For me actually a bit of a fun day, hiking in the rain. Shhh don’t tell Beth!
At our second village Terradillos de los Templarios stop to warm up a bit. Wonderful hot chocolate. Ended up it was fresh made chocolate pudding! Novel idea and useful this winter!
Outside Sahagún we find a old church.
Wonderfully good and hot lentil soup while dodging some rain.
Last several days has been mostly all the same -farm fields. Sunflowers, wheat, a little corn, a few grapevines and on and on!
From what I can tell today we crossed over the half way mark. Beth says we are ahead of schedule but I wonder. (Beth actually says we are ON schedule.)
It is nice to see signs that have less than 400 km to go. There have been instances that we see a sign stating 472 km to Santiago, we hike 7 or 8 km and see another sign saying 477 km to Santiago. We think they had a bungee cord measurement device.
Lodging for the night and they are packed! Donotivo.
We all sing a special song written for peregrinos to the tune of LaBamba. We have the lyrics but have to translate. All the Spanish speaking people laughed at the lyrics!
