Hot days are back again

Hello, everyone.

We have gotten to within 50 km of Santiago. We're in a lovely spot above the Parfumeria Moderna in Caldas de Reis. Caldas is an ancient spa town with natural hot springs.

The temps displayed on the pharmacy signs as we walked into town said 38 C. That makes it officially hot. It was almost as hot yesterday when we arrived in Pontevedra.

 Menu board from where we ate
This was the bottle of Tempranillo wine we had with our shrimp and octopus with melted Tetilla cheese.
Yes, I know it's customary to have white with seafood. But we like reds, and we really like tempranillo and Rioja crianza. So the food police can just deal with their anxieties.
