Jews in Spain from 1789 to 1902. New book in Spain

Yesterday, I had the pleaaure to attend the presentation of the last Book of Jacobo Israel Garzon. Jacobo has been President of Jewish Community of Madrid and Federation of Jewish Communities of Spain. Nowdays retired and playing as active historian of the Jewish steps in Spain, Jacobo writes with a simplicity and clearness that makes his history book very easy going for readers; at the same time he brings enormous historical rigor in his job that makes a learning experience during the reading.

I have just started a few pages yesterday but I am really anxiuous to dive on it; specially across a few appedinxes with a personal research job of Mr.Garzon going so deep into the History of the Jews in Spain.

The book is only available in Spanish.

 

Entre Dos Aguas: Boutique Hotel in Toledo

2019-10-07 13.44.53The Spanish music uses to come with a guitar, but this guitar is extremely enhanced when the hands of Master were playing it.

Yesterday I had the pleasure of visiting this specail boutique Hotel, called “Entre dos aguas” (“between two seas”), as the famous song of Master Paco de Lucia.

The hotel has been built up into a XV century house in Toledo that was recently the home of Paco de Lucia, and of course the placer where he recorded his famous album “cositas buenas” with the cooperation of famous atists like Alejandro Sanz, Tomatito or Diego El Cigala.

The decoration is super, as you can see in the photos and there are only 5 rooms available, so if you are thinking a about a singular overnight location, you must consider this one.
