Good morning, Asturias!

When was the last time I woke up to the sounds of cows mooing and roosters crowing? Too long ago for me to remember, I suppose.

Cow mooing in Proaza, Asturias
This was one of the culprits!
Honestly, the mooing was so loud, it felt as though the cattle were right beneath the window, but they were in a farm across the road. All right, time to get out and about, say hello to the animals, and see what I could find for breakfast.

Proaza, Asturias
Baa baa white sheep...
Boy, this is a change. Misty mountains in the distance protect their valleys between them, the sun slowly warming up the crisp air; it's almost 10 am and the main road was still deserted. The whole town felt deserted. I walked down the road, heading towards the centre.

Sexy valley
There were a handful of shops, bars, restaurants, and a couple of small supermarkets. I went into one of them, got some stuff from the small selection, and headed back to the apartment to have some breakfast before heading for that distance in the photos...
