We had a pleasant meal together in the albergue last night.
We got off to a bad start today. Despite Manolo asking various people about the way out of town, we charged off following what turned out to be the wrong set of yellow arrows relating to an alternate and longer route via Verin.
After wasting about an hour and walking 5 km extra, we got back on track .
This sign is meant to reduce the level accidents but it didn’t seem to slow down traffic .
I picked a piece of this woman’s rosemary to see if I could smell it. I lost almost all my sense of smell about 4 months ago and I’m hoping these 6 weeks out in the fresh air will help but no luck so far.
When the weather lifted there were some beautiful views.
Given the weather, the late start and the distance to the next albergue, not to mention the 1,000m climb, we decided to have a short day and stop at Campobecerros. This view of the town shows the nearby work on the new high speed railway line that’s part of the same line I came across a number of times a week ago near Zamora.
