Studying Spain

The new academic year is upon us, and I am working on how we might study Spain this year. We are going to start a "Book of Centuries". I want to look at various versions of two of literatures favorite characters, Don Quixote and Sancho Panza. I have a mini collection of Don Quixote books. I lived in Madrid for 5 months during my junior year in college. I loved it so much that I returned to Spain with my best friend from my childhood, Molly. We lived again in Madrid for a year after we had both graduated from college in 1989. I love all the versions of paella and the Spanish rice dish arroz con pollo. Tonight we are going to watch a documentary on St. Ignatius of Loyola. St. Ignatius, pray for us!
