We´ve made it to Navarette and have left the rain. Now it´s the heat that we´re dealing with!!! Sorry to say we´ve become some of those peregrinos that get up early to beat the heat- not the bed rush!!!Albergues still are not full. We stayed in the albergue parroquial in Viana last night and there were 8 of us there- capacity is something loke 20. The hopitaleras were wonderful and made a fantastic dinner. When we arrived they told me there was a municiple albergues up the road that had more services, but we were welcome in the parroquial albergue- it was more like a home and we´d have a communal dinner. I highly recommend it. We also had a great albergue almost to ourselves in Lorca- the one on the right side of the road going out of town- Albergue de Lorca de Jose Ramon. The owners girl friend is from North Carolina and practically caters to you. She showed us how to use Skype and we called home after setting up a Skype account- it was free. Definitely look into Skype of you want to call the US from Spain- ATT cards don´t work well.

So happy to hear all is going well, and happy to hear there are beds!! I keep telling people that Spain is THE place to go! The people are simply put, wonderful! (to say nothing of the countryside)

Buen Camino

I too, stayed in the parroquial albergue in Viana last year and it was wonderful! We had paella and it was the place where I met some of my most memorable friends on the Camino. The next one is Grañon - I don´t need to say anything about that!
Buen Camino,

Hola Deirdre,

The albergues you stopped in are a very good choices. I suppose the next would be Tosantos, wouldn't be? Quiet albergues, in quiet towns, with free beds even now.

Buen Camino,

Javier Martin

I agree, Javier, and even now in Leon I can say we have not had any problems finding albergues the entire trip. I really think it pays to stay in the smaller towns.
