I DON'T BELIEVE IT!! I have just had to teach Nod to use a recycling bin  Banghead Banghead

We move on tomorrow and Nod volunteered to take out the rubbish, mainly wine bottles  redface:

I pointed out the 4 large recycling bins on the opposite side of the road. He reappeared with the rubbish, declaring that the bins are all sealed. We went back down in the lift and I marched him to the OTHER SIDE of the bins where there were apertures for bottles, rubbish, cardboard and so on  Banghead Banghead Banghead

He is an utter clown. And he is STILL trying to speak Italian  cussing: cussing: cussing:

Finally in Segovia despite Nod's utter navigational incompetence  Banghead Banghead

Hotel car park is one of those robot jobs where the car disappears on a lift and gets stacked underground  scared2: scared2: scared2:

OK. One for Miss D

I last came here 30 years ago, but had forgotten how stunning it is:

1. Sunny and warm with snowcapped mountains around
2. Fabulous (and cheap at 30 Euros) sort of boutique hotel bang in the centre
3. Beautiful Plaza Mayor with added cathedral
4. Astounding Roman viaduct (no mortar, held together by its own weight)
5. Medieval walls
6. Found fantastic little restaurant down a backstreet:

Lunch: Roast peppers stuffed with salt cod
Perfectly cooked sirloin steak
Choc truffle mousse with toasted almonds
Bottle of wine
Coffee

10 Euros  Shocked:

Nod said his cod was perfect and tried Tiramisu for the first time

Went over the road to a delightful square and found a little bar wide open but unstaffed. Eventually restaurant owner appeared (it was his bar) and we ordered coffee and brandy. He gave that to us gratis  Shocked:

This place is STUNNING!!
