In the morning we went up with the cable car to the Parador de Fuente De (900m). When we got at the top it was 4 degrees and foggy.

We also happened to be staying with people who all spoke English, usually it was quite the mix of languages with varying degrees of Spanish competency in common. So it was nice, we shared wine and swapped Camino stories.
