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! ...

A funny western Spanish bar - John Wayne movie in Spanish, the open fire burning and deer antlers mounted on the wall. Quirky, out of place, but funny all the same.
