For the money, about 50eu, this place was perfect...no frills, no problems. They stored our bikes for us in the lobby. What more could ya need? Maybe the internet? It wasn't working.

Upon arriving, two more Car Bombs were placed in front of us so quickly that I was convinced for a second that my stealthy wife had phoned the order in on our way over (I wouldn't put ...

A day of rain and high winds. I do not even venture out!
Kathleen being a good Catholic, walks to church in the rain.

The rain has stopped, the sun is out. We decide to ride out on the scooter, perhaps as far as Fusceta, and visit Gordon and Kath (if they have ...
... to visit Gordon and Kath, on the motor scooter, but, the weather is too poor for a 50 mile round trip. Instead, we walk to Lidl to buy Pizza for this evening, and get thoroughly soaked in the process, when the drizzle turns to driving rain.
We manage a Skype call to Gary, Gabriel and Susana in Aberbyjan, and a call to Charlotte to wish her happy birthday.
Not even a photograph to show!
