Day 28: Ameliabidos

Obidos is pronounced Oh-bee-doe-sh, so it's a bit hard to combine with Amelia, but close enough. Deal with it.

I can't believe how pleasantly surprised I can still be with every town and not get bored of them. It's incredible how different they all are and they're already 30-45 min apart! Obidos is a little castle with the entire town within the walls, which you could even climb and walk along in some parts. My jelly legs couldn't handle much of it, especially with holding the baby as there was no support, so I aborted that plan pretty quickly being the responsible parent that I am.

Justin was driving me crazy so spent much of my time shouting at him to get down from down below.

It was actually a pretty authentic little town and clearly full of locals going on about their daily lives with the occasional knick knack stores down the main road.

The one big tourist thing they had here was Ginja - a cherry based liquor that they sold in shots out of a chocolate cup. Yeah, that was pretty friggin delicious.
