... what a good value travel destination Portugal is. My
room cost me 25 Euros and was in a nice modern hotel. For dinner I had the
local specialty, Posta da Vitella (veal steak), as part of a three course meal
with wine for 15 Euros.
Except for the gorge cut by the Douro River and smaller
gorges of its tributaries, the central and eastern parts of Tras-Os-Montes

Holy **** - I bit into mine and it had chocolate ...

Come over the hill as we hit Zamora and there a distance in front of us is the old walled city where our digs for tonight will be. Love staying in the old cities, they are truly beautiful. But first...........there's a cafe! 10 minute stop.
Our stone bridge is 'new', built 1835-6. Remains of the old medieval one is in the river but clearly they didn't build like the Romans! Have some ...
