Yesterday I attended the Seminar “Sociedad civil y relaciones transatlánticas,” organized by VIA Círculo Jefferson. It was a wonderful opportunity to meet such a fantastic group of people and chatting with them about our common experiences in US. I was especially impressed by the representatives of the US Embassy: Ms. Elaine Samson, Political Counselor and Laura M. Gould, Cultural Affairs Officer. Listening them I reminded how much I was missing the ethusiasm, accuracy and determination of some American professionals I met when I was enjoying my Fulbright fellowship. My years in US definitively shaped my vision about so many things of US and Spain that I can not stop recommending everyone having that experience.
