... sandals as after this village it is ALL bitumen to tonight's digs. This is soo working! Brain **** with good outcome! Yay!
Had what we believe will be our last coffee with Heinrich and Markus in the sun by the fountain in Aldeaneuva. They are plodding 30/40kms a day as Markus has to leave Santiago by May 9. Loved their company.

Met back up with Marcus ...
Another lazy start to the day but.......... John decided to investigate a noise in the front wheel and discovered that we had a C.V. joint problem. A trip to Madrid after all, but try to talk to someone first. Meanwhile Marilyn went to the vet, as the dog Tessa had a walking problem and seemed in considerable pain.
