I'll be in Segovia from Friday 22 until Sunday 24th and share a room closed to Plaza Mayor with a friend and culture manager who travels every year specially from Germany to Segovia.
I know that Silvia booked a doble room at recommended Hotel Spa Casa Mudejar where I stayed last year. Silvia offers the second bed to somebody of our group (please get directly in contact with Silvia Mesa).
I have also still a very nice Price hotel booked, Hotel Plaza at Daoiz Protected content friday to Saturday for two people Protected content . I'll cancel that reservation today, Wednesday before midnight, unless somebody of you would be interested. Please note that Segovia is now quite totally booked and prices went up a lot!

Our already traditional "Internations Sefardí Lunch" at Hotel Casa Mudejar (closed to Plaza Mayor) on Saturday around 14.30 h will be organized only if there is enough interest of Internations friends - please let me know ASAP what your plans are!
Otherwise, I suggest to be free and let it open to decide when meeting with the group or part of the group to go for a coffee or for lunch somewhere, also a bit depending on the weather.
Before and afterwards, everybody can attend the conferences of individual interest.

If you don't have a car, it's very comfortable and even recommendable to go there by bus (from Moncloa Station) or by train (Chamartin station).

This article published yesterday with an interview given by the director of Hay Festival Segovia, María Cremaschi, is a proof of the fabulous success of this initiative promoting freedom of ideas and thought.
