I hope the dates aren’t out of order: the WiFi isn’t strong out here in the country.
The countryside was beautiful, but the wind and low temps made for fast walking to keep warm.
Today I made the decision to walk a short day, partially due to the vertigo and also because I know the hill I have to climb after this town.
Instead, I used a couple of hours to climb up to the ruins of an old castle. Very cool. I took my time in the brisk day, stopping to let my heart catch up. The castle was so amazing. I imagined the conversations in the courtyard and tried to picture living in such tight quarters.
I don’t know if my pictures will load. I may have to load tomorrow.
Making reservations several days out now due to lack of lodging. There are just hundreds of pilgrims a day on the path. I’m never alone. In two weeks my sisters join me. I’m looking forward to that!
I am staying in a newer albergue that is owned by a Korean woman and her sweet Spanish husband. We are having a Korean meal “Bim Bop,” and I remembered reading a book to my Kindergarten class with that title. It looks delicious. Boadilla tomorrow.
