Greetings from Madrid....finally!!!

      Greetings from Madrid! I've finally arrived after 10 days of travel.  My program through Syracuse University had an introductory "Study Tour" that allowed us to travel in a group of about 30 to visit several villages and larger cities.  Within this group I also had to find a potential roommate for the host family situation.  That was slightly scary but I met a very nice chica- Gabby- and we get along very nicely.  So, on the tour we visited:

  • the medieval village of Besalu (picture above)
  • Roses a fantastic beach village (above)
  • Teatro-Museo Dali

  •  the Monastery of San Pedro de Rodas
  • the fantastic town of Gerona where we saw a Judio Bonastruc and the Catedral de Gerona
  • favorite place so far, so gorgeous and special

The Sagrada Familia...ok this was astounding and so incredibly beautiful

Park Guell: this is basically designed by Gaudi and is gorgeous!

      Well, that's all for now folks...the trip has just begun and pictures are more to come!
