No van day (almost)

Today, we did a wonderful loop hike right from the Hotel Fuentes de Lucia.

Breakfast at 8:30 am, early for the Spanish but perfect for the Americanos still suffering jet lag. Juan Carlos made scrambled eggs, unusual for the Spanish who usually just have coffee and perhaps a piece of bread.

We then hiked up to the Molinos de Corroriu (the mills) and the village of Fresnedo, down to Villaorille where we stopped for a cold drink at El Pantano Parrilla on the Embalse de Valdemurio, the reservoir on the rio Trubio. Then back to Faedo via the Senda d'Oso. A wonderful lunch of an eggplant moussaka, again courtesy of Juan Carlos, and now some quiet time before we head into the village of Proaza where they are having their fiesta this weekend. At 6 pm, they will be trying to set the Guinness World Record for the most people doing a traditional dance.

Last night we had potato puree (mashed potatoes) and roast chicken with apples and garlic. Yum!
