Day, 22 still wet

Little bit of sun

Day 22, muy mal! Very bad.
First, Ken, I dedicate this day to you, Today, because i am behind writing this is day 23, just saying, still here. 
And what a horrible day the 22nd was.
It started out with this dog, we saw this dog last night and he was fine, today he decides to attack Al. I mean ruff up, teeth barred looking for flesh to tear out. 
Al was brave, I was preparing to run, I know the worst possible thing to do, but I am terrified of strange dogs.
Then we begin our decent, our guide calls it a steep rock defile, it was wet slate, and it went on, then up, then down, always bad terrain, a lot of it had to be done single file. We have both been doing some extreme hiking between today and yesterday. 
We walked and walked and walked into a medieval city with a castle. A 12th century Templar castle, Castillo de Los Templarios. 
We think this is where we messed up and got lost, we were lost for several hours, and several KM’s.
It was horrible. Everyone was sweet and tried to help us, but language barrier kept getting in the way. Finally these two ladies tried to help us, we followed them and then decided no we need to go back to out last way mark, which we did, civilization at last. We were found!
We checked into a great hostel at a church, Capilla de las Angusti XVIII C.
It was Sunday and they had a market going on, yes I was tired but a market, with all sorts of things for sale. Yes I know I can’t buy anything but I want to see it all anyway. 
Well we had a choice, it was late, eat or to market, Al won, we went to eat.
I am enjoying the blog, and I am glad you guys are too! I read the comments to Al when we have WiFi. One of the problems we have been having is getting in late, and then I am just so tired. We have to do our laundry, by hand in the sink, then ring it out, everything is damp, no sun for days now. We hang some of it from our backpacks and hope the breeze will dry it. Then we have to eat, then blog. So as much as I like doing it, other things are a priority.
I will try to catch up more later.
Until then,
Be well.
