Dinner at Santa Brigada was very good. We had a fresh salad (They always put tuna in the salads) and home-made paella with chicken.
I had a wonderful breakfast this morning of fresh orange juice, eggs, cheese, tomatoes, cucumbers and tea.
I saw a man walking today with flip-flops and carrying two pair of shoes because his feet hurt too much. Here he is walking towards San Anton Convent that is now used as an Albergue. The convent had been used to take care of pilgrims and was dedicated to the cure of a disease that spread across the Middle Ages. I was happy to see Lydie again.
A couple of people have commented about how happy I look in my photos and I realized that I am usually smiling the whole day. The Camino is wonderful.
I enjoyed the town of Castrojerez. I loved the man who was cutting lavender for his Albergue.
David was selling food at the top for a donation and he had a sign that said he had tools to repair backpacks and boots. He fixed the strap on my pole that had broken.
David Moran and Lydia and I stopped for a bit today. David went over the map with her.
It actually rained for a couple of minutes before I reached the town of Itero de la Vega. I put on my rain jacket and took it off almost immediately. This place is really small.
David, who fixed my poles, just showed up at the La Mochia Albergue where we are sleeping – what a treat
Elodia and I are making dinner tonight and will eat with Rosa. This will be our last night together because they have to take a taxi tomorrow to Fromista and then a bus to Leon. Another hard goodbye.
