Long pull out of Leon!

What a long walk through dingy neighborhoods, past garbage cans over-flowing, not to mention UP hill. It wasn’t on my top ten of mornings. 

I’m always forgetting something, and today it was sun screen. I had a long sleeve shirt and wanted desperately to take it off, but the sun would have burnt me. I emptied my water bottle and could see a village coming up.

In the middle of a turn in Oncina, this volunteer had a table set out with all kinds of treats and of all things: a small bottle of sunscreen! So I picked up that, a granola bar and filled my water bottle.  

A lot of us wanted to get off the road and had taken the scenic route. It truly was off the beaten path. It took me from 8:00 to 1:00 to go 20 km today, but I’m thinking that they weren’t measuring the part of Leon that we walked thru, it could have been more. 

But I shot a few pretty pictures of the Pamodor (The Way) and will post them:

I’m staying in the worst Albergue yet, but you just get your boots on on the morning and get “the heck outta Dodge.”  Miss everyone.
