My stay in Málaga was a fantastic experience. I have gained a lot of experience and practice at
work. I visited interesting and beautiful places. In addition, I got to know a new culture and made
friends that I hope will last for many years. I will remember my stay here really well.

I found my stay in Malaga a really enjoyable one, I had the opportunity to work in de Cuchara, a small
restaurant with a pleasant atmosphere. Thanks to my work there, I learned the basics of Spanish
cuisine. it is worth mentioning about the Spanish lessons which were conducted by daniel despite
the fact that the English he conducted lessons was understandable. Málaga has a beautiful beach and
views either from the fortress or from the sea. I would like to come back here someday and learn
more about Spanish culture
