We're here in this small Spanish city while revising our walking plans to avoid the unexpected heat--95 degrees F. expected this afternoon, and we've been walking through desert-like landscapes. Will probably leave tomorrow for Aldeanueva, heading northward and avoiding long legs that would have us walking until mid-day. A break in the heat is expected by mid week.
While in Plasencia we've been seeing the few sights (photo) and sipping drinks on the Plaza Mayor (photo). We thought about sitting around in front of the cathedral until we spotted someone (photo) who had been stuck there for at least 700 years!
