Much better than FC Barcelona. Now we are on the bus headed towards a place in Spain called ...

We don't want to do any more half days of driving, for both our sake and Walter's, so we decided to stop two thirds of the way to Segovia in a little town called Aranda del Duero, which we knew nothing about other than that it possessed a campsite.
