We are loving Astorga!
Such a pretty town
and we are staying at The Hotel Spa Ciudad de Astorga.
We spend a lot of time taking photos of our food! Here are some pics of our lunch at - oh! I can't remember the name! I'll post it later. Barbara will know! She has become our chief navigator and is the person I ask when I need directions. That girl always has a map on her hands! Above is Barbara in front of the Gaudi Palace. Looks like Cinderella's castle.
A hot garbanzo salad.
Mushroom soup with shrimp.
Big juicy hake steak
Bacalau (salt cod)
This blog is becoming a food blog!
After lunch we went shopping. I had to buy an umbrella. I left mine in Logrono. Also, my wool undershirt bit the dust so I replaced it with a bamboo one. Bamboo! Sounds so bizarre. But it is soft and warm and the man promised it would last longer than the smartwool.
We found Chantal the perfect backpack!
And I made a date with Merlin. I , after all, husband hunting! He promise to help me out!
We stayed in the square to watch the clock strike. Turned out to be a non-event and nothing to write home about. I though those figures were going to chase each other around, not just strike the bell. Oh well. Now I can say I saw it. :)
Last stop was the supermarket for picnic supplies. Tomorrow we walk to Rananal del Camino.
