Join us on Saturday, November 5 for a virtual lecture about the trade route that changed the world.
Known as El Tornaviaje, it was the ocean route that allowed the extraordinary trade between Asia and America to be born.
For years after the discovery of America, the Spanish traveled eastward from the New World across the Pacific Ocean; however, they could not find the route to return. In 1565 the interoceanic current was discovered that allowed the return trip, el viaje de retorno (aka tornaviaje). This event gave birth to the Manila Galleon trade between America and Asia that changed the history of world trade forever.
This event will be conducted in Spanish by Mexican historian Luz Elena. At the end of the presentation, there will be a section for questions and answers in English and Spanish.
Why: To practice Spanish, have a good time, learn about history, Hispanic culture and make new amigos
Who: All levels are welcome (the virtual lecture will be conducted mainly in Spanish with English for clarification)
Cost: Free for all!
