CIEE ALCALÁ-SPRING 2014- Elizabeth Von Keller (Wofford College): bakeries in ALCALÁ DE HENARES.

Las Panaderías de España


Cada  lunes y miércoles,  mis amigos, Ian, Nancy, Laura y yo tenemos un descanso en mitad de nuestras clases. Durante nuestro descanso, vamos a una panadería, Granier, para tomar café y comer una tostada o una napolitana de chocolate.

En Alcalá y el resto de España hay muchas panaderías y buenas, suerte para nosotros, los dulces y el pan son ¡muy baratos! Puedes comprar los pasteles, pero muchos españoles compran pan para llevar a la casa para comer con el almuerzo o la cena. Me gustan las panaderías porque son muy deliciosas y ¡baratas! Podemos comprar tres triángulos de chocolate (un pastel con azúcar y chocolate con la forma de un triángulo) por solo dos euros. ¡Qué genial! Cada día en Granier, hay muchas personas tomando un café y hay muchos grupos de estudiantes que van a Granier para comer un tentempié.  Las panaderías son los sitios para comprar pan o pasteles, pero también, son sitios para pasar tiempo ¡con amigos!


A mis amigos y a mí nos gusta el tiempo en nuestro café favorito para comer pasteles deliciosos y hablar sobres las clases, los amigos o nuestras experiencias en España. Hay muchas panaderías en cada calle porque las panaderías son muy importantes para la cultura de España, para ambas cosas: comprar la comida para llevar a las casas y el tiempo social.

Bakeries in Alcalá


Every Monday and Wednesday, my friends, Ian, Laura, Nancy and I have a break in between our classes. During our break, we go to a café, Granier, to drink coffee and eat toast or a chocolate napolitano.


In Alcala, and the rest of Spain, there are many bakeries, and lucky for us, the pastries and breads are very cheap! You can buy pastries, but many Spaniards buy bread to take home to eat with lunch or dinner. I like the bakeries because they are delicious and cheap. You can buy three triangles (a pastry with chocolate and sugar in the shape of a triangle) for on two euros. How awesome!? Every day at Granier, there are many people drinking coffee or groups of students that go there to buy a snack. The bakeries are site to not only buy bread or pastries, but are also places to spend time with your friends.

My friends and I like our time in our café to eat our delicious pastries and to talk about our classes, our friends, or any of our experiences in Spain. There are many bakeries on each street because bakeries are an important part to the culture in Spain, both for buying bread to take home and for social time.
