Todays walk was 28 km or 17 miles. I originally thought to split it into two days walk as there was supposed to be a pension in the middle. I never saw it, so just kept walking. At the 18 km mark, was the Cafe/Bar Casa Julia where I stopped for a needed ham and chesse bocadillo and a large beer. This was the first place to eat since Betanzos. We are now away from the sea and heading higher inland. There was a steep 10% climb today, 350 meters continuous gain in a little over 3 km.
Tonight's albergue is in a little village also out in farmland with nothing else around. I did order a menu del dia, which will be delivered around 8 pm, but I'm hungry now at 5:30. Seven other pilgrims, all from last night showed up so far, but they all took off for a while, maybe to walk to the village that is two km away to visit the bar. Also, no unsecured wifi here, so will be posting this at least a day late.
From here it is 40 km to Santiago-I plan to walk 24 km tomorrow, then 16 km the next day.
Here is the Casa Julia, my lunch stop.
