Arrived in Sarria at noon today.
I stopped counting the kilometers that I do a day, it does not seem important any more.
The climb up to o'Cabriero was long and tough and I was very lucky that it was sunny. Did not stay long and walked on to Fonfria and stayed in the albergue. There is just a farm with milk cows and the smell left no doubt of where we were. They had 60 beds and were full. Started to rain heavy in the afternoon. Had a wonderful pilgrim dinner, it was one long table for 30 people. And what a surprise who should sit next to me, remember the frenchman in sandals in the mud at the beginning. I think it was in the first week. I did not recognize him as he has lost 16 pounds, but he asked me where my brother and sister in law was then I had a good look and recognized him. What a difference 4 weeks make. He still has some trouble with his feet but keeps on going. The walk today was hard, mostly downhill on what seemed riverbed but is the Camino. Saw a nice albergue before Sarria but kept on going. After getting in to town I was sorry that I had not stopped.Sarria is teeming with pilgrims it is the starting point of the requisite 100 km. to get your Compostela and a lot of people who do not have time to do the whole way start here. On top of that they have some kind of fiesta, so loud music everywhere with rides for the kids and food and drink stands everywhere. So I took a taxi back to the albergue at the edge of town, have now a nice private room as there are few pilgrims here. Nice and Quiet. Will have a good rest as the next stretch to Santiago will be very busy.
From here it is 110.0km to go. The mural is on a wall in Sarria this is just part of it.
Hugs to all
