day trip to Fatima
The older gentleman at breakfast was so nice, what this hotel lacked in newness it made up for the nice person in charge of breakfast. Always very attentive to our needs. He always made our espressos and would come around to see if we needed anything. This morning we walked in and out of the hotel, underestimating the weather. We came back for a jacket and then for rain gear. We caught a local bus to Lairia, then a transfer to Fatima. Fatima was just OK, with the rain on and off it was rush to one building or another. This Basilica reminded me of the Basilica in Mexico City -incredible wide open spaces for Mass when the Pope comes or for special events. Carmen bought and lighted two candles as she always does for Gabby and Jessy. On the way back to Caldas we caught the local bus to Laira then an Flix back to Caldas. The Flix is definitely a better price but both are easy to navigate. In Laira we got a few slices of Pizza with beers while we waited for our next bus.
