... Germans, English, Australians and Spaniards here tonight. I expect that more will still come. Tomorrow is a long day...27k. I have reserved a bed in a private Alberque so I don't need to rush.

That will give me an overnight there and back to Madrid. Or perhaps, I will get my compostela in Santiago and go one night to Vigo to see the ocean.
