Salamanca at Night

The best way to say good-bye to Salamanca (if one must) is to walk around the city at night.  In the summer, it was warm, and the streets are filled with families out for a stroll, and the buildings are simply marvelous.  The stone from which most of Salamanca’s historic buildings are chiseled have a yellow hue, and the city officials have recently made the excellent decision of replacing the white lights used to illuminate the buildings at night, with amber ones. The buildings are beautifully lit, and the amber is gives the city a unity, and the buildings look as if they were built from gold.
