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

A long turn to the left - a farmer ploughing his field with storks either waiting for him to pass or flying in behind to get an easy feed - followed by another to the right and we enter town to walk all the freaking way to the other end to find an open bar. Ahhhhh coffee at last! Then food ...
... 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.
