Mark is very engaging speaker who presents a tremendous amount of historical and cultural information in a very organized and well-paced way still leaving time for questions
Mark did an outstanding job explaining the history & importance of Valencia for trading. The slides were superb to accompany his informative talk!! A real treat!!
This conversation provided an ideal mix of historical and cultural context that lay the groundwork for exploring Valencia when traveling is possible again. A lot of information with excellent graphics and photos.
I was interested in this talk to see how these things work. It was my first one with Context Conversation. Mark Planellas Witzsch is knowledgeable about Valencia and Spanish history. Of course you can't reduce it all to 90 minutes, but he managed to give a taste of the history as well as current industry and sites that people might want to see if they visit Valencia. I've spent extensive time in Spain since 1985 and had planned to be there last year but that trip was cancelled due to COVID. However other than working with a valenciano, Valencia was a black hole in my knowledge about the peninsula, and I'd never visited Valencia either. I knew that it was related to Cataluña but did not know why or the extent of it. At least now I feel I know something about it. Viewers were encouraged to ask questions at the end and could keep their cameras on or off, which made it particularly welcoming and interactive.
