I have been running out of puff in a big way. However let's see what ground we can cover relatively quickly.

Hoy, fuimos a la ciudad de Segovia. Vimos la gran catedral, cual era preciosa, con todas las habitaciones y las ventanas enormas de cristal coloreado.

this was a nice room and great bathroom. The shower was big enough for 2 :). the only downfall was that the WiFi was not in our rooms and we had to go down to the lobby each time to call home or send an email. Staff very helpful and coffee was wonderful.
