Hola from Siurana, Spain

Sunday, October 26, 2008

We've moved camp to Siurana, Spain. Siurana is about two hours drive from Barcelona, south-west and inland a bit. Its quite high, at 700m, so its not been the warmer destination we've dreamed of. The first two days it poured, and on the third it fined up into a beautiful blue-sky warm day. Today was the same. The day it cleared we walked through the old village as the mist rose and descended, and we took some cool photos.

The campground is awesome. Its run by a chap called Toni. He's very friendly and full of great advice. He's also an amazing climber, and has set a huge number of routes in Siurana, and other parts of the world. To add to his hi-achieving, he's also qualified and attending the New York Marathon next week. The campground is also home to about 4million stray cats. Leaving a plate out will result in feline licking noises five minutes after you've gone to bed.

We're really enjoying the presence of other climbers, as when we left Gorges du Tarn, we were the last to leave. Its been much more social and easier to meet people here.
