It was a chilly 5 degrees when I left Salamanca this morning. I zipped on the bottom of my convertible trousers to make them long and dug out the coat that had been sitting unused at the bottom of my backpack for the last 3 weeks.
I had a bit of a walk getting out of the city along busy footpaths.
School must start at about 9am
It’s a long stage today of 35km and some people in a farm house have set up an albergue around half way. They’ve provided this little shelter with water and photos about 9 km earlier to encourage business. Just past their turnoff they also had a seat in the shade with photos of tbe albergue. Very tempting but I needed to keep going.
I didn’t see another walker all day. Whilst I was having lunch under a tree I heard some Italian and thought it might be my friends, but it was two cyclists.
Lots of planes flying over today
I’m staying in the F y M albergue run by Carmen and her family who are also cooking me dinner.
An interesting albergue rule obviously springing from bitter experience..
