we started the anniversary weekend with a vague plan to make some hula hoops and have a bonfire. the weather forecast was grim, and we were just 4 people because a car full of people dropped out.
at this point, to be perfectly honest, even i was wondering what we were actually going to do all weekend but during the journey ideas were flowing and included going to the new restaurant in caseres, exploring arens de lledó and trying to get a fire permit, a horseriding tour, trying to crush eggs longways in an attempt to prove the amazing strength of dome structures, cooking sweet potatoes and chestnuts, and buying a huge tarpaulin and trying to make a marquee type structure so there was a dry space for hula hooping. our visit to Bot with vinegar drinking and a museum of rural life was just an unexpected bonus.
Restaurant Ca La Guária in Caseres was an interesting experience, they were totally spun out by a non-fish eating vegetarian, but i thought the lamb was lovely and it’s pretty exciting to have a proper attempt at fine dining within 2 km of boodaville (click the web to see how fancy they are)
