The people here are incredibly nice and helpful, and patient as all the Spanish lessons we did before coming here are virtually no use (to me anyway) as they speak so fast I can never understand whats being said and my pronnounciation is so bad nobody understands me! Petrol or nafta as they call it here is about a pound a litre, not as cheap as I originally thought but the people here have had some pretty serious inflation recently so its even more difficult for them. I found out its been cold and snowing back home so I'll share these photos with the Europeans to see how meetings in December look here!
The one and oly "Pollo"
Inside of La Posta with travellers names everywhere including a surprising amount of Japanese
Fionas adopted rabbits, they are all around the garden
Having pre dinner beer in the garden
Look at the weather!!
Imagine this in the wet!!! The front tyre was a very worn car tyre as well
Firing the starting Cannon, how cool is that!!
Yes its for real!!!
Las Chica's who helped with the organisation
Fiona with Adriana who gave her a free T shirt, nice people
After a great couple of days camping at La Posta time to move on to Sierra de la Ventanna, another stright road for 100 miles then after a fuel stop we could see hills....yes!! and the road had bends then, the last 50 miles into the town was just like Scotland (apart from the 30 Deg C plus weather)
Sierra de la Ventana is a tourist town and very different to what we've seen so far, more European, we eventually decided to camp at El Paraiso campsite, nice site and an incredibly helpful guy running it. I'd reccomend it if you pass by this way, also De La Mancha in the main street, good food and nice people! We'll be here for a couple of days before the run down to Viedima, no point in heading to cooler climes just yet!
