I hadn't seen any of Ciudad Rodrigo the evening before. After our meeting and dinner, it was after 10:30 and I thought sleep was the best thing for me. I got up early for breakfast though. Myron and Joey had said that the view from the walls of the Parador were great so I went to see for myself. Views of the Rio Agueda nad of the town were really nice and the grounds of the Parador were also very pretty. From this vantage point and looking in the right direction, I'm sure people from another time could see the Portuguese invaders coming easily!
