"Arriving in this famous town, which takes you back to those times when Castilian was spoken first. The beauty that surrounds you and those pathways of a narrow street which are around you. From every corner that you go, more art around the buildings are found, and a piece of history buried under each shelter. A town which looks like from a book, the locals who converse with the new faces that appear, the night that breaks the silence of that tranquil day, to have ...
... tap on the shoulder, we didn't know what he was saying so our only response was simply "gracias". We feel really dumb, and nobody that speaks English is around to help us out. I think we are in dire need of some Spanish lessons.
We've finally figured out how to get to the Plaza and find our way back.
(Louisa:) The city is difficult to navigate through because all of the streets intersect so ...
Hola! I am so sad to write that this is my last day in Salamanca! What a wonderful three weeks I have experienced. This town is beautiful, filled with gorgeous sites, nooks and crannies that was worth every minute and every penny. Yesterday after our Sevillian class, during which we finally got to see our teacher go all out with her partner and dance like a true sevillian, which was awesome!...We had a cooking class at the exhibition kitchen ...
There's been some action in Valladolid/Spain over the past few weeks, and more events are coming up soon:
1. Miguel Delibes dies at age 89: Delibes was an esteemed author of Spain, known for his writings on cities/naturaleza, among other things.

... eating my breakfast and then for them it was off for a very long siesta and for me (after sorting an error in the bill) a very long day in the saddle. I hit the road before 8 am and made good progress before feeling a few spits of rain. I put on my waterproof jacket and as fate would have it just a few kilometres later the sun broke through and once again I found myself being cooked.

One of the great hotels I've stayed :) Location is perfect; you can walk everywhere; Plaza Mayor and all the major churches and monuments are just a few minutes away; you get good food around the cafes and restaurants... The ladies at thereception are very friendly and helpful and speak good English... So what else do you want to have? ;) Maybe one small critism : in the information e-mail sent it mentions the hotel parking but it's not said anywhere that you have to make a reservation for that. So if you're arriving with your car, take that e-mail serious and don't forget to make a parking reservation.
