Here’s a short post to catch up.
The weather was OK and the walk quite pleasant – forest paths and country roads that go straight through little settlements. There are signs of commerce during the busy Camino season, but most are closed now.
Here is a truck full of new concrete marker cairns, being installed to make pilgrims on their way. I’m not sure what vehicle they use to get on the smaller paths.
Arrived in Sarria, which is an actual city. This is a common starting point for people who have just a week to walk. It qualifies for the 100 km distance that one must walk to get a compostela (the certificate issued by the Santiago cathedral).
I stayed in the Albergue O’Durminento, which was very nice, with 2 others in an 8-bed room.
