When Alisa Sakura Scott arrived home in Melbourne after a six month stint in Madrid all she could think about was returning to Spain. As an Auxiliar de Conversación (Language and Culture Assistant), she now has the opportunity to do just that. In around one month, she will be back in the city and country that she fell in love with.
When I found out I was going to live in Spain, I imagined food, beach, monuments, culture. But what I overlooked in my daydreaming about the country were the traditions that come with anything that is done. Semana Santa (Holy Week) is one of them and I had no idea what it was and what it consisted of until I found myself in the midst of it.
