I have today been walking for two and a half weeks and I am officially half way 373.9kms to go.
I have been meeting so many wonderful people and staying in some wonderful places and walking through ancient towns. I am feeling very small in the scheme of things but could not have asked for anything more enlightening that what I am experiencing.
Today I walked again with Oswin, Kian and Celia and we had a good fun day. They are now following my blog so I am going to put a few photos up of them so they can remember our fun time we had. This is at dinner last night
The first 5 kms before breakfast and we entered the town of Carrion de Los Condes
Stopped for breaky and headed out of town
Today was a very hot day and a long and flat dusty road. We had been told to make sure we had plenty of water and snacks as there was nothing on the way for 17kms and they were right. No shade either
Hat, sunscreen and long sleeved cotton shirts today. I don’t know how anyone can walk the way in the summer!
17kms later and over a little hill and there was the town of Calzadilla de la Cueza and what a relief. Straight to the Bar, pack off, poles against the wall and in for a muy grande cerveza!
In fact so thirsty didn’t take a photo I just drank it
5.6 more kms to go and I was calling it quits. I was hot, sweaty, tired and I was ready to call it a day but still a few more hills to climb and we passed a shepherd with his flock all with bells on and with the flock were goats and a very cute donkey
My friends have gone on to another town so I will walk on my own tomorrow although I don’t think that will be for long as I have just met another German man who is walking to Santiago.
It will be my pilgrims dinner and early bed tonight as my body is tired.
Buenos Tardes me amigos.
