After two really long days of walking we are now in Sto. Domingo de la Calzada. I think it’s between 560 and 550 km to Santiago de Compostela. We have checked into a hotel – a really nice (and expensive) one to have a break from the dormitory experience and communal washing facilities. What a luxury to have clean starched sheets and fluffy towels! We’ve walked through some stunning scenery and although the weather has been drizzly, it was much better than full sun with very little shade. We are just about to venture out for dinner and will probably bump into a number of fellow walkers who will be wondering why we are not in the auberge. I expect we’ll opt for the Pilgrims meal again unless we want to wait until after nine for an a la carte menu – however by that time we may have passed out from exhaustion helped with a few beers.
Here are some unedited images from the past couple of days:
