Hi Pauline, thanks so much for fixing my posts. I don't mind at all, I appreciate you making it look better. It's funny but until you mention that the town looked runned down I hadn't thought about it. I guess with the chipped paint and all it does look a bit worn, but as you mentioned I think that's what makes this town interesting.
There is a Posada hotel in the old castle now. I didn't get a chance to look inside but it's in a great location with a wonderful view. I had a delicious dinner in my hotel and my waiter who happened to have graduated with a degree in archeology gave me some interesting historical things about the town walls. As you can see in the photo, the dining room is right next to the wall. He said as other countries came in they built the walls higher and you can tell what country built certain levels. For example when the Romans were here the rocks during their presence are smoother (they are up higher). It was all so interesting.
Another thing he told me was that the minimum wage here is just barely 3 Euro! I was very surprised. I hope that will improve. Still I envy their quality of life here. That is why he has to work a bit before returning to school to further his education. My conversation with him is one of the reasons I really enjoy traveling so much. You can learn a great deal from other people and cultures.
