This joyous feeling was really surprising for me because I had never imagined that a teacher’s profile/memory would make me so happy. A kind of happiness that we would experience when we meet a very special friend after a long time; a friend with whom we have spent a lot of time, with whom we have done lots of fun together and share a lot of memories…

Danny's challenge. Expulsion of Non Christians in Spain.

When I was a child, history was not my strong point and never had high marks, however in my adulthood it's becoming so interesting. Curious, right? :D at least never is too late to learn.

This time was turbulent and so rough here and I think that laws which were settled in this year paved the way to the future… Continue
