London - Charles Dickens Museum

Chris led us to the local Tube station and showed us the ropes so we will feel comfortable using the system on our own later in the week and we arrived in the area near the Charles Dickens House Museum.

We arrived at what had been Dickens' home and took self-guided tours throughout. Some of us caught the introductory movie (others were afraid sitting in the dark room on little sleep would cause snoring!).

The museum was great - a very impressive library housing the National Dickens Collection, lots of photographs, sketches, hand-written notes, mini-biographies and even playbills were showcased.

We then had some free time to get some lunch and roam the area, which was very nice even though a number of shops and restaurants were closed for Sunday. We met back up at the Museum and boarded our shuttle for a tour of the city.

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.
