greetings peregrino´s, the rain had finally stopped, and i arrived in braga yesterday, it was just to beautiful of a town to leave. so i stayed the night at the alberque at the convent, 20 euro for a beautiful room all to yourself, and great breakfast. i left barcelos this morning at 10am and fiñished the 33 km by 5, i was very surprised to find a New alberques here, right acroos the mediveal bridge. 3 euro and free internet, im the only pilgrim here tonight, it is open from 1700~2200. Very nice! i will send out info, on any alberques open or new on my journey, should arrive in santiago near the 25th or so.....buen camino.....just a note..as i was walking today from barcelos, i really missed the camino francis, i happen to like small, old towns, simple people etc...it works for me.....i was taken back on how many very nice homes are here throughtout this walk today, and a bit too much asphalt for me....but i stayed focused on this ~being a very new and different camino for me, and once i saw this lovely town of ponte de lima, my thoughts and heart were brought back to the here and now....where it should be........buen camino to all.
