|The Feliz Navidad sign always makes the |
Plaza Mayor look like a postcard.
This year, there doesn't seem to be much holiday cheer. So here are some photos of the cheeriest things in my city and a video of one very enthusiastic author talking about the thing she loves most (my book launch party).
|It's not the holidays without certain treats. My favorite variety tray of |
the "most expensive turrón in the world." It's not that pricey.
|I found a Yule Log! I used to find these at Italian bakeries |
in the United States, though the word "yule" suggests
a Celtic origin... This Spanish version is so good.
|The fine folks at Kindle Press are gifting you a trip to magical |
Providence, RI, for only 99 cents this December!
|The street lighting this year is even more subtle than usual.|
|But with the native beauty of Modernist and |
Romanesque architecture, you don't need to add much.
|Afternoon strolls down the shopping street.|
|The old town hall.|
|Down Balborraz Street, one of the oldest |
and most beautiful streets in Zamora.
|The "umbrella" in the Plaza Mayor with the sign |
so you don't forget where you are!
|My city has "love" in it!|
|I wrote this book to curl up with and get lost in.|
|Heading toward the oldest part of the city.|
|The theatre, for plays and events. |
(People from elsewhere often ask me if it's a movie theatre,
which seems to be the fate of many old theatres.)
|On the side of the Parador.|
|The store with the weird costumes for parades has a tree!|
|The Renaissance convent and a Modernist balcony.|
|The palace from the time of Ferdinand and Isabella|
