Mon 28 Sep - Day 14: Villambistia to Atapuerca 24km
267km walked. 518km left to walk.
Our fantastic albergue San Roque in Villambistia. Most of our non-sleeping time here was spent on that outdoor terrace to the left.
Breakfast nook. A small table outside the locked bar area with seating for two. It felt a bit like an American motel breakfast; crap coffee and a severe overload of sugar.
It turned out that out of our group of 6, only the oldest (me) and the youngest (Sophie) carried our own backpacks today. Hmmm...
1936. 300 people, objecting to Franco's dictatorship were killed here.
The road to Santiago de Compostela goes on forever... it seems.
We finished the night by demolishing two bottles of vino Tinto out on the patio of
the albergue. Yes, we picked those up at the local supermercado where I went to the facilities and the manager asked me to come back in there to... Check out the little green frogs at the bottom of a plant that was in the corner. Which I did. And yes, I poked the cute little green frog and he was real all right. The local in general are very very friendly and mostly funny people.
Ben, the always thirsty one, was for once first in bed. Maybe a bad day today as he will probably be back in form tomorrow.
