Left Carrion de los Condes by bus to 10km short of Terradillos de los Templarios and walked the remaining 10 km. well I should not say walked but strolled, my pace is now as slow as the french gentleman I told you about in the beginning, but just like him I do arrive at my destination. The Camino is now very flat but the views are amazing, the cloud formations keep changing, and the flowers are in such profusion that we keep stopping to admire them. I think my lesson of the Camino is to slow down, and that I do not have to be first. I met a monk from Tibet and over lunch he told me that I waste too much energy rushing through life, that I should conserve it for health and study. I will have to remember that. Yesterday I walked with a lady from Italy, she took the bus like me as she has lots of blisters. Had a very nice pilgrim dinner and then did some foot care. Slept in a room of 12 beds, I use my sarong to make a little privacy. Had 2 heavy snorers so did not sleep very well. It is funny to see the snorers put earplugs in and then turn around and begin snoring.
Left Terradillos at 8:30 ( I decided to take my time in the morning) after having breakfast, usually cafe con leche and a croissant. Walked for 5 km. and there in the middle of nowhere was a hostel and it is run by a german couple and thy had real german bread, so we stopped and had breakfast #2 very good. It took us 4 hours to walk 16km. I got a sunburn on the back of my legs, today was 27 degrees. It is supposed to be even hotter tomorrow so I will start walking earlier. I get stopped regularly and asked about Canada or people tell me thy had visited Canada or have family there. I am now known on the Camino as Canada. I am now in Sahagun, and the village has a one week celebration and to nite
Hugs to all
