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 were joined by Elyse, Sara, and Jessica.

France - Day Three

Day three: This morning we boarded our bus along with driver Jorge and our local guide Antoine for our morning  sightseeing tour of Paris.  Our tour included many of the landmarks recognized throughout the world such as the Opera House, the Madeleine Church, the Place de la Concorde, the Champs Elysees, the great Arc de Triomphe,  and the Eiffel Tower. Due to the tragic fire, we were unable to see the majestic Notre Dame Cathedral but we did visit the Church of Saint Sulpice, where, as Fr. Tony shared with the group, Blessed Father Moreau was sent to receive training in seminary formation. It was quite special to be in the Church where Father Moreau has celebrated Mass. From Saint Sulpice we headed to Les Caves du Louvre for a wonderful wine tasting where we learned about the three different french varietals as well as the bottling and cork selection process. Our tasting included a quiz of our olfactory system to detect various components to French w

Ireland 2007: Day 5 - Guest Speaker

This morning we experienced our first minor catostrophe - the hotel had NO hot water. Which meant 90% of us were treated to "an exhilerating" wake up this morning, to quote Lisa. But we took it in stride, as this was one of our only glitches on the trip and the weather - for the 5th consecutive day was near 20 degrees (Celsius) - I'll let the readers do the math! We headed out to Univeristy College - Dublin for our first guest lecture. Prof Finnegan had used his connections to get John Coakley, a VERY prominent political scientist and head of the Institute for Irish British Studies. John began by providing a brief overview of the Irish Historical Revolution - beginning with 1169 and the Norman Settlement, through the Gaelic Revival of the 14th century and the English and Scottish settlements of the late 16th century. To illustrate his points he showed slides depicting various flags: The Cross of St. George and the Cross of St. Andrew (English and Scottish respectively)
