Walked from Sahagun to El Burgo Ranero 16 km. then took the bus to Mansillo de los Mulas.
Had a very noisy nite and could not take pictures of the running of the bulls as I was out of batterys.
Met up with Monika from Creston and Tao the monk und had a very nice dinner together.
Forwarded my pack, and had a good breakfast before starting the walk.
Sahagun has a lot of history, the bridge dates back ti the 9th. Century. Legend has it that the trees along the river are from when the crusaders put their lunches in the soil thy became trees.
Walking over the bridge you really feel put back in time as you walk over the same stones as pilgrims in the 9th. Century. I find it very inspiring to see so many young people walking the Camino, and talking to them gives me a lot of hope for the future. Met a girl from California who also had trouble wit her feet, she had trained a lot for the Camino and found it humbling to now need assistance from fellow pilgrims,. All her life she got whatever she needed with money, and getting so much help from strangers made her re-evaluate her life's direction. Having lunch in our auberge a young man from Italy rolled in on his wheelchair and was assisted by two friends, we all cheered and clapped as he came by. Today as I waled in someone called my name and it was Nancy from Holland of whom I had written earlier, her feet are very swollen and I do not know how she can keep on walking. I am off for siesta.
Big Hug to all
