When we arrived in Salamanca in mid-December, our Daughter's host family told us that, while it does get cold in Salamanca, it never snows. It snowed every day for three days straight. It made for some interesting sights.
This is the "New" Cathedral. Construction on the new Cathedral began in 1513 and the residence are still discussing whether the "new" one is better than the "old" one.
We took a trip to Bethel, New York, to see the fields where the Woodstock Music and Arts Festival took place 40 years ago.
The area is wonderfully developed with the newly-built Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, comprising of two outdoor venues and gardens A large museum opened last year. Also there are weekend harvest festivals in September and October.
The fields themselves remain relatively untouched. One has free access to walk the natural bowl-shaped hill.
