We have really enjoyed our stay in Andorra La Vella and this morning we walked into town for the last time. Today rain is threatened by mid afternoon, so we have taken advantage of this and have put the washing in so it will be completed on our return. First we went into a shop that sells bike racks, no one spoke English but we worked out measurements and pointed to heads to show we'd ...
Decided to walk into the old town this morning and took Tess with us. She's getting used to walking on a lead now with lots of people, still not sure about traffic and bridges, but she walks to heel and just needs a little reassurance every so often.

... relaxing day with James in Massat where we had some lunch and a beer in Le Globe, where the owner Jean-Pierre looked after JP's vegetarian wishes. Then we visited another cafe called Le Maxil. Very trendy place the owner who has worked in the states loves to speak English. It was a great Bar and really quite modern place - especially for Massat!!! Then the highlight of the day was bumping into some other bikers from holland and Germany who have given me yet another destination to head ...
