Pilgrims in the vicinity include a group of 5 or more oldish Spanish guys (I’ve heard they are an outstanding snorchestra), 3 German men (one is a triathlete who can’t make himself walk slowly; he’s suffering from tendonitis or similar and is planning to switch to a bike), one German woman, an American couple, an Italian couple, a Pole, and a Norwegian. Apparently the author of our guide book, Gerald Kelly, is somewhere behind us, collecting info for an update. There are probably more, but they would be moving onward before we start our morning coffee.
The weather is outstanding for walking.
MB has a sore shin and is moving steadily but slowly. We are enjoying a leisurely pace that allows us to examine rocks, trees, agricultural practices, etc.
Today’s highlight was arrival at the ruins of the Roman city, Cáparra.
Elena at our last stop had arranged for us to be picked up at Cáparra and driven to the Hostal Asturias for the night, as 20 km/day seems to be the right distance. Otherwise this would be a long day.
