Last nights monastery stay was different. As I thought most rooms are only for two people. What I learned from a Finnish couple is that unless you're married you can't share a room. Can't stop laughing.......they must think that because my buddy and I are older we must be married. Let them think what they like - we get a room to ourselves, can spread our stuff everywhere, have no concerns about the safety of our gear (though not a major problem, though have heard of a few upsets), ...
... may be a girl but at least I know what freaking direction I am travelling. Had a really good giggle on this one. The girl isn't stupid!
A few hitos today and at one point while still in darkness there was a marker for the Camino and a marker for the Roman road. Hmmmm we thought briefly and decided to take the Camino. Didn't trust the Roman road as we got lost on it the other day or more to the point it disappeared into a field and there was nowhere to ...

... share of wars, fights and rebuilds in places but it still stands as a solid structure. Phew those guys knew how to build things. Today's engineers pale in comparison. At the end of the bridge is the fortress. Madly taking photos and discover we can have a look inside.
€12 gets us into six historic sites in the city. We'll play that game. We designated this a short walk and rest day. Well ...
... but tonight we are in a shared room with 7 others. It's Easter weekend and getting accommodation full stop is a mission. Many people are staying here for two days as they say they can't get accommodation even in hotels in Merída where we're headed.
I had a brain **** and checked airbnb. Yabbadabbadoo - I hit pay dirt and we have a room in someone's house - not done that before but will be fine for a night. Phew! ...
