    ... rest' on the edge of town which was well sheltered with a table and bench and all sorts of other if the day was fine but we ate some brekky dry! Sat and watched the rain fall down while we ate but it was cold - fingers barely working.

    ... We passed straight through Sarria which took over an hour, and had lunch near the outskirts at the top of the hill past the cathedral. We had learnt that once you've passed the cathedrals there is usually very little climbing ahead.
