Living on an island, off the tip of Africa

We are “out there”…. really out there in the middle of the sea. In the 1400’s, it was believed by some that the end of the earth was literally here, in the Canary Islands.

Tenerife is one of seven of the Canary Islands.
Santa Cruz de Tenerife is the Capital of Tenerife.
Tenerife is part of Spain, similar to the way Hawaii is part of the USA.
Austin, Texas to Santa Cruz de Tenerife is 4,788 Miles / 7,707 Kilometers.
The fast trip by air is 19 hours and 50 minutes.

The country of Spain has a governmental initiative to internationalize its education. The Universidad de La Laguna has embraced this initiative, which is why they have partnered with the Fulbright program in bringing professors and administrators from the USA. For those interested, ULL has opened a multidisciplinary Fulbright opportunity for the 2019-2020 academic year… click here.
