Después: La Alberca

I'm cleaning up after the end of a long week and will be back soon with tales of La Alberca and the eery silence of inland Spain during the month of August.

While I head out to enjoy an unusually cool night in Salamanca, I'll leave you with a photo. We had the pleasure to watch a traditional wedding in La Alberca a few weekends ago, from Friday's midnight alborada serenading the bride and groom to the ceremony and plaza dancing on Saturday. After mulling and dancing a while in the the plaza outside the village church, the bridal party marched off to dinner. Within moments, this woman had erased every trace of the day's messy festivities.

    I love this part in a Spanish wedding!
