... br> Unusually hot today. Heat wave throughout Europe this week. Thank goodness room has air con.

End result a contemplative sit on a high wall overlooking the valley. Not all bad. Ps Pat missed out on the beer as they seemed to close for there late midday break just as he walked ...
Lots of *vuelta* -- returns (or loops) --
First, we managed to find our way to a turn on La Vuelta, the Spanish bike tour, equivalent to the Tour de France, in Mora de Rubielos. (Don't be fooled, there's also a town called Rubielos de Mora a few kilometers away.) We arrived about 30 minutes before the action. A small crowd had already gathered. Soon the advance cars, police, and helicopters arrived. And then the bikers! They certainly don't care where you are ...
