I had such an amazing time in Valladolid last year. Now I am living just an hour and a half away in the city of Salamanca. 

Salamanca is known for its university students and the way they like to fiesta. But I personally know Salamanca for another reason, the Plaza Mayor. 

Translated to main square in English, every major city in Spain has a plaza mayor and they are all different. It has no real purpose other than being the center of the city (where City Hall is located) and a beautiful place to sit and have a café con leche.  Salamanca's plaza mayor dates back to the 1700s. 

I've visited here many times before and taken countless photos in this Plaza Mayor, and now I will call it my own. It's funny how your path can lead you right where you are supposed to be sometimes...

This year I have new students, new colleagues, new roommates, and lots of new experiences awaiting me in Salamanca. 

I also have a new Plaza Mayor to call my own!
