Carrión de Los Condes to Terradillos de Los Templarios…
After yesterday’s fun little fact about the town named for the rotting flesh of the counts, I did a little research about Terradillos de Los Templarios. The meaning of “small Templar terraces” refers to the time in the 13th Century when the Knights Templar were stationed at a small church here, to provide protect for the pilgrims.
With my morning church fellowship duties, Glenn and I didn’t connect by phone today, but he did send a What’sApp message about his walk and accommodation for tonight. He walked all day with a man named Dom, pictured with the tractor down below. They walked 10.5 miles to get to the first town, but luckily there was a great food truck about half way. Also a sign that that he is half way to Santiago!
The albergue is very, very nice (two verys!!). He paid 30 Euros for a single room and checked in early enough to do some laundry, which dried very quickly in the heat. Dinner was a nice buffet and started serving at 6p.m., unusually early for Spain. But he was glad to eat early and get to bed. Another 5:15 start tomorrow and would like to finish by 1p.m. He’s expecting about the same distance with no services.

I sure am enjoying reading about your adventures! When we did our Northern Spain Bike ride occasionally criss-crossing the Camino, a favorite treat along the way was a Coke Normal and a bag of patatas chips. The cerveza at the end of the day was refreshing, too! May you continue to have good health.
