Amazing pilgrims, can anyone identify the villages in these photos? The first two are between Astorga and Foncebadón and the time stamps are just under an hour apart. The last two are between Foncebadón and Ponferrada and probably the same village because the time stamps are only 15 minutes apart. Thank you!

yes, no. 3 in Riego de Ambrós after Acebo. There are many collapsed houses between Foncebadón and Riego de Ambrós.

Perhaps the original files have GPS data embedded within them (one copy you submitted doesn't but editing may have removed exinfo data). Go to https://verexif.com/en/ and upload the files.
Thanks but unfortunately my camera doesn't have this data (although it's great in most other ways!).

3 & 4 definetly Riego de Ambrós, the balcony village. And I think I have seen those collapsed doors on the entrance of Foncebadón as far as I remember.

Thank you both!

Riego de Ambrós always reminds me of what El Acebo used to look like before the camino onslaught. Riego does have its fair share of fixed-up homes (probably used in summers), but doesn’t seem to have bought into the camino business model. Wonder why, not that I’m complaining about it mind you.

Once again you are all amazing. When I am walking especially after about 10 days or so I am just a space cadet, walking looking enjoying not having a coherent thought in my head, just smelling the coffee and the roses, listening to the wind and the birds, enjoying the scenery and when I see a cool looking old falling apart house I think that is a cool and old falling apart house and I am sure I will see another one pretty soon. Just like the cool, old horreos. There will be another nice one any minute now. I usually am only concentrating when I am looking for a place to sit down to rest and eat something or to find a secluded spot to do my thing.

This is how I am, most of the time. Sometimes I have seemingly very coherent thoughts in my head, but they don't last long, and they don't involve filing away detailed information on the itinerary. My memories afterward are equally scattered.

I have conflicting theories - either I am NOT living in the moment with mindful awareness of my surroundings, or in fact I AM living in the moment but my experience is more internal! That is the sort of conundrum I could consider for hours on my next walk!

I found this rock just past the turn out of Riego (July 2015). I couldn't persuade Peg to obey. Later she said she was sorry.

Good luck with that one. Just reading it makes my head spin a little.;)
