Mi Chiedevi: “Perché Non Parli?”

Tiny car making me feel like a giant. One more Spanish city, one more bullring. "Fighting" a megalithic bull in Ciudad Rodrigo. Hanging out (safely) on the edge of an old wall. Great view for a great picnic. He's on a horse. Everywhere you go as a tourist, street performers are there with you. I see 'em rolling. Waiting for the bull running to happen. Tortilla and rice pudding that I helped my host mother make for the IES buffet. The IES buffet and its hungry guests. The wonderful food at the buffet. MY host mother insisted (and was right) that I take a picture with historic Salamanca (AKA Old Sally) in the background. Flipping the tortilla, crucial step. Daniel paying attention to the tortilla master. Our best effort. In order, from viewer's L to R, Sergio, Daniel and Javier with an hornazo named after Daniel for his birthday. The boys playing ninja, having already eliminated me.

Pictures from my visit to Ciudad Rodrigo for the Carnaval del Toro and then some pictures from life with the family.

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>
