... 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. My routine is becoming to rest every hour and a half, take off my shoes and change socks at lunch and just trudge along. It is light until 9:30pm so I,m pretty sure that I will have enough ...

After yesterday's early stop, I had so many thoughts about MY schedule. I had two choices....find cash and shorten the next few legs or use my remaining cash to get to Ourense by bus. First, the walk today was wonderful. A very short, steep uphill followed by miles of downhill. It was so beautiful. Lots of heather like flowers and most of the walk was on a gravel road. Everything was beautiful. So, I arrive in Laza and ask for the bank. ...
