.... to reach the village alive and in one piece....!
The little town of not more than 500 inhabitants was very quiet, but considering that we arrived almost at 2 p.m., we didn't mind, just looked for the hostal, Clem had recommended and placed ourselves on the welcoming benches in front.

As it was Christmas, though, soon a nice older lady came to see us and asked us if we would like a room - she was the owner of this friendly place. She feeded us with coffee and beer, which we enjoyed out in the sun - after that much outdoors it was quite unfamiliar to eat or drink inside. The friendly pheasant next to us in the garden was nervously running up and down making noises - as if he feared he might be our dinner tonight.

But - after a looooong and pleasantly hot shower we were seated in the dining room and enjoyed a wonderful rich meal (thick soup, potatoes and spinach and thick sauce, followed by a homemade christmas cake).

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
