Wednesday October 14
We had a quiet night last evening in Fonferiaa. just sat in the lounge and chatted with an interesting couple from South Africa and one from Ireland. It was an early night. I had to check very carefully for bedbugs as they have been a problem on the Camino...there was a big can of bugsparay on the shelf when we arrived. People are getting eaten alive..well maybe not, but still not very pleasant.
The walk today was`probably the best yet. We left at the crack of dawn, upsetting many pilgrims, but the stars were once again unbelievable, and the landscape as the sun came up was spectacular. A quilt of every colour of green imaginable dotted with the lights of the homes in the tiny hamlets. The walk was along dirt paths shaded with deciduous trees that passed through every tiny farm along the way. Chickens, pigs, sheep, cows, it was fab. There are also two horses doing the camino. Really neat. They have riders of course.
We are in sarria tonight. we were the only ones in our room for a long time, but I see know that we have roommates.
The leg was pretty good today. I am really thankful that it is not tendonitis, you should see what some of the people are going through. I am healing up quite nicely and Spanish drugs are cheap and plentiful.
