Farewell Dinner

After a very enjoyable day in Siena and San Gimignano we freshened up and headed to the local restaurant for our Farewell Dinner.

We said our goodbyes and thank you's to Karin, who offered some very lovely words about our group, our trip and about Italy.

About midway through our meal a group at one table began tapping their glasses to get everyone's attention and Frank stood up to offer a toast. Others followed suit with several of our travelers offering words of thanks, comraderie, enjoyment and enthusiasm.

It was such a nice tribute to our group and to Stonehill.

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.
