Queen Sofia of Spain has attended the Spanish Geographical Society’s annual awards ceremony on Thursday at the Mutua Madrileña Auditorium in Madrid. The ceremony was also used to celebrate the Society’s twentieth anniversary.

The Queen – wearing a simple navy blue dress and blazer with a set of colourful jewels – helped present awards in the categories of photography, travel, research, communication and innovation, as well as the overall ‘Spanish Geographical Society Award’ in both national and international fields.

The Spanish Geographical Society’s purpose is to expand knowledge on geography, history and social aspects of Spain’s make-up, promote Spain’s role in “the discovery of the planet” and foster human contact and understanding.

    I have been trying for years to contact Vital Alzar, Spanish explorer (Pacifica) . Vital stayed with us in Dallas, Texas for a few days (1966) preparing for further travel to S. America and beyond. I have a colored 35ml slide of Vital and his companion, taken in our back yard, holding the canvas (titled, “Pacifica”) painted by Salvador Dali in New York to accompany the first raft trip to Australia.. If possible, please forward this to Vital as I believe he would be surprised to hear from me and may wish to have this picture. Regards, Robert E Holden
