After a night of listening to snoring ( tonight I’ll have to break open the ear plugs), I headed off at around 8 am. About a half an hour later, I stopped to buy an apple and I realised that my sleeping bag had fallen off the top of my back pack where it sits . Luckily, I found it lying on the footpath almost back where I started.
Spanish kids seem to have big school bags!
The day started with a walk along a busy road . The choice was the bitumen or an uneven ditch littered with rubbish.
However before long I was walking along a pleasant track with olive trees on one side and citrus in the other.
Olive trees as far as you can see.
We passed what looked like a small castle.
Kev needed to do a few running repairs .
The countryside became a bit more barren as the track started a climb of about 300 metres to Castiblanco.
Thanks Getting close now ! The day didn’t seem too hot, but like always I was sweating heavily. Later Kev told me his pocket device got up to 35 degrees .
The hostel is very nice and clean and they even do everyone’s washing and all for a donation.
This is the view from the hostel.
And this is the centre of town.
There’s only one hostel and there are about 10 pilgrims here tonight. There’s an €8 pilgrims menu down the road. Last night I paid €7 for 3 courses, 2 glasses of wine and coffee – about $10 Australian !
