... Saw some great sights - the dog minding his goats, a husband and wife ploughing the fields with their cows. Stopped in Ruitelan around 1pm - probably our earliest stop so far, rang and chatted to Breac in the arvo (spoke to Kyran in the morning) and rested most of the afternoon. Enjoyed a magnificent communal meal with Louie and Robert and had a dorm with only 6 ...
Last night Richard and I stayed in a large albergue in Fonfria while Warren pushed on with the other group to Triacastella, about 9 kms away.
We were up over 1200 metres so it was cold. Luckily it was not raining, which is a miracle for Galacia at this time of the year. Attached to the albergue is a padrozza which is a large, low circular hut with a thatched roof. It would have held a couple of hundred people but for the communal meal of soup, stewed meat and potatoes, ...

Bierzo ...
The morning is cool and we set off after 7.30am and another bad breakfast - I just want fruit with some French yoghurt, surely not too much to ask for!! We both start our day hungry again (dad still not understanding why he cant get eggs on his undercooked toast) heading up to Linares and then we ascend further up to Alto de Dan Roque (1270m) which has a huge pilgrim statue at the top to keep us all inspired to continue. The next 16.5km to Triacastela is a happy ...
