I'm baaaack!!! I am back this week after a wonderful 4.5 weeks traveling Spain. I was selected to participate in a National Endowment for the Humanities summer seminar for TEACHERS. (Yes teachers, these programs are for us! Peep out Summer 2011 offerings here.) My seminar covered Islamic Iberia which you may have guessed, meant travel to the beautiful region of Andalucia! I met lots of great teachers, learned tons about the Islamic influence in Spain, drank many a tinto de verano, and took lots of pictures. And I got a little tan too.
The wife of one of my colleagues at work gave me this book before I left, because part of it is set in the Alhambra, one of the sites I was going to visit.
What have you all been reading this summer?
