I have left San Juan de la Calzada, a small village of 20 inhabitants (now 18 apparently), where I spent a funny afternoon/ evening chatting with people from France and drinking many beers with my pilgrim friend Andreas, Anais, Susana, David and Marta. I listed their names because it’s almost a miracle that after so many
I remember their names!!!
. We have a very funny evening in a cosy auberge (see picture), which plays nice old pop and rock music (specially my so loved Bruce Springsteen ). Back to tips: the way from Belorado was not as terrible as described. Just the beginning (uphill but short) and the end (no shadow) we’re a bit tough. Be sure to have breakfast in Belorado as bars on the way are closed until 10.
Finding more English speakers (from US and Ireland) than before. Still easy to find a place to sleep in the spot or by calling the same day. I would advise the later to be sure.
Today I’m taking a rest in Altapuerca before my last day of walking to Burgos.
I feel I need to be on my own a day to reflect about the experience so far. I find it so enriching. Perhaps I will restart soon from Burgos to the end, as my holidays has been cancelled due to Covid.
