U3A Asociacion International COSTA DEL SOL - FUENGIROLA 30 km. from Malaga ( Andalucia -Spain) My name is Carmella Dight. I am the founder and President of this branch since 1998.
2. There are 280 members from 27 different nationalities . The common language is English. Annual fee 24 Euro p.a.
3. We offer 30 +
courses, ranging from Art, Music, Drama, History, Politics, Mind, Body,
Sprit, Games/Leisure, Languages, Geology, Philosophy, Current Affairs;
We have 6 "Monthly Lectures" mainly by outside speakers on
general topics. Most of the lectures are illustrated with slides. Because
of our transient population many course are of 8 - 12 weeks duration
. Some are even shorter. We offer 3 to 4 trips a year in Spain. One
trip is normally of 2 to 3 nights away. We feel that because many of
our members are alone (widows/ers, divorcees, never been married etc.)
travelling with like minded people enables them to see some places of
interest and share the experience. Last year we ventured out of Spain
- 2 groups travelled to Russia: 10 people who studied Russian literature
travelled to Moscow, Tula Pskov and St. Petersburg on a literary tour
(in search of the Russian soul) the other group consisting of 40 people
visited Moscow and then sailed up the river Volga to St. Petersburg.
4. Sharing interests, intellectual stimulation and meeting people from diverse nationalities.
