Day 6 -- Llandiloes to Builth Wells

The terrain today was much gentler, just one or two big hills. There was one point that we were on single track, on very muddy ground which was a little errr, intense. But over all the calmest day so far.

At one point, there were 4 sheep in the road that refused to let us pass them, for roughly 3 miles. Eventually they did find a hole in the hedge, and we were able to pass. At the next town, we stopped and asked what we should do, which the people there thought was quite funny... sheep are stupid animals, they said, just keep going and they will find their way back.

In the evening we met another couple, whose names I'm sad to report I'd forgotten, but they were antique vendors at a local antique show. The husband had originally trained in France as a chef, and taking up antiquing after retiring.

One thing that we've noticed is that alot of the stuff that is seen as a new trend in the US, such as alternate energy, eating organic, locally grown vegtables is just assumed here which is really cool.
