Not too much to say here but lots to look at. It was another nice walking day. I like to look at people’s veggie gardens, as well as the animals and larger agriculural activities. Today we saw what was probably a granite quarry. Granite features very prominently in all construction – from fence posts to walking paths to buildings, of course. Slate is also widely used – e.g. for roofs.
Today’s destination was Lalín, a pretty big town (pop 20,000) and the place where the Camino Invierno merges with the Camino Sanabres. So, there will be more pilgrims en route. It is disconcerting to walk into an urban(ish) place after a few days going through rural and village areas. I lost sync with my amigos although they were staying at the same place. A big (!) town like this becomes less personal. Since today is Sunday, the evening dining options can get severely reduced. Fortunately, I ate earlier at a hotel that served until 3 pm, so I only had to supplement in the evening at the nearby Repsol gas station.
