When we reach Spain, via a lengthy spectacular gorge, there is an extended day trip to Salamanca. Another university city, there are two cathedrals (connected) and a spire at the end of every street. Although there are plenty of marshals it takes a long time to round everyone up at the end of the day. One lady is totally lost and a couple confess that they didn’t go in the cathedral because they couldn’t find the entrance. I notice that they found the street cafes and drank wine all afternoon without any problem.
