On the Road

4:30 am. About to leave for Santiago de Compostela with the students. Will be a full day on the road. Lots of coffee! Photo: a reconstruction of the room where Columbus met with the monks at La Rábida, as he waited to get funding for his first voyage. The original was destroyed in the famous Lisbon earthquake of 1755.  After Santiago we head for Lisbon, hopefully without earthquakes.
