I did put some captions on, but they seem to have been wiped.
People said some really nice things about my video of the Aragonés, so I've done one of the Invierno. It's well worth doing, the scenery is spectacular, especially the Rio Sil and some interesting places, e.g. Las Médulas -one of the earliest examples of industrial landscape destruction: the Romans enslaved the locals to construct venturi-type water channels to blast huge chunks of rock off the hillside so they could gather the gold. Lemos de Monforte monastery has a stunning wood carving altar piece and a wine growing museum/centre (Mencía is the local wine). It is well way-marked (if a little faded) and there are (or were) other pilgrims on it, but not so many.
If we can't go there yet, at least we can look at the pictures and dream.
