ANOTHER DAY. . . .

Back into Segovia this morning to visit the Alcazar, the cathedral and the Jewish education centre. TheBack into Segovia this morning to visit the Alcazar, the cathedral and the Jewish education centre. The numbers on the streets are about one tenth of the previous evening. 

On entering the last of these, I'm surprised to see an array of leaflets on that famous Jewish personage, St. Teresa of Avila. Talk about ecumenical. 

The vast underground car park near the aqueduct labels its spaces with a number and a 3 letter word. These include fly, far, gay, ' etc and ddt. Less salubrious, perhaps, are bum and dik.

Then off to Valladolid, where our lunchtime waitress kindly bring us an English menu. But then has to get a Spanish one as she can't tally the English dishes with their Spanish equivalents. BTW . . Does anyone know what 'Saquito de Brick' is? Or what 'crushed eggs are in Spanish?

We go for an evening urban camino and enjoy a small glass of expensive, low quality wine in Plaza mayor. Followed by an attempt - not very successful - to find the tapas dishes the city is famous for. But the buildings and monuments are marvellous.

And so to bed. Tired but happy. Surely the way everyone wants to do it.
