    ... a browser. I woke just before eight--a benefit of the small private albergues is that they aren't as fussy on departure time. I wanted to get an early start but didn't hear my two roommates leave from the huge dormitory that we shared. I left at the same time as an American man, Dan.

    ... plazas where we bump into Mario & Johanna again. The imposing cathedral dates from the 15C reflecting the significant power-base associated with the emerging city at that time. The exterior is in the high gothic style typical of the Isabellan period.

For starts, the meal is backwards. First came the meat platter – various game and livestock (beef, pork, chicken etc.) and organs.
