Today in social sciences lesson, some people has arrived to class before me. When we went inside class, there were some papers in every desk about the Madrid's trip. Some people thought that these papers were a surprise exam. In these papers was written the date, the prize (10€) and some more things.
Today the journal's turn was for Andrea but she didn't come to class so the journal's turn was for me and here I am...
When Paqui has said that I had to do the journal someone said that today IS MY BIRTHDAY!!!! and everybody has started singing me the Happy Birthday Song.
Well, then we have continued with the lesson. Paqui continued with the unit 6 to finish it. First we have seen Henri De Toulouse-Lautrec who was a french painter and a lithographer. His favourite themes were cabaret dancers and prostitutes like:
Then we have continued with Paul Cézanne who was a french painter, precursor of Cubism which was the use of geometrical pieces. He used colour to give volume to objects and his paintings became geometrical coloured shapes.
He also painted some bathers:

Paqui has said us a history about a flu epidemic related to the Swine Flu in Europe, spreaded due to the war. Only spanish newspapers didn't censured the flu epidemic news, and in Germany, France and other countries was censured to avoid the spread of the fear in Europe.
