Last Saturday, the 17th, my husband and I headed out for a grand adventure, we were going on an overnight to Salamanca. Sure, I was a little sick, but that would not stop us.
We would be fine, after all I have worked with three years olds for a while now, and I seemed to be getting sick less. We were also ignoring the forecast for rain (finally) and below 0°C temperatures. We did have a good time (mostly) but as you can probably see, I am posting this over a week later. My Doctor did not allow me to work this week, and still wants to see me on Monday morning to make sure I am better, enough said.
So here we are a post, the first of many (I have a lot of pictures and mean to go back) about the wonderful Salamanca.
First we went to our local train station (not really but we live in the bario), and I saw this wonder shot of the four towers I just had to share.
I took several pictures of my new Jenkins Turkish "Jay" Spindle, and I got a lot of looks for it, unfortunately this was the best one. That is the dry scrubby area around Madrid and into Castle y Leon.
The first bar we saw was named after someone special to us, and it looks a bit like him too.
We stayed at the only five star hotel I have ever stayed at, and MAN it was nice, the picture below is a taste. If you ever go to Salamanca, I highly recommend that you look up this hotel, it was also a reasonable price, although we were probably there in the off peak season. A depressing note, we figured that this room and the bathroom was the same size as our entire apartment, AHH big city life.
