Foncebadón – Not FONZbadón…

Unfortunately not named after The Fonz… might make the place more interesting. One restaurant and four albergues – only one of which had WiFi (which is unusual)(I’m being unfair – we didn’t make it to the fourth albergue, which is run by the church, but I’m thinking a place playing Gregorian chants probably doesn’t have WiFi – I am happy to correct that if I am in error).

Pony sure can pick the strangest places to stay…

Stormy weather!

Windmills for Trog to tilt at. Should proved to be an electrifying experience.

So this is the breakfast roll referred to as a "Napoleon." For all the monuments to heroic battles against him, you would wonder why they would name ANYTHING after him.
