25,5 km blue sky up to 25 degrees it took 7 hours to reach
Not too speedy today. It was a gorgeous day. We were the last to leave at the hostel and the nature was beautiful. We have had that kind of sceneries before but today was special. For a whole hour, I felt alive, a hallelujah feeling. I felt like a PILGRIM.. of course and fortunately, it did not last. My feet reminded me of the worldly of the whole enterprise, then I became tired and cranky.
It surprises me that instead of becoming fitter and fitter, I feel like totally untrained. One leg refuses to bend. So it is as a miserable pilgrim that I ecame to the hotel booked the day before. It was too cheap but I followed the crowd. It remains me of the horrible hotels we booked when backpacking in the 1980 th... after 15 minutes ( I had managed to spread everything I have in the backpack) came a warning from the room beside that they had found a bedbug very much alive in the bed. I was ready to pack and leave. But as a responsible pilgrim, I decided to face the adversity and to stoically sleep in that very room. I am at the moment miserably occupying the far corner of the room as long as possible from the bed. It is going to be a long night.
And we have arrived in Galicia today. It is 192 km left to Compostella....
