Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #49: Favorite Things

salamanca

The places I love most are the ones that feel like home.  Salamanca, Spain was home to me for a semester during my undergraduate studies.  This is the view of the beautiful Plaza Mayor from one of the cafés there.  We spent many hours there, drinking a caña or chocolate, studying, talking, and having our Spanish corrected (laughed at) by young waiters.  I hope to someday see this beautiful city again; just looking at this picture takes me back there.

      Love it!
      There were often musicians in the square, but they were not playing reels haha

    What a beautiful memory, Mei-Mei. I haven’t been to Salamanca yet, but I hear it’s beautiful. I’m glad you joined us this week!

    Hi Mei-Mei, this photograph of the Plaza reminds me of the public squares/plazas in the walled city parts of Gdansk when I visited a quarter of a century ago! (Yes, I’m that old!) Brings back a lot of memories. But I think the waiters in Spain were a bit harsh on you, at least you were trying to learn the language and integrate!

      Thank you for the defense 🙂 We were trying, although one of my friends once ordered lemon juice instead of lemonade! They were not really that bad; this is a very touristy area and I’m sure they have seen their share of annoying American college students 😀
