Paris - Louvre


After Notre Dame we had some free time in Paris!!

While we split into groups everyone visited the Louvre. A ENORMOUS museum featuring more than 35,000 pieces in its collection - including the Mona Lisa! This painting was a gift to Louis XIV from da Vinci upon his death and was housed at Versailles for years and is now part of the Louvre's permanent collection. The crowds here were the biggest!

Another highlight was seeing the Venus de Milo! There's no way we could have seen everything - but everything we saw was beautiful!

Other free time activities included stopping by the Shakespeare and Co. Bookshop, shopping on the Champs Elysees, and some great dinners.

We even saw some of Paris by night!! Another great day!

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.
