Spanish towns know how to clean up after a fiesta, but we got out before the street cleaners.
Today, M and M were veering off to explore a new Camino route through Trujillos. You can follow them at http://www.magwood.me. We all said tearful goodbyes, but 10 minutes later we ran into each other again in the first open bar. However, that was treated as an ordinary ephemeral camino encounter, and we moved on quickly.
It was a great walk on good tracks, with a variety of scenery – mysterious road signs, shepherd and his flock, a granite farm (there must have been a quarry but I couldn’t see it.
In Campanario we took photos with the “traffickers of Campanario” (maybe “merchants” would be a better translation) where N had been waiting hours for the slowpokes.
Finally, about 2.5 km past town we stayed in the albergue in an old train station building. The train still comes by, and stops. This proved to be too great a temptation for N, who decided to end her camino and go to Mérida and Málaga for a few days before heading home.
