Muscles repaired!
Today I am self-limited again, more than yesterday. Musculature continues to be tired. So I proceed in relax, and feel inside little self-reparations, hour by hour; at the end, in the evening, I feel myself as I slept in a sitting room for all the day! Perfect muscles, and perfect energy.

Around midday, in Eichstatt, I notice a curious building which looks like a university, in a park along the river and close to the cycle path: that IS a university, and its restaurant gives to anyone excellent dishes for incredibly low price. Very friendly!

Arriving in Treuchtlingen at the end of the afternoon, there is a thermal swimming-pool: nice stop to swim for some minutes. Anyway the water is very cold. Then we go in the first zimmer we find, because it is quite late and in this evening we want to eat. This zimmer is inside a farm. Farmers don't speak any word of English, we don't speak any word of German, but in some ways we understand each others. Very countryside! And the restaurant, at few steps from us, offer typical local dishes.
