Salamanca to A Gudiña (2)

I have reworked this as the previous version flipped through at too frenetic a pace! Hope this is an improvement.

Hey, Solitary! there is a picture of a town in this video, was also in the previous at about 4:38...in this one it is at 1:01...where is that, it's just the neatest looking town..sort of soft faded, sherbet colored houses nestled up against the fortress. And thanks for the rework. The first go round had a sense of urgency, but for those of us who don't "know" that route, this is easier...it allows you to focus a bit more and absorb.

Pax, Karin

That's Zamora. One of my favourite places along the route, and another 'Mozarabic' town. In fact all the pix are of Zamora from 0.48 - 1.35. The Coca Cola pic shows the area's Coca Cola Distribution Centre - the 1st thing I saw on entering the town! The pic after that is the pilgrim's hostel (only 5 euros a night, although it's free if you haven't any money) which is a recent renovation - built into the stone walls of the city. It was excellent - with heating, hot showers, a kitchen, laundry facilities, and an extremely friendly and helpful hospitalera.
