Parador de Zamora. Got the last room. Lovely large comfortable room with classic Spanish interior. Huge bathroom. Dark and shuttered and quiet. Even though there was a wedding in the main courtyard we heard nothing. Are diner in dining room. VG.
€100 incl bfast.

... an extension of the Meseta of
Spain and less heavily forested than the hills country I was in over the
previous day and a half in the province. The area around Miranda is said to

He must have hit one because he is stopped at the top of a hill causing a traffic jam - not smart but then we realise they don't have the big bull bars we do - he's probably stowed the front in. Tough expensive day for him.
By the time we get close there is an emergency vehicle there and ...
... it out as this is the roman road, yet they call things here Romanesque and can't seem to figure what is roman and what is medieval.
Find the digs but can check in until 2:30. Today is the municipal Albergue and they have a big kitchen so we are defo staying there because we will defo find some food to cook including real veges! Manage to get them to take our packs so we can explore the city for the next few hours without the extra load.
