Palencia - Leon

120 km

21 September 2-23


I had a lovely whole squid for dinner last night in Palencia.  See the pictures.  That was about 10:30 pm, and people were still coming in to the restaurant at 11 pm sitting down to eat.  Spaniards don’t even think of starting dinner until at least 8:30 pm.  In the morning I was up very early and on the road shortly before 7 am, when it was still dark.  It doesn’t get light util 8 am here at the moment.  The weather was not great, rain showers and a stiff breeze out of the west right in to my face.  I had 115 km to do, so it was doing to be a challenge.  However, I made it, arriving in Leon for 7 pm, meeting up with Dean and Bev, and going for dinner.  It was a tough day of cycling, mostly across the flat plains of Leon, but made difficult by the weather and especially the wind.  There you are, I have mentioned the wind !
