Bits of Oviedo, city of statues and steps:
|The only person I can recall seeing in Spain reading a book in public . . .|
The fotos of the slopes don't do justice to their gradients, believe me!
|Look closely between the houses - It's an autovia, not the AVE I first|
thought it was.
|Disappearing friends . . .|
|Disappearing friends again . . .|
|Hotel in Salas. Old castle tower|
|Odd pilgrims in Salas|
|The hotel again|
|Fortunately, the camino went downwards this time.|
|Notice the WC on the outskirts of this village|
|To the left, ORDIAL. To the right, ORDEAL.|
|Yet another bloody muddy path. Going upwards.|
And these were all taken in Grandas de Salime, before I got the bus back to Oviedo, picked up my car and drove home yesterday.
This last one is in the centre of Oviedo.
I can't add captions for some reason. The 2 ladies in green are the angels (and my lovely new friends) who saved my life in Campiello. After I'd walked 5km at 5kph and then the last km uphill at about 1kph. The mayor is at the bar . . . He's the only other person who lives in Campiello . . .
Coming soon: The fotos of one of the other members of the group, who all went faster and further than me . . .
