Although today was a bit shorter, only 15 miles, it was slow going due to the up and down climbing made more tricky with a rocky trail. Thank goodness for sturdy poles. A nice cloud cover and cooler temperatures helped with the comfort of the walk. Glenn was joined again by his new friend, Joe, and good conversation was a bonus. They are staying in the same albuerge and share a room for seven people. When I spoke with him today, no one else had joined them yet. The hotel offered both a dinner and breakfast option which is always a good deal. The room was 12 Euros, a pilgrim menu of three courses was 12 (and delicious), and breakfast is another 3. Total = 27 Euros !!
Tomorrow will be another 6 AM start to the walk, but much shorter. He said it’s expected to rain, so he’s going to try wearing the rain pants and rain cover for his pack.
Buen camino, Glenn!
