    COVID No Jousting This Year

    We were in Hospital de Orbigo last year when they were setting up, but didn't stay long enough to see any jousting. In the bridge picture you can see where they were setting up ( to the left of the bridge as you walked into town). The other picture shows the town's decorations as they prepared.

    I also have neck issues and have used a Cocoon brand Hyperlight Air-Core travel pillow. You can buy it at REI and inflate to whatever feels good to you. It weighs 3 oz and packs small. I take mine everywhere that my down pillow can't go. You won't be sorry and your neck will be happy.
