My fascination with Salamanca (III)
    2017-December-20  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

Among all the extra-curricular activities, quite a few of them were really exciting. The first one was city exploring in Salamanca. As we were finding answers to each question, we learnt more and more about this old town. Secondly, horseback riding was quite challenging. It was much cheaper than in China, whereas it provided us with an authentic horse-riding experience on our own. Moreover, visiting La Alberca was also one of the funniest days during the trip that I will never forget. At the ham museum, delicious “turron” nuts, satisfied our appetites. Last but not least, the Real Madrid Palace left a deep impression on me.

Spain is also well-known for its food. It lived up to its name. Indeed, it was really fabulous and impressive. We frequently bought a variety of drinks and snacks from the café near our school, sometimes a piece of pizza with a cup of milk, sometimes a mini sandwich with a cup of coffee. It was not too much, yet it allowed me to taste various styles of local food. Especially for me, it was really enjoyable when I was sitting in the square with my friend, having delicious seafood and fresh juice, with the wind caressing my face gently. I couldn’t tell what exactly made the time in Spain better, yet I was 100 percent sure that it was the kind of relaxation that I would never feel in Shenzhen.

Our schedule in Spain was quite busy, yet there was always some spare time left over. The night belonged to us; we could either go to have some coffee or stay at home doing homework. Usually during the nights, I was wandering throughout the town, dreaming about those old but wonderful times, thinking about what to taste next. I would only relax myself thoroughly here and I didn’t know why. Maybe because the sun set so late, or because the time passed by so slowly. I totally immersed myself in this attractive town, in only seven days.

One of the most important things I want to say as a conclusion is that the appearance of a country can be easily seen through sightseeing; its history can also be explored by either reading books or surfing the Internet, although it may take you some time.

However, you may never be able to feel the customs of it. Customs not only refer to the traditional clothes, food and way of living of a country; rather, it is the particular feeling that is triggered when you resonate with a country, which will become a country’s mark in your mind forever.

This is what Spain has left me: something secret, something ineffable, something that will never sink into oblivion.
