So, I'm finally able to post on here, we'll see if I can actually poat it. My first day I met a nice French Canadian woman who walkes @ about the same pace as me. We walked together most of the first day and most of the second day. She was quiye interesting, she trained kids who were learning to fly gliders.

We reached Ponferrada at around 6:15pm and Cheryl and I reached our hotel about ...
... Sarria is the starting point for pilgrims who do the last 100ks of the Camino so they can get their completion certificate. So there are more pilgrims here than anywhere else. It means that our hikes until we hit Santiago will be busy with people rushing to get to the next stop.
