A highlight for Steve on his morning wander for bread for breakfast. He saw a dog carrying a lady's baguette home in its mouth AND it stopped for a pee on a wall en route (baguette still in mouth). Wadestown dog owners - lets hope you don't get any ideas!!! Although Stella could probably carry a Grande Baguette.
Valencia is an amazing, modern city and realising we hadn't finished doing everything we wanted ...
... s giant monastery-palace, built in the 16th century and one of Spain's most famous buildings. And I've passed it by without being aware of it - should have done my homework, shouldn't I?

I didn't think much of it at all...It was extremely touristy and every other shop "specialized" in selling swords. It is known as a steel city of the 1400-1600's but today it is just a small tourist trap. The cathedral there is nice, but the catedral nuevo in Salamanca is much nicer. The Monestario in Toledo is not as nice as San Esteban here ...
