My Camino Route in 2017

My Camino Route in 2017
This year (2017), I will be walking most of the Camino Levante from Albacete to Zamora I've alloted three weeks in September and October, but may have time at the end for more walking.

Belorado


Working the wheat ground. It is too rocky to use a disc, so a chisel is used instead.


A good photo of me on my day's walk

I arrived here in Belorado about 1 pm and checked into a new privately run albergue- only 22 beds with 6 showers and 4 toilets - a very good ratio. After showering and washing clothes, I wandered around town, but everything is closed up for the afternoon. Also, I could not locate an unsecured Wi-fi siganl anywhere and no computer in the albergue and no internet cafe. In desperation, I went to the municipal library when it reopened at 4 pm and was able to get free use of a computer for an hour. I tried to transfer and upload some photos but this computer won´t let me do it. Sorry!

The walk today was 15 miles, more uphill than down. I have two new small blisters, but am keeping them covered and they are not a problem. Tomorrows walk is also going to be 15 miles, but will be even more uphill, so might be a challenge.

By the way, Santo Domingo de la Calzada made many road improvements and built bridges in the area back in the 1100´s for the use of the pilgrims. Calzada means ¨causeway¨. He is apparently a patron saint for engineers in Spain.

Finally the weather is sunny and maybe about 80 degrees. Yesterday, I even took a picture of my shadow, since I had not yet seen it here in Spain.
