Bienvenidos de Salamanca
As we walked up to the stadium, the energy from the crowd made it feel more like a baseball game than a bullfight, but once the horses and matadors arrived, we knew exactly what we were in for. Experiencing a bullfight is a bit like listening to a foreign language for the first time: you don’t quite understand what’s going on, but you can feed off of the energy and enjoy it just the same.
The bullfight isn’t the only event the Salamanca Feb Frosh have seen--Salamanca is buzzing with concerts in the plaza and fairs around the city. It’s hard to believe it’s only been a few weeks, but there is no doubt in anyone’s mind that this city is the perfect place to start off our Colby experience.
