I stopped for a breather and noticed some really nice tracks in the surrounding hills.
Pity I was on a bit of a clock

It was now 11:30 and I stopped for brunch and fuel in Huesca

Notice how blue the Repsol fuel is..

Aguero, West of Hueca:


The terrain started to change again as I continued my way Westward



This track continued on for quite some distance

Heading to Luna


Felt like I could encounter Maximus the Gladiator anytime soon. I loved the striking golden fields of weat :thumleft:

Luna in the distance


Leaving Luna behind and heading to Ferasdues:


Ek was nou al lankal gereed vir nog 'n bier maar hier gaan fokol aan nie mense. Dink die hitte maak dat almal siesta.

Los Bañales; it was a Roman settlement in a galaxy far, far away.



Looks like it could have been part of an aqua duct

Happy to arrive at Casa Pedro




They grow their own produce and I had an awesome dinner.

Anything off camera observations? Must be world's apart. Seems isolated, is it? Meeting other travellers?

Saw 2 groups of riders; one bunch on what looked like CRF250L's and a bunch of KTM's with a couple T7's.

All heading in the opposite direction.

Most towns that I went through, were probably built in the 800's so they are mostly built on a hill, with some kind of fort/castle for protection, leaving open spaces between towns.

I rarely encountered any traffic or people on those minor roads.
I probably spoke to less then 10 people in those 5 days.

It was great!
