Why didn't I realise it before -- my morale is directly connected to how good a sleep I have had! And now i am hitting the anti-flams at night I am sleeping much better. Even had a room to ourselves last night - a bed ea with sheets-stayed in v elegant 19C Manor House turned Albergue - NZ$45.
Quick taxi ride for 10kms to get ahead of Jeff then walking in gentle rural area (see photo) -hills ringing with cow bells and smell of cow s*** in the air :)
Head down and climbed up into Galician mountain area - very picturesque but west coast climate so jacket and hat on again. Jeff carried my pack the last few kms - Tx J.
Now in bed with 100 people in one room hoping for good sleep. Only one snoring softly so far.
