Oviedo to Grado


16.00: Terry says he has reached Grado and is staying in the hostal for the night, where there is a café below. The albergue is 3.5km further on and does not have food.
(Various friends told him to make sure he was well fed! This is the reason for the frequent comments on pizzas etc. Terry recommends the Bacalao a la Vizcaina* with ensalada mixta - which could have been enough for two!)
It has been hard and thirsty work walking because of the humidity. (2 litres of water plus coca cola and coffee.) Also Terry prefers the rural walking and way-marking. He got lost briefly leaving Oviedo and, as a result, went round the Plaza de Liberación twice before leaving town.
In Grado it is still very humid with thunder in the mountains, but only a few drops of rain so far.
