... with twisting roads on many levels. We get lost and Mrs. Merkel seems to have no idea where she is. We spend ages going round and round, get a fleeting view of the bridge in the distance and eventually get back on to the main road. We are staying at the Vidago Palace Hotel. The porter offers to clean our car for us. Its just what's needed, and its free. It is a huge building.

At least we have clean undies and socks!
We left town this morning and the temperature was 11 degrees and continued to drop the more we ...
Surprisingly, there were only five people in our dormitory last night. What a treat as we each had lower bunks and space to prepare to leave this morning.
Just to finish off last night, we decided not to have the pilgrim's menu and went to a little cafe only 50 metres up from our albergue that was recommended. Warren had the hamburger with the works while Richard and I had the chicken with chips and salad. Other than Warren, we had trouble finishing ...
