Ok, so Teruel turned out to be a disappointment. All there was were old station buildings and no town. It was there somewhere off to one side buried amongst some unhealthy looking industry. So no provisions for now but still have something to keep me going.

Caudé was the next place. It that had nothing apart from some toothless farmers and a women selling wool jumpers in the street.

The landscape has now opened up into a large plateau surrounded by hills where there is little else than farming (although no idea for what, the earth looks pretty unpromising), and then slap bang in the middle of it is a scene from Mad Max. No idea what they are doing either!

The info board by the side of the route suggests a steeper climb on the next section so that will slow progress. Also need to take a small diversion into a town for provisions so that will waste half an hour. Still, it’s lovely to be here!
