Hola a todos!
This morning was absolutely beautiful here in Salamanca! After a group breakfast in the hotel, we walked around the plaza and stores to get a few souvenirs before departing into Madrid. Then, we met up with Cody, a leader of a youth group called En Vivo. Through this group, they welcome college students and young adults to join a Christ-oriented community while also feeling welcome even if they have doubt in God. We helped set up chairs and tables for them to have a community dinner and learn more about Cody and the organization itself. We visited the coffee shop church that partners with En Vivo. Here students and young adults are welcome to come in on every other Sunday for church in a more open environment with free coffee, food, and community.
We said our goodbyes to Cody and headed out for lunch followed by a tour of the Salamanca Cathedrals. They were absolutely beautiful and we even go to climb to the top of it where the bells were! We continued to explore Salamanca until dinner time where we ate the national dish of Spain, Paella with shrimp and chicken. During dinner, we visited with Santiago and the other youth. We played multiple games of hangman and tic tac toe! For our last night in Salamanca, we visited another gelato shop for one last sweet treat in the city!
