... Finally fell asleep as others were getting up. Marvellous! I've got to avoid the snoring Frog from now on... But a miracle, the landlady had turned the heating on to a setting just above 'Extremely Hot'. I needed another shower in the morning but more importantly all my kit was dry. This really was marvellous. But it was so hot, I had to get out. So left without breakfast, tea, anything (Flo will understand). ....into the pouring, ...
A short blog today and not too much D&M - so you win twice! Crash told me today would be memorable...and it was. It was probably the most physically gruelling walk/day I've ever had. Was absolutely cream crackered...although amazing how a welcoming bar, with a fire, a beer and a packet of peculiar looking crisps is reviving me now. Starting walking at 8:30 and headed up the mountain. Very long uphill walk. Got to the top at about 3,000 ft. Felt pleased with ...

But got to an amazing albergue today, run by David. They will feed me, house me, wash all my clothes all for a donation of my choice when I leave. Lovely people although some noisy Australians have arrived. What was I saying about getting on with everyone... More tomorrow! Love to all. ...
... But it was also necessary as from now on I get chucked out of my albergues at 8am so no more lie ins for me! Walked uphill and then when I got to the top somehow I had to go up again...and again. I have now discovered that the next four days walking are all up. Splendid! But enjoyed a sandwich my hotel landlady had made for me. Quite a straightforward walk, past some genuine pilgrim graffiti- you could tell this as entirely missing the usual sexual ...
