Sunday, October 4
This will be quick. We are in temprillos del camino (i think). No matter how far or how little you walk, the last hour or hour and a half is brutal. It was actually a great walk today. Cool mornings, and then t-shirts as the sun rises higher in the sky.
Yesterday in Carrion dos le condes we really lucked out at the monastery. A room to ourselves!!!
We ate a pilgrim meal sitting in the beautiful courtyard and it was eary to bed. Gerry has kicked up a nasty blister on his baby toe, so there was some whing, OK not much, but some. I have some really nasty bug bites on the backs of my knees. I am so paranoid about bed-bugs, but I am pretty sure I got these peeing in the woods.
A rather uneventful Sunday. Absolutely everything shuts down on Sundays in Spain so we had to pick up a few supplies yesterday to get us through the day. Gerry bought a case of small kleenex packages...thought it was better than a huge pack of toilet paper. Needless to say we have been handing them out like candy!
It is a whole new group of pilgrims...rather odd. Most are faces that we haven´t seen before, but we chum with an American gal and a couple from Calgary. The Calgary couple are going to take the train tomorrow to Leon, so we probably won´t see them again. Until next time.
