  Student life

Some of the students drape themselves in long black capes, a tradition that goes back about 400 years. They also make cuts in the hem according to the number of times they have been disappointed in love. This young student had a lot of cuts in his cape! He was also trying to show me a number of coloured ribbons (an other tradition) to recognize to which faculty he belongs.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
