Lens-Artists Challenge #36 – Around the Neighborhood

In university, I spent a semester studying abroad in Spain.  I fell in love with the university town of Salamanca, with its history, culture, and of course nightlife.

I stayed with a host mother in an apartment just a few minutes’ walk from the Plaza Mayor.  I walked with one of my other friends to our classes every day and came to love our little neighborhood.  There was a tobacconist shop, some bars, a salsa dance club, a butcher’s, and many other little shops.  In the winter, vendors sold roasted chestnuts on the street corners.

The local plaza was under construction while I was there; they made a lot of progress over a few months.

You can find more neighborhoods at the original Lens-Artist challenge.
