Es mi cumpleaños

by leighcburrows

Today is my 21st birthday here in Valencia. I woke up to some cards, including a surprise card off my family and then I left to go to school. I had Toni’s contemporary class and after we would normally have had Veronica’s class but she was ill so we went to do Classical Ballet with Marina. After I had Christine for Contemporary techniques and then Repertory class where we continued to work on the choreography of Nacho Duato. I walked home from class unaware of the surprise the girls had organised for me in our flat, consisting of cake, balloons and presents! Later on in the evening I decided to take a visit to the Cathedral in Colón before our meal out. I walked up the many stairs to the top of the Cathedral tower which gives views out over the whole of Valencia. I walked around the cathedral before heading home surrounded by the lit Christmas lights throughout the town centre. To end my day of birthday surprises we all went to a little italian restaurant in the old part of the town centre which was the perfect end to my 21st birthday! All photos below are taken by myself.
