About Me

 I studied in Valladolid in 1970.  I was Dr Mendizabal's student secretary before we went to Valla.  Lived with a great family on Capuchinos Viejos off the Paseo de Zorrilla.  I taught Spanish in NJ for 7 years before raising my family. Last visit to Valla and my Spanish family was in 1997. Now my family lives near the Exposition Center on the other side of the Pisuerga.  Cindy Frishkorn Deik was one of my roommates.  We are still in touch.

Good to know. In a comment on your opening note which says about the bookstore. It was open in 1997 when we visited. I happen to own both a t-shirt and keychain from La Universidad de Valladolid.

I know what you mean - the person at the univ in valla wanted to make it May 20th when the IUP program concludes but that would make it impossible for most people who teach because what high school doesn't go until June? A lot of us aren't affected because we've either retired or switched careers but many would- Diane, one of the people who has gone to both reunions, teaches, for example.

On the other hand- last time we went in 2009, we did not find the heat unbearable. Maybe itdepends upon the year and we will get lucky again.

One of my roommates was from Susquehanna, a really nice person and we had a great time during our stay.

Great - please tell me the friend's name so that I can put it on our database. there are so many that have changes emails that I cannot contact now. Here's hoping a lot come. At the end of Sept, Barb Banks, Pam Kolega and I will be at IUP to talk with Dr. Peter Broad who just retired and took a few groups a couple of years ago. He wants to help, so we will discuss the activities that we might plan.

Hi Paula,
Nice to hear from you again. Do you think you'll be able to make the trip with us next year? We have people from 69 and 71, I think no one from 70, but I'm not sure.
