The bloody church bells, tolled all night on the hour and the half hour just above our head! So hugged the hospitalero (volunteer warden) goodbye as he was such a genuine guy helping the peregrinos and getting them to slow their Camino down so it didn't finish too soon. They say 1/3 is for the body, 1/3 is for the mind and 1/3 for the soul - we are almost 1/3 but I think I am working on the physical still.
Bussed then walked 5kms after lunch but - shhhh - we are at another church run, mattresses on floor, communal dinner Albergue ( but old house this time, low doorways, whitewashed walls, sloping wood floor). El hospitalero turned people away who paid to get their bags carried, so I am keeping quiet about catching the bus. Will have to walk the first 5 kms tomorrow as only 190 people live in this village so Santiago (his name) will soon learn if I catch the bus! Great news - no one is allowed to get up before 7am so no plastic bag russling at 530am.
My challenge tonight is to sleep all night again with a makeshift pillow
