    Stopped at Ourense on way to Monforte de Lemos. Five bridges over the Miño River in the city. Two in particular were the stand-outs - the Millennium Bridge featuring a unique eliptical shape with a pedestrian footbridge that surrounds the bridge rising up to 22 metres; and the Ponte Vella, a medieval footbridge built on Roman foundations and the first bridge on the river. It was very hot here. We surrendered to the heat and let Andrea and Damo walk the Millenium Bridge.
    We noticed that in Ourense that signage was in what we think is Portuguese but maybe Galician-Portuguese, for example, streets were Rua ... instead of Calle ..., and the plaza was Praza Maior instead of Plaza Mayor. Also here are hot springs - Ourense holds one of the greatest amount of geothermal water in Europe. There was a public "poza" /outdoor bath that we could go to to enjoy the hot spring but being around 40+° that day, we thought not! We weren't allowed to photograph it either.

    7:50 set off as last :). 9:50 breakfast in Panelas

    In suburb of Ourense we found a pharmacy and an ATM.

    12-13pm: We passed through Ourense along the rio Barbaña. It should be nice city but we had no time for sightseeing. Still 105 km ahead and only 2 days left.
    We met P+P again: they took a taxi, because Paolo couldn’t walk any more.

    Then we set off for Cea (23km). Full of energy (2 beers) and with the right motivation our walking speed increased nearly to the speed of light, so all the distances shortened relativistic by a factor of sqrt(1-v2/c2).Read more
