Palais de Rei! Palace of Kings

28 KM today, and the walk was beautiful. The weather was the best ever: slightly overcast, with only a hint of sun at the end, perfect for walking.

The gift of pilgrimage, the el camino, came at the end of the evening, when the table included five Canadians--Mary Ellen, Dale, Peggy, and Al--plus a wonderful woman who read scripture earlier in the week from Canada, and the Kiwis--Jackie and Sue--and Lee from England. The conversation was alive around the table as we talked about Canada, the States, sex (all part of the camino, especially around certain farm animals on the way, OH MY), and the effects of being pilgrims for this time. There was never a lull in the conversation as each person wanted and had their say. Incredible that we all found 0urselves in a bond of friendship, heart to heart, soul to soul, that kept us all engaged. The miracle? We have only met each other throughout the pilgrimage.

Panic has set in as we realize there are three days left of this fantastic pilgrimage.

Bien camino!

Pilgrim peace, Brett

Please, please, please tell me that you took a camera. Dinner sounds great.

Next stop Melide (14KM) or Arzua (28.8)? 67.3 KM left! Be careful - one site
doesn't show anything between Melide and Ribadiso. There is a private albergue in Santa Irene that is very nice (right side of road just past the very small chapel, which is probably closed.)

PdR - Ribadiso 25.7KM
Ribadiso - Santa Irene 19.5KM
Santa Irene - Santiago 22.1KM

The good news is that you're traveling downhill (550m to 225m) and with only one or two significant hills, one being shortly after Ribadiso. (85m).

What do the Eucalyptus look like?

Bon Camino!
