No orienteering for a couple of days so we are playing at being regular tourists. We've moved to Ourem a medieval village on the top of a hill with a castle- You can imagine the hair pin bends getting up there .  After exploring the castle  (extra) in the morning we visted The "National Monument of Dinosaur Footprints" where 20 tracks of dinosaur footprints were discovered during quarrying work. Quite amazing how they have removed many layers of rock to reveal a massive limestone pavement where dinosaurs walked 175 million years ago. Extra shows some footprints
