Today is my second day in Salamanca and I have to say that I already love this city!!! It is not too big but not too small either! It has a really beautiful old town with lots of old buildings and churches as well as places like la Plaza Mayor!
So far the weather has also been pretty good! Lots of sunshine! When I mentioned how great the weather is to my host mother, she looked at me in shock and said the weather is horrible! Normally, there are no clouds apparently but I don’t mind a few clouds as long as its warm! It is not hot but it is very nice!
In the morning, I had my first language classes in the language school and it was really interstig because there are only three of us: an american guy, an australian girl and me. So we get to speak a lot and learn a lot as well.
I really need to learn a lot! Living in a family showed me that I can only speak in the present tense which does not really help with communicating with other people. The family is lovely and does a lot for me to make me feel comfortable! Yesterday, I watched “Pretty Woman” with them – in Spanish. Thank god I watched that movie several times in English as well as in German before because this way, I knew exactly what was happening even though I did not understand much of what people were saying!
Overall, I really like Salamanca so far and I am looking forward to getting to know the city more. I want to see the inside of the enormous churches, I want to taste even more spanish food than I alrady did, I want to speak more Spanish, I want to see the museums, go out with the people from my school and just do what all the students do around here: Relax in a bar, in a café or in a park! Sooo much to do! But I still have almost 2 weeks to go so its looking good!
