Saturday, March 24

Our journey of Spain has come to an end.  Edgecombe Community College's twelve travelers have learned from each other and from our international friends.  This morning we left Seville, stopped in Cordoba to tour the Mosque of the Caliphs (famous for its 850 pillars of porphyr, marble, and jasper),and then returned to Spain, thereby closing the loop.  We returned to the city where it all began 7 days ago.
Sunday as we fly out of the Madrid airport, we'll say good-bye to a rich heritage that started around 1100 B.C., when the earliest colonies were formed.  As the tour guides emphasized, the story of Spain is complex but well worth the study.
I don't know about the others, but my study has just begun.
Hasta Luego...until we meet again.
