We marched to the courtyard for recess in two silent columns, until a bell signaled permission to shout and run. Those were the rules~constantsurveillance, no "dangerous" contact, total s i l e n c e i n study hall, in the chapel, even in the dining room. Firmly grounded in these rigorously enforced principles, our educations proceeded apace. Religion had the lead role; we studied apologetics, the catechism, the lives of the saints.

People walked great distances to get from one place to another; everyone knew everyone else; all sorts of encounters were possible. I remember arriving one evening at the Cafe Castilla with a friend and seeing screens set up which divided the room in half. A waiter told us that Primo de Rivera and company were expected for dinner! He did in fact arrive, and the first thing he did was to order the screens removed. When he saw us, he shouted, "Hola, j k e s ! " The dictator was buying the leftists drinks!

The room is long and lined with tall granite columns; and except on weekends, when the place trembles with tourists and noisy children, it's usually half empty.
