7-November-2013 - Coimbro, Portugal to Salamanca, Spain by bus: We caught a bus at 10:15 and it took 6 hours to reach Salamanca. This is another very old town and has a university dating back to the 1300's. The Plaza Mayor (i.e. city square) is one of the nicest in Spain and we are staying at Pension Los Angeles located right on the square. After getting settled in we walked through the old town and scouted out the things we will see tomorrow, had dinner - tapas at several places.
