Thanks again, Mercedes, for a great lesson summary. I'm going to copy all the past lesson summaries onto our blog so we have them all in one place.
In the meantime, here are a couple of images to remind you of what we talked about last week.
This is a view from the rooftop terrace at Torre Tavira. We talked about the camera obscura and all the watch towers - 126 I think we said there were - where merchants (or more likely their servants) stood and watched their ships come in.
And here's a link to the trailer we failed to watch for the new Danny Boyle film, 127 hours. I emailed the link last week. Maybe you've already watched it. If not, why not watch it now?
I loved his last film, Slumdog Millionaire, but I'm not sure about this one.
So, do you think you'd you like to see the film? I'm not convinced I would. A bit too dramatic for my tastes, but it's a great story!
