?
  9. Were the almond trees in bloom?
  10. How far is Sóller from Palma?

Wen we got to Sóller, we went to the cemetery.

The Cemetery (II)

  1. What is the name of the cemetery of Sóller?

  3. Which part of the village is the cemetery situated in?

  6. Look at the pictures I have included in the collage. Why did I include some French verses?
  7. Who was Josep Llimona? what is his relationship with the cemetery of Sóller?
  8. Now, I know some of you are very good detectives. Look at the poem in French that we discovered in one of the graves. Who wrote it? Where was the poet born? what is the relation between this writer and Can Prunera?
  9. Had you ever been in a cemetery before?
  10. Do Buddhists or Sikhs have the same rituals to bury their dead ? you’ll need to ask Lovepreet and Hao to find out.

You can check this excellent site to answer some of the questions. In this page you can also find a good collection of pictures of Sóller.
