We arrived fairly late in Ciudad Rodrigo. We unloaded the van and got to our rooms, Just ouside one of my windows, Sergi parked the van. Next to it was a sumptuous red Ferrari. Our next day's briefing was in the bar not too long after getting our bearings. Dinner in the dining room which overlooked the Agueda River followed. We learned that we were only about 20 km away from Portugal. Much of the layout and fortification of the city had to do with keeping an eye out for Portuguese invaders during previous centuries. At dinner, Sergi sat at our end of the table and we all learned more about him and his family.
