All over Spain, but especially in the south, courtyards filled with orange and palm trees are one of the strongest reminders of the influence of Moorish architecture. All rooms open onto the courtyard, making it the center of the house.
Thus with today and the next three days we bring the packet of postcards that my friend Mark gave me of Spanish images to a conclusion. I hope you've enjoyed them.

The small portrait of Marie Sklodowska from the time of her studies at the Sorbonne, 1892.
Marie Sklodowska would become arguably one of the most famous and honored scientists of the twentieth century, if not all time. The only individual, male or female, to receive two Nobel Prizes in the two different scientific disciplines, you may better know her as Marie Curie.

The Canadian Flag
The newly design flag was flown for the first time on February 15, 1965.
It is hard to imagine Canada having a flag other than the iconic red and white with a maple leaf in the center. It seems almost...wrong.
Happy Canada Day to all of my Canadian friends. Enjoy this video of Oh....Canada as well. It is mostly safe for work apart from maybe a couple of naughty words.
Oh, and this cute circa 2016 video by Canadian brewer Molson Canadian. a take on their famous "beer fridge video" series.
