Seduto Sotto un Platano

One of the few museums found in Zamora is that of Semana Santa, and this is the entrance to it. Kathryn and I playing a game of camera showdown. The door to the legendary El Cid's house, who lived in Zamora for some time. Inside Zamora's seldom-frequented castle, which I thought was a delight to visit and very tourist-friendly. White storks that come to visit Salamanca from across the Mediterranean find a warm, cozy home ready for them atop many historical buildings. A little taste of the products that were for sale at the winery we visited. A view of Toro, the little town we visited. Bo helps me out with my interpretation of the art exhibit. Behind me are a number of clocks, I say that to explain the bad humour in me checking my watch. I sneaked under these  chains to get a picture hopefully few have gotten of/with this piece from a  Cuban artist. This passes for a fruit market in Spain, pityful! -(read with sarcasm)

The pictures here are mostly from two separate occasions. One is the group visit to Tor and Zamora, two lovely towns close by. The other occasion is our visit to the Da2 contemporary museum. Both trips were fun and enjoyable, and the food in Toro/Zamora was delicious.

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>
