Salamanca, Spain - 2011
Educational Purpose: I went to Spain with the mission of discovering what the country, the people, and the language are like. But what unfolded was a series of unforgettable experiences that opened my mind to thinking, living, and co-creating in new ways. My Spanish was fluent enough that I didn't have problems communicating through language, but there were some cultural differences that prompted me to examine my own assumptions. What you will miss from the pictures are the distinct smells and textures that defined my experience during this beautiful--though occasionally rainy--spring season in Salamanca.
