The good news is Iain has now recovered – up and around properly for the first time in 3 days. We walked into the village this morning to the local market, well it would be local if we were in Camden! – every stall was owned by a Brit – stalls selling home-made cakes, jewellery, paperbacks and even one selling tinned British produce. The only stall manned by a Spaniard was selling knickers – it was just too weird so we resisted and didn’t spend any cash other than on a coffee stop in the bar.
Back at camp and its a good little site. There is only one shower / loo but its spotless (yes to seat and loo roll). Lovely view straight out over to the mountains, only 2 neighbours so its also very quiet. The owners are lovely and when we arrived they made us a coffee, we have never had that in all the sites we have stayed at. They bought the site 10 years ago and it looks like they are still developing it – its done fairly well and everything is clean and well looked after. The best thing is the owners though and they even offered to go and get us a takeaway curry from the nearest town the night we arrived (we had to decline due to the then digestive problems himself was suffering).
We have started planning our trip home 😦 we will stay here for a couple more days as we want to go and see some of the Pueblos Blancos – being the white villages in Andalusia, Monda is only a few miles from here so hopefully take the van there tomorrow. We also want to visit Coin to see the old and new towns and stock up at Mercadona – we need olives a plenty and also a few boxes of €3 for 5 litres wine to bring home. That should take us to Wednesday and will leave here fairly handy that morning and have a long drive up past Madrid – its going to take 6-7 hours and when we get there will stop overnight. Then we have another 3-4 hours on Thursday up to Santander where we catch our ferry at 5pm.
