Today was about delicious food.
Of course, there was also a lot of sleeping. I heard later that Dick tried to wake me up by bringing coffee into my room 3 times this morning. It didn’t work. I only remember one time, at which point I said, “Do I smell coffee?” And he said, “Yes, I brought it for you.” And I responded, “That’s nice, but I’m going to keep sleeping now.”
When I finally did wake up, we had apparently both researched on Trip Advisor and come up with the same preferred restaurant for lunch, so we reserved a table.
It was delicious. We shared two excellent and creative vegetarian appetizers, then Dick had mushroom moussaka while I enjoyed grilled duck liver (a favorite). Dessert and wine were disappointments, but service and everything else was excellent.
Then we wandered the city a bit. Caceres is a Unesco heritage site, and is quite gorgeous.
We got rained into a bar a couple of times, but eventually braved it to go back to the apartment, where I slept another few hours.
Our host had recommended a couple of places for tapas and drinks in the evenings, and we walked by her second suggestion but it didn’t grab us, so we went to the second. A winner! Really creative takes on everything, and I mean everything! Excellent wine, excellent service, and wow. Dessert. Yum.
We both travel separately tomorrow — Dick to Madrid and the transport company to take his bike back to Amsterdam, and I will go to Hervas, where hopefully I’ll check into a guesthouse across the street from the thermal spa for a couple of nights. So we’ve made an early night of it. After all, after that dinner, it was hard to get particularly excited about going anywhere else for another drink.
