Today, we went to a town called “Alberca” and a mountain called “La peña de Francia”. The mountain is almost 2000 meters above sea level and has a beautiful view of all the land around the Sierra de Francia. The drive up was pretty scary but the view was totally worth it. You could see all the towns in the area including Alberca which we later visited. Alberca is a small town with a different style of buildings than other cities and towns we have visited. There we explored the town and tried new foods. It was a very fun day and we can’t wait to explore more cities and towns in Spain.

Question 1: Where did you grow up?
I was born in Salamanca. A long time ago. I grew up in the Canary Islands. Do you know the Canary Islands? (Visual description of Islands). The Canary Islands include: Gran Canaria, Capital Las Palmas, y Santa Cruz de Tenerife. My dad grew up in Las Palmas. I was born here (Salamanca), but I grew up for 10 years there, in Las Palmas. They are beautiful islands, and for your next trip you should go there.
Question 2: What is your favorite thing about or in Salamanca?
The other day I told you that there is a river you had seen and had passed. By the river, I really like to walk along the river. Next to the river, there is a park where everyone walks. It is very beautiful. The people of Salamanca spend a lot of time there.
