Day 10: A night of paranoia & truck stop towns...

So, my bro put the fear of gangrene in me yesterday (did not sleep well, & it did not help some distinctive pilgrims woke up at bloody 5am after being the last to go to bed) so this morning I promptly started @ 6:30am to Beldorado and was immediately seen by the doctor when I arrived at the Urgencias. He cleaned up my knee with Bactotran (I think similar to Polysporin) & betadine... He thinks its ok, & suggested I put the antibacterial stuff on for @ least the next 3-4 days.

So, at the same town I bought some sandwich material & some extra bandages & made it to Villafranca de Montes by about 1:30pm. A good 25km today...

The village has basically the highway as the main road with two bars. The better looking restaurant was also a truck stop that fed hungry drivers all day.

Did I mention how much I'm beginning to hate albergues? And once again there's nothing to do until dinner (tonight @ 8:30pm!) Don't want to sleep, otherwise can't sleep through the night.


More writing....

Thankfully, I wasn't on the floor... or sleeping next to pantless guy.
