Last weekend we walked around Salamanca and took a trip to a nearby monastery.

Studying is going well but we’ll definitely need to keep studying if we want fluency.

This garden is one of my favorite places in Salamanca.

The walk to the university takes about 20 minutes. Here’s what caught my eye this morning.

This riveting image is next to our apartment.

The clothes for children are absolutely gorgeous but they don’t look easy to wear.

A pensive statue in front of a library.

There are newsstands at most large intersections. People seem to still be reading newspapers.

Second breakfast!
