Quintanarraya 10 October 2019




I am really out in the middle of a very depopulated area again. I walked out of the Duoro valley and through farmland and forested areas today, crossing a few summits, then the in between valleys with small tributaries. It was a kind 32 km or 19 miles. The worst part was that 2/3 of it was on pavement with no alternative. My guidebooks promised a lively bar/social center in the ayuntamiento, but it was closed up tight. I called the number listed for the albergue, but just got a voicemail. I wandered over to the locked albergue and did find someone who had a key after talking to a few people on the street. There is supposed to be a good shop here but I couldn't find one. Luckily, I carried in enough food to last me through my walk tomorrow.
