The first week of classes is finished but the homework is not. The professors are wonderful and understand that some of us still need the Spanish spoken clearly and slowly. This weekend I will go to Valencia de Alcánteres a small pueblo not far from Cáceres where Téresa (my mom here in Spain) grew up. She says that we will stay in the old house (that could mean centuries old, I don´t know) on her family´s farm. I am excited to see the orange trees and olive trees and the cold cellar.
TorreOne of the towers of the fortification walls around Old Cáceres. The towers have been rebuilt over centuries so each is distinct and many are centuries older than otheres.
Plaza mayorThe old plaza mayor of Cáceres. But certainly not the oldest. This is outside the Old City´s walls and there are numerous small squares inside the Old City from as early as the 13th century. This plaza is much younger...maybe 300 years old...no sé
San JorgeStatue of Saint George killing the dragon in the very old Plaza de San Jorge, in the heart of Old Cáceres.
