La presencia durante quince siglos de los judíos en este país, su país, su Sefarad, se truncó en marzo de 1492 con una expulsión en la que todos perdimos algo. Su camino de exilio a lo largo y ancho del planeta tiene en este 2015 un punto de inflexión con la aprobación definitiva de una […]


Clases de Conversacion en la UAM

RAMIRO SARABIA- It’s crazy to think that, in less than a month, the Fall semester of my junior year will be over. More than that, I’ll have finished an experience that I once saw taking place in the distant future: studying abroad. As always, I’m back with reflections on my experience thus far in Madrid. […]


Mi fin de semana en Barcelona

As I’ve mentioned in my blog posts throughout the semester, every experience that I’ve had in Spain has been a learning experience one way or another. Whether it’s learning Spain’s complex religious history or realizing that American sports bars can serve as a small home away from home, my blog posts have served to help […]

With classes starting to pick up and deadlines approaching in several of them, I’ve started to realize how similar and different classes are […]


Essential Apps While Studying Abroad

Every night in Madrid is something different. Last night, a few students from the program and I decided to have a relaxed night at a pub in our neighborhood instead of going into the center of town and having a more “active” Saturday night out. It was there that we met a group of Americans […]


Madrid, The “Big City”

Almost a month into this experience, I feel like I’m slowly starting to get adjusted to the new lifestyle that Madrid has offered us this semester. Living in the heart of a city as active as Madrid is a drastic change of pace from the quiet, comfortable isolation that we often experience at Tufts. Whereas […]
