seen a little tomb and a well in a place of worship dated between 2500 Bc -4500 BC , Even the Romans called the settlement ancient as it's been here so long.

Antique- the town name is Called antiquera

Now at hotel swimming pool , I've got it all to myself!

Are the inhabitants "Antiquarians"?  ;D

@ScarletBea:

https://qz.com/1069481/portugal-has-the-best-quality-of-life-in-the-world/

 ;D

Yeah, maybe...
But this comment: "work-life balance is greatly helped with the “kind people, nice weather and food, as well as the beautiful places to visit,”", my experience was not such a great work-life balance if we exclude all those nice things and actually think just about working hours ::)

I can actually say that here in the UK I also have the "kind people, nice weather (sometimes... ;D) and food, as well as the beautiful places to visit”, plus the good working hours!

@Saraband, do you agree? ;)

Very impressive. Immediately imagined Battle on the Bridge and bodies flying off into the gorge. That's what fantasy addiction does to your mind. Glad you are having good holiday Eclipse. 8)

Done Ronda sent Bea some photos on whtapp maybe she can post them on here. Now going for a sleep.

Sunday: Córdoba

Córdoba was founded by the romans, it became a port city used for shipping spanish olive,oil and wheat back to Ancient Rome.

Later on It became a capital of the moorish kingdom of El-Andalusia . Work began on the great mosque over seven centuries became one of the largest in all of Islam. When the city was reconquered by the christians in 1236 , the new rulers of the city were so awed by its beauty that they left it standing, building their cathedral in the midst of its rows of arches and columns, and creating the extraordinary church-mosque we see today.

Thanks @Eclipse, here are a few, then (my favourites of the 18 you sent ;D):

I was downtown at a bar, for a meetup with the Iceland humanistic society, arranged by the university...

(there was free beer, of course)

... and afterwards I encountered a woman who'd brought a four month-old puppy, A labrador/Icelandic mix, and she briefly let him off the leash. He was of course ecstatic at getting to run all around, checking out various scents and getting petted by everyone, but then got into a heated encounter with another dog. That is, his own reflection, which he was seeing for the first time. No matter how hard or long he tried, he couldn't touch, lick, bite or intimidate that stranger.

It made for really fun viewing.

@Eli_Freysson,

FYI, I enjoy exaggerating the amount of free beer you get between school events, humanistical societies, and what not.  ;D I will make you and Iceland famous around these parts.  ;)

Eclipse, keep having fun in Spain. And glad the rest of you seem to be doing alright.

I've been sick for the last week. It started out Sunday with a throat so sore I couldn't eat anything but Applesauce. Then it all went to my nose for the next two days. Then Wednesday I lost my voice.

Everything is mostly back to normal health wise. I have the remnants of a Hurricane headed my way. I stayed here to go to a long-needed doctor's appointment on Monday, only to realize this afternoon that we're now under a state of emergency. So I guess that appointment's canceled... Too late to go home though, so I'll wait it out. I'm not near the coast, so we'll get something ranging from a tropical storm to a category 1.

We have no classes Monday or Tuesday, partly because of the storm and partly because we're sheltering Floridians. Plenty of work to keep me busy though, so still not much time for reading Fantasy. I'm still only 50 pages into Age of Swords. :(

I don't know if you guys remember me talking about a student seminar I've been planning, but we managed to convince our state government to pay for all of the students' registration fees, banquet tickets, and hotel rooms for the whole weekend. We're expecting quite a turn-out, and I couldn't be more thrilled! It's apart of a larger convention, but I have 5 hours of topics to cover and we're packed!

Sorry for the long post. I realized earlier this week that I haven't made much of an effort to comment on other people's lives, or talk about my own. I used the excuse of thinking no one cared, but I think it was a way of keeping everyone at a distance. I shouldn't have done that. Hopefully I'll get better at this.

That's amazing, Justin, well done! Hope the seminar will be a blast. :)

And don't worry, we all switch in and out, comment or not (still hate that you can't like on tapatalk) and that's perfectly okay. Having twenty people comment on every free beer, spain pic or otherwise entertaining or thoughtful story or experience would be overkill. Most of the time I'm happy for them/you but don't feel the need to repeat something others already said. :)

@ultamentkiller, are you back from Minnesota? That's where you were in school IIRC.
Or am I having old age disease?
