DAY 17 Monday 17 September


• Everything comes in plastic bags unless you say ‘¡no plastico!’ But the baker did give me a nice piece of greaseproof paper when I asked. 

 • The local red wines are very strong and delicious! This label shows the Peña Cortada Viaducto.

 • Quite a few houses have rows of bottles or water containers in front of gates and doors. I think they are mainly empty or to unoccupied properties and I wondered why? I asked a neighbour; apparently it’s to stop dogs peeing in the corners!
