Day 26. Mérida to Aljucén (17.5 km)

Breakfast with my prodigal friends, Rosa and Palitos.

Walk past the always-impressive aquaduct.

Onto the highway out of town and to the Roman dam at Proserpina. The day was overcast and good for walking. I felt good in this familiar ground – this is my third year in a row that I’ve walked this stage.

I passed one German woman who was walking very slowly.

I had reserved a bed and on arrival I found the albergue full of Germans and Italians. Nationals in groups tend to stick together so there has not been much attempt at conversation. I have been content to catch up on my blog!
