We passed through some lovely countryside between Castelo Branco and Fundao; big open flat plains, dotted with villages and farmhouses. This is cherry country and some trees are in blossom; I don’t know if you get early cherries and late cherries, they’re not all flowering at the same time.

We have PAID for a proper campsite tonight €10.50; the campsite is called Quinta de Covento it’s just outside Fundao, high on a hill overlooking the town. At the entrance to the campsite is this fabulous building which is obviously the old convent, unfortunately it’s neglected and fallen into disrepair.
Beautiful old convent
There’s internet here, so I’ve spent the evening updating my blog, skyping with Henry and Claire and answering emails.
