More than halfway!

All the Fulbright Spain Scholars--English teaching assistants, graduate research scholars (that's me!),
and senior scholars--on the steps of the University of Zaragoza.
I'm in the second row, just behind the sign, between a girl in a yellow shirt and a man in a suit...

This last week I travelled to Zaragoza for the mid-year Spain Fulbright conference.  All the grantees from Spain met for a few days of discussions, presentations, and catching up.  It was a lot of fun to see how everyone's project is going and to discuss our experiences in Spain.

I only have a few months of the grant left, and I feel like I'm in panic mode.  There is so much left to learn and study and do! The grant technically ends mid-June, but I will be staying in Spain through July.  Even so, 11 months seems like nothing.  Mostly I have learned that flamenco is far more profound than I could have imagined, and I have barely begun to scratch the surface.

Zaragoza, a city founded and named after Caesar Augustus, was a delight! Here is the photo of the Basilica del Pilar beside the Río Ebro:



Now to catch up on some sleep after the conference and get ready for the Fulbright Berlin Conference for European Fulbright Scholars!
