Today we went to Avila. The only city left that is fully enclosed with a city stone wall. We enjoyed eating the Avila famous dessert called yemas. It is a cooked dessert made from egg yolks and sugar covered with chocolate! Jakob, Jaxon, and Rhett tried to climb the tall wall and decided that it was indeed a secure city!

... side of the bridge? Huh? Good laugh anyway.
Crossed a number of Lari traps - the round pipe ones - fark, these ones freaking roll as you walk over them! Now that's playing dirty! Eventually see the village in the distance. Can almost smell coffee. Just some confusion between notes and markers meaning we stuck to trail and walked about 1.5km more than necessary but finish into town over a 14th century bridge. Check it out. Nowhere near the quality of ...
