We visited a few old cities on the way to Caceres so a bit of wandering. Some ruins, some intact all interesting in their own ways. Caceres is a unesco heritage site and has been owned by many forces along the way. Like many old cities though it lacked a bit of greenery.
There have been constant little figures of the kkk style inquisitors so when we had a full size model,pictures were important! Storks are persisting though nests ...
... plaza - totally not what we expected. What a surprise!
Before us was this huge plaza with a single fountain in the middle (it didn't work) a few cafes lining the perimeter, and very few people sitting around. It was like going back in time or coming onto the set of an empty old spaghetti western. It was weird, yet kind of wonderful.

Get off the bitumen all the way to Riolobos. Now this is the new diversion from the original VDLP because some farmer decided despite government pressure to not allow us onto his ...
... side of the bridge? Huh? Good laugh anyway.
Crossed a number of Lari traps - the round pipe ones - fark, these ones freaking roll as you walk over them! Now that's playing dirty! Eventually see the village in the distance. Can almost smell coffee. Just some confusion between notes and markers meaning we stuck to trail and walked about 1.5km more than necessary but finish into town over a 14th century bridge. Check it out. Nowhere near the quality of ...
