Torre de San Gil Abad
These are all some towers we saw on a recent Art History class excursion. They are all in the “mudéjar” style, which means they were built by Arabic craftsmen under Cristian rule in the 11th, 12th, and 13th century, roughly.

Switching cultures, on Thursday I did a one-day exchange at a trilingual school here in Zaragoza: classes are almost all taught in French, with Spanish (literature) in Spanish and English (language) in English. The girl who hosted me was wonderful, and the classes were interesting – three were in French, so I hardly understood anything. More on this later!
