After waking at 7am to a thunderstorm, with heavy rain, we have had a long days travelling, over 280 miles, coming through mountain ranges and torrential rain, on occasions. I'm afraid to say we did break into song...."The rain in Spain......" and thank goodness it did!!!! The last 30 miles the temperature climbed from 19-29.5 degrees.....back to normal!!!

We are at a site on the river Tormes, quiet and only 3k outside Salamanca, such a pleasant relief from the madness of the last site.....Graham likes the fact that it is called Don Quixote!! If I were a cyclist and, if we'd brought bikes, we could cycle along the riverside, into Salamanca-those who know me will realise what a silly comment that is, as I would probably end up IN the river!! Far safer to get the bus, or use the car!!!!!

Now stocked up on rose and vino tinto, temperature 26 degrees at 9pm and life is good. Hoping for a few easy days.
