Today I took the bus at 10 a.m. to La Alberca, a gordous little village in the south-west of Salamanca at a hight of 1.050 m. Again the sun came out immediately we have left Salamanca. The village is famous for its frame houses as well as the stone houses.
along the camino de las raices
After my visit of the museum I hiked a nice 8km trail (Camino de las raices) through chestnut oak trees which were formerly used for house constructions. There was no cloud in the sky and it was extremely silent.
After a typical meal of codfish and red pepper the bus picked me up at 6 p.m.
Another wonderful day. Read More
After a hard week in my Spanish school, this morning I took the bus to Ávila, a World Cultural Heritage. The 2.5 km wall around the centre is impressive and within the wall one of the cathedrals (Cathedral de Ávila) was built in. It is a beautiful little town in the north-west of Madrid (110 km) at a height of 1.130 m.
In contrast to Salamanca the weather was fantastic: no fog, no cloud and really warm. So I could sit outside for lunch in a nice little restaurant called “La Escalera”. In the cathedral there are so many things to see. It is worthwhile to spend € 5,- for the entrance. The bus back to Salamanca was at 7.15 p.m. and arrived at 8.45 p.m. What a wonderful day!˝ Read More
