Day 9 Languaridia-Valledeloide
Breakfast was traditional continental with the most delicious pastries! I am feeling so so sorry for myself for being so crook and all these beautiful sights and food to indulge on and all I feel like doing is sleeping and vomiting. None the less, I got to sample the culinary delights and get ready for the vino tasting/tour at 12:30.
The vino was so-so but the cellar the vino was stored in was darn cool! It was like a mini jail hosting the wine till maturity, some 5 years later. We got some video footage of the caves.
Valladeliode is a bigger town. Lots of museums, a few shopping centres and parks. We hit the shopping centre straight away after checking in to look for cold and flu tablets. Instead we bought beer, nuts and yakult (which I now remember we’ve left in the fridge as we’ve set off for Salamanca). We watched Topgear and feasted on our little normal snacks and rested till late evening. We asked the receptionist to advise us on a nice hotel as David wanted to eat more traditional meat. I was ready to throttle him for pulling me away from bed.
Without too much hassle we found the suggested restaurant. I ordered a salad (lettuce, tomato and onion) and David ordered the traditional dish which was a 35 day old suckling lamb stewed in a broth. It was tender and tasty. After we finished the delights it was back to bed (on a full stomach).
