Still inCarrion de los Condes. 0km.
Had a good nit
es rest and again watched as all the pilgrims left, this time I did not feel sad. I think slowly I am accepting my slower pace. The feet feel better today and I will walk to Caldadillo de la Cueza. 17.0km. and will forward the pack to save my ankles as much as possible. It is interesting to see that the village is almost empty before noon and after lunch it fills up with pilgrims and then the local people also come out. These villages are very poor and the Camino is their only industry. Things are so much easier that I speak spanish and quite often I get asked to translate. This afternoon I went to a pilgrim service, very nice. Then went out for dinner just a big salad. Met Monica from Germany who just retired and also is doing the Camino alone and just like me is never alone. There are a lot of biking pilgrims all decked out in their gear and as soon as thy arrive they clean their bikes. They do an average of 100 km. a day.
It is now 8 pm. and 20 degrees outside, so all the cafe's are full.
This is the convent where I stayed.
Hugs to all
