Exploring SalamancaSalamanca, Spring 2012

This first week here has been a whirlwind of IES Orientation programs, tours, meetings, and intensive grammar classes. At first it was a bit overwhelming, but thanks to all these events I am quickly adapting to the Spanish lifestyle and learning to navigate my way around the city. What seemed like a gigantic maze only a week ago now feels like a city I can call my home for the next four months. When my housemate Melissa and I first arrived in Salamanca, our Señora gave us an informal tour of the city. We saw many of the famous historic buildings in the city as well as the University of Salamanca, the river Rio Tormes that runs next to the town, and the clothing store Zara that is one of the most elaborate that I’ve seen! We also had a group scavenger hunt, a University tour, and a historical tour through IES, which all were very informative. However, I have found that just going out and exploring has been the most enjoyable and effective way for me to learn my way around. Here are some of my favorite sights and buildings!
