from Lawrence, Pub Philosophy Group, Sunday meeting: The function of doubt in our life + NEWS (week 2)

Dear friends,

This Sunday we will continue discussing: the function of doubt in our
life. I was not able to confirm if there is going to be a football match
this Sunday as well. I'll try to find out by Sunday morning; if you want
to know what the situation is send me an email or sms.

However, thanks to some excellent initiative spirit by Miguel last
Sunday we were able to organise a discussion at the IBIS hotel opposite
the pub. This seems to be a good backup for the future; assuming they
will continue to have us. Jair, who runs the bar downstairs, was
thinking of opening the bar downstairs for us, but I still don't know if
he doing so this Sunday. It might be a good idea if we can support him
and make it worth his while.

In the meantime I have one new news item plus those from last week:

0) AMADA: would like to let you know that she organises a French
tertulia on Thursdays; she also gives classes in French for those who
are interested: Hello dear friend Lawrence: Thank you for your
greetings. It's very kind of you. My french tertulia : every thursday,
C/Melendez Valdés, 24 (metro Quevedo) 19h30 a 21h. Welcome everybody....
also give private classes of course. call me at: (I have Amada's
telephone number please let me know if you are interested: see note
below) . Thank you very much. Be happy.... regards. Marie-Aimée, french

1) ALFONSO has an exhibition of some of his painting at the Sala De
Exposiciones del Distrito de Retiro, Avda. Ciudad de Barcelona, 162. The
metro station is probably the closest according the Madrid Yellow Pages
street plan. The exhibition is open until the 14 March and is open
Monday – Friday from 10.30 – 14.00 and 16.30 – 20.00. I have put a scan
of the leaflet at the Philomadrid photos album:

2) MONICA and SONIA are going to do the CAMINO DE SANTIAGO and would be
happy to go with people from the group. These are the details: El Camino
de Santiago en Semana Santa:

We´ll begin in Astorga on 20th March. It should take us 11 day to arrive
to Santiago. (270 km). We´ll sleep in Albergues of Pilgrims where we
will be able to cook or to have a menu del dia in a Restaurant. I can
explain more details for those who are interested. (Monica is an expert
in the Camino; Lawrence) You can contact Monica at
monicapelegrin11@hotmail.com or usually Sunday at the meeting.

New Meeting Place for Saturday Tertulia (Olga and Puri Saturday
Tertulia).We've changed place again as we didn't have a choice .Our
Saturday Tertulia, at 22:00 hrs, will be held from now on,in O'Neill's
c/Príncipe 12, Ground floor, at the back, Metro Sevilla and Sol.

Sorry for the inconvenience this may have caused you all. Looking
forward to seeing you. Olga and Puri.

4) From: YASEER...who is looking for accommodation for a few months:
Dear Isabel

I hope you will be fine and doing well. I am coming to Madrid for my
thesis exam. I am looking for place to live for few months. Can you help
me? I am asking other people also.

I will be grateful.

Finally, note about telephone, as you know my emails are also posted on
the blog and the yahoo.group but because they are in the public domain I
was thinking of not including telephone numbers in my emails for
security reasons.

Take care and see you Sunday,
