Ireland 2007: Day 7 - The Burren

We boarded the bus this morning and headed out to see the "limestone desert" the Burren. We drove through a few towns and Doris told us about the Oyster Festival in one.

We stopped at a burial temple for our first photo stop of the day. It was amazing to walk on the ground virtually covered in limestone. We had a group photo for our last full day together (uncomfortable for those sitting on the stone wall!).

Off to Kilfenora Village where many attended the 11:00am Mass in the Parish of St. Fachanan. Mass was very nice, very quick and we heard about the financial struggles of the parish.

Others roamed the litle village and everyone enjoyed lunch.

Hi there this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know if
blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

Barcelona - Dos

Day two in Barcelona has been fantastic!

Jose gave us lots of information on the artist Gaudi - not born here but arrived in 1852 to attend the university.  His artistic style and influence can be seen across the city.

We stopped at Park Guell which was an amazing outdoor area Gaudi designed near the home he lived in.  Inspired by nature, fairy tales and classical legends the park is beautiful.  With its kissing benches, 'candy house', salamander and plaza with the longest bench in the world it is a work of art in itself.

Some of us made the walk up to the top where the three crosses are - and found even more breathtaking views of the city.

From there we headed back downtown for a short walk to La Sagrada Familia cathedral.  Design by Gaudi and still not yet finished, it is very unique and ornate.  Just walking around the outside, Jose had enough informatiion to share about its intricacies that it took some time.  The line for entrance was nearly wrapped around the church.  Jo…


First our morning started with an alarm - or a lack of one; as Mary Jane and Pat's room never received a wakeup call.  So everyone else was on the bus ready to go when they finally got a knock on the door.  What troopers they were, though!  In 15 minutes they were on the bus with everyone and not long after they were able to laugh at the 'chaos' of it all.

Our local guide Isabel was just delightful - and clearly has a love for her city.  She tells us that filmmaker Pedro Almodovar is from here as we begin our walk.

First we go through the old Jewish center.  Nearly all of the city's buildings are white-washed (originally by the women we hear).

We stop at an old Jewish synagogue and learn some history of the area.  Then we stop at the statue of a famous rabbi (can you name him?) which legend is that by rubbing his foot and then touching your own head you will get taller and wiser.  most of us did that - some hoping for extra height, others for a bit of wisdom!

Granada - Dos

We next drove to downtown Granada where we checked into our hotel and had some free time.  Several of us met up with some special guests later while others explored the city on their own and enjoyed some of its finer offerings.

Our special guests were from the University of Granada's GRIIS Program - the one Stonehill has a partnership with for our students to spend a semester.  Amalia and Teresa work for GRIIS and they coordinated a lovely walk down the Avenido de Constitucion with Jessica '14 and Elyse '14 as well as Sara '12 (who has returned to Granada for a year after graduation to get post-graduate work done).  All five of them were welcoming and informative.  We saw some of the university and heard some history of the city, and some current facts as well:  300,000 people live in the city but 100,000 are students!!  This was apparent as the whole city has a college-town feel to it.

Check out more about the program:  GRIIS Program

We all gathered for dinner and wer…
