Photo with a nurse bull after watching a tiring footie game. Picture of a sculpture of a car chassis that reminded me of my father (he's a mechanic). Little collage with some of the cool bikes around Salamanca and a picture of a horse, because it's Spain. The park I walk by everyday with its ducks. Final score after the Zamora keeper smartly acts out his injury. Zamora on the counterattack. Main square decorated for Holy Week. A picture of the newer Law Department building where I have classes. My favourite piece of urban design in Salamanca, cylindrical bricks! The phenomenon of "lovelocks" has spread to Salamanca, too. View of a more modern part of Salamanca from my class window. The Anaya square and palace where the Philology Department is situated/where I go to class! Another great piece of urban design found in a few Spanish cities, the "stramp"- a stair and ramp blend for all people. This just struck me as funny, seeing the arbitrary nature of this political graffiti. A view of old Salamanca from my host mother's childhood house. Another example of how Spanish people love manipulating trees. Sunrise view from my window.

These are just some pictures of things I found interesting or eye-catching around Salamanca. Unlike many of my albums the pictures where taken over a period of time, anytime I had my camera with me and thought I’d like to share something with people that haven’t been or studied here in Salamanca.

My one true love is my team: Juventus and while most days I&#39;m a completely rational being, there&#39;s a 2-hour window during the weekend where I am lost in the joy of fandom. I also play intramural soccer, with semi-finals being the best result so far (fingers-crossed for finals next year!!!!). Always a fan of arguing, I can also be spotted challenging people&#39;s beliefs or stances on a daily basis to spark interesting conversations. Never an avid reader, but more of a picky one, my favourite genre is historical fiction, preferably pre-medieval. Another hobby is singing which I do aloofly around people, so much so that I ended up singing for the Gospel Choir at Gettysburg College, though not being a believer.</span></p>
