Left Cacabelos at 0800. Walked 2 km to Pieros. Wonderful cafe for toast and tea. The music was inspiring to walk to. Took the longer scenic route which was through the vineyards. I just can't capture the beauty and scents in words. It is tough walking with the up and downs of the hills. I am a true prairie girl. We took a slow pace to enjoy the …
I can already hear you saying "not another rest day" This was a planned where the bus days were forced on us through circumstances. That's my story, anyway. Starting tomorrow we have eight days straight walking and it will be taxing. I've just been sitting in a street cafe watching the pilgrims come in and knowing how they felt.

Our hotel here is one of the most basic that we have stayed in - but with scenery like we have, we certainly don't want to waste time in a room. Also there is no wifi in the hotel, but Amr has found a bar that has it, so we ...
