Carrion de Los Condes

imageAfter a restful night in the albergue En el Camino last night I rose early for a great breakfast in what looked and felt like a hippie commune of he 60s. With fog and a flat course ahead of me covering the 26 km to The town above was over in a quick 5 hours. I will spend the night in a private room (splurge) at the convent of Santa Clara. This was not a pretty day as the fog was thick until about noon. I will try to attach a picture of the scene I was treated to all day. Once here it is the usual attending to cleanliness and then on to find food. Alcachofas con jamon and I am ready for rest and another day on the Camino. There are 257.4 miles to go as I complete my two weeks of walking.  Camino friends on my way appear and reappear.  As I walk at a faster pace than most, I walked. While with a nice Spanish couple working their way thru the Camino a week at a time each year.  I walked with a couple young women from Colombia and Canada, and two German girls. People from all over the world doing their own Camino in their own way. Until tomorrow si Dios quiere

    Michael, wonderful to read of your adventure each day. Spoke at length with your better half yesterday. We agreed that you will have stories to tell for a long time. I know that you delivered papers for something like 2000 days in a row, so another two weeks on El Camino won’t faze you. I’m jealous of your experience. Proud of you, bro.
