This past Sunday a group of us took advantage of one of the Cursos Excursions to the city of Avila and the Escorial, a historical royal residence just outside of Madrid. It was a long 12 hour day, but I think everyone really enjoyed doing a little bit of sight seeing - especially since we have been learning about the art and architecture there in our Art History class.
The most interesting part of the Escorial was being able to see all of the tombs of past Spanish Royalty. Everything was made of either marble or gold, it was a shame that we couldn't take picutres inside!
It's hard to believe that we have less than 2 weeks left in Salamanca!
