my placard, and after talking with them, they signed the petitions for peace. I later met with my next host, Elena, who lives close to the cathedral. Elena is an architect who has worked for the Red Cross in Cabo Verde and Indonesia (to rebuild after the tsunami). She is a compassionate person who thinks only of helping people out. In the two days I spent as her guest, I was also fortunate to meet her friends, Begoña and Juan. Begoña works for Medicos del Mundo, and spends a lot of time abroad. Juan is a Mathematics teacher and conceptual photographer. They are all keenly interested in peacemaking, and my time in Alicante was well spent in their company.
