... to walk with me. I'm a bit funny about this now as I like to walk alone. With my Scott of the Antarctic beardy thing I look a wreck so was surprised that anyone would want to walk with me...she was that desperate. God turned the tap on again and the cold water defeated everything we've got. Holly only has pink trainers and normal socks. So many blisters she is bleeding constantly and walking with wet feet - she is in a terrible state. Every ...
... the rain started - torrential and only another 10k to go. Absolutely drenched (Flo/Bea/Jo - thank goodness for the dry bag and all the other bags!) But in between the swearing, the mad singing to myself and drinking more water (the last thing i wanted but the Australians say I must and I'm coming round to them - a bit) I did have a D&M thought.

Spoiler Alert - it's day 4 and I'm starting to ramble. Apologies! So last night's Albergue de Peregrinos was everything my friend Crash (Lander) promised.

Clearly this, and being told to be quiet at 8pm as others were trying to sleep, was concerning to some. I see the problem - some of these people, with strange kit and ...
... but round the back it is lovely. Very clean, calm and build around a courtyard. Kitchen, washing machines etc. My smalls drying in the sunshine beside those of the other pilgrims! More pilgrims arrived - young, old but French seems to be the universal language fortunately. All friendly. Made a cup of tea but rather than waste one of my precious teabags I used one I found. A Frenchman who has walked 2,400 km in the past 4 months made me a cup of water. I ...
