  5. 5. Breve visión de Valladolid• Valladolid, la ciudad del río Pisuerga, conserva en su casco antiguo un interesante conjunto renacentista compuesto por casas, palacios, iglesias y uno de sus edificios más emblemáticos, su Catedral.• La capital castellano-leonesa goza de una intensa vida cultural gracias a su condición de sede universitaria, así como a eventos tales como la Seminci, la Semana Internacional de Cine, cita imprescindible del calendario cinematográfico español.• Otro evento que marca la vida de Valladolid y despierta el fervor de sus habitantes es la Semana Santa. Declarada de Interés Turístico Internacional, sus procesiones suponen un auténtico desfile de obras de arte sacro.• Valladolid comenzó a cobrar protagonismo a partir del s. XI, cuando el conde Ansúrez pasó a gobernar la villa en nombre de Alfonso VI. Su máximo apogeo lo alcanzaría durante el reinado de los Reyes Católicos (s. XV), época en que la universidad vallisoletana se convirtió en una de las más importantes del país. Pero, además de protagonizar episodios clave de la historia de España, Valladolid ha sido su capital en dos ocasiones, la primera con Carlos I (s. XVI) y posteriormente con la llegada al trono de Felipe III (s. XVII).• En la gastronomía vallisoletana tienen fama los asados de cordero y cochinillo. También son característicos la sopa castellana (elaborada con pan, ajo y jamón), el bacalao al ajoarriero y los platos de caza. Para acompañar a estas recetas, nada mejor que los vinos con Denominación de Origen que se dan en la provincia: Ribera del Duero, Cigales, Rueda y Toro.

  11. 11. One Logger’s personal account • I can truly say that my five weeks in Spain have been the best time of my life. It is posible that I have had as much fun before or taken interesting classes before as well, but never before had I enjoyed such a sustained period of fun and learning. Once our teacher played a song for us, “Wedding Nights” in which the singer wishes that all his nights were as beautiful as a wedding night. I think that my trip was exactly like that wish. I was never bored. Nearly every day and night was fun and exciting and I was always learning more about culture, language, and the place itself. I am sure that I will return in the future. • - Max Cohen
