Posada Real Casa de la Tepa** (194€, for two nights)
We land in Madrid at 10:30 AM after an overnight flight via Dallas. Then take the 1:45 PM bus to Astorga, arriving at 6. Walk to our hotel… it’s welcoming and lovely! GREAT BATH! Then dinner across the street at a cozy restaurant. Bonnie has garbanzos with cabbage, then beef and boiled potatoes with cheese, plus fries. Nick has delicious cocida sopa and excellent roast chicken with peppers, and (no surprise) ice cream (all in for 24€).
