Good bye STO. Domingo!
I didn’t sleep again, but was ready to hoist the pack and meander up the path. It started misting rain, so I frantically pulled out my rain gear and pack cover. No one else was wearing rain gear. After sweating for about a mile, I looked up to see a giant wooden cross on a hill and I knew I should stop and take everything back off and put it away.
Lucky for me, there were two people at the cross and as I put everything away we begin to talk. They were a couple from Pennsylvania and were very kind. Jim and Jane, my new friends. We walked together all day today and I was able to help Gene with her feet. She was wearing inappropriate socks and I feel that they only cost her feet to have friction. I had sheep’s wool in my pack and I carefully wrapped her toes And tied her shoes in a way that prevented her toes from hitting the front of her boot. This act of kindness earned me a nice cup of cafe con leche provided by Jim.
As we were leaving, The country opened up into a magnificent vista of green rolling wheat fields , of mustard blossoms and open sky. Jane and I posed for pictures.
We visited more churches and pondered the open road
Here are some flowers I found in the tiny village before dinner good night everyone tomorrow will be a longer walk
