About six years ago, in June of 2012, I watched "Forks over Knives," a documentary that advocates a whole-foods, plant-based lifestyle, with a friend. The next day, I gave everything in my apartment that wasn't vegan to my parents, and that was that. Danny was in Bangladesh for six weeks at the time, and each week when we Skyped, he asked if I was still eating vegan. I always said yes, and years later, it was still the case.
We visited Plasencia for only an afternoon and evening, but the time that we spent there was enough to make an impression. The modern, contemporary parts of town may look like most any other small town in Spain, and well, the old parts may too, but the historic area of town is really clean, charming, and cohesive and our Airbnb stay certainly didn't hurt in helping make our experience so positive too.
