We will switch to the Camino Frances, where logistics should be easier. So, from Baños we took a bus to Salamanca to spend a night, and then will go to Leon. The rest of Plan B has not become evident yet!
In Salamanca I walked down to the Roman Bridge crossing the river, to see what the pilgrim entrance into the city would be. Just approaching the bridge was someone I recognized – a Spaniard who had stayed at the albergue in Cañaveral and was just walking into Salamanca. I took his picture for him and wished him Buen Camino.
Nice Hostal Concejo near the Plaza Mayor for €37. We foolishly entered the elevator with our packs on, and could hardly get out. Managed an selfie, though! Due to mirrors it looks a LOT more spacious than it was. In fact we could not turn around.
