Still struggling to figure out the buttons in that home and getting a bit ratty about it. Going to Salamanca (world heritage site ) about 5 hours south from here tomorrow.

It rained a better part of the day. The first 100 m climb brought to the village of Buztinga. The next 160 m climb was to the village of Calverio de Maia.
