Here's a sampling of photos from Erika's two-week trip to Spain.

She visited her Frosh/Soph roommate, Mandi, who was studying in Granada on a junior year abroad program. Erika spent most of her time in and around Granada visiting the Alhambra, the cathedral and the Science Park, climbing in the Alpujaras, and attending a neighborhood paella feast. She also visited Guarix - home of cave dwellings still in use, Cordoba - with the side by side Mosque and Cathedral, and Madrid - the Palace, the Cathedral, the Prada museum and the Crystal Palace .
