Day 9: Small villages are just that.

Today I started from the beautiful Afroza albergue (heated floors & dryer after a wet day are SO good.) I had met dear Sarah from Finland who asked to share a room with me. We were so overjoyed that it was only two to a room & that it was so wonderfully clean, we were estatic together. She is a sweetie, & I think I will probably run into her quite often along the way...

I woke up fairly on time and was out the door by 6:45am. On the road it was fairly cold but sunny once the sun rose. It was a beautiful walk from Azofra to Santo Domingo de la Calzada... I didn't stay there too long although I wanted to. I was able to see the great cathedral, but only the lobby & a quick prayer in the small section opened for such.

I was hoping to see a medic [about my knees] but ended up not wanting to wait around and moved on as I still had 11km to get to Redecilla de Camino.

Got there in plenty of time. Was in the albergue before 2, and hung around. Not a big place, so there wasn't much to see. In the guide books they write about this incredible baptismal font but when the church was opened, there was no sign of it...

It's now only 8:40pm. There isn't anything really to do. I'm really starting to hate albergues...

Oh well, bottom bunk happiness (with power outlet for charging right next to it, yay!)

Time to plug into the iPod... G'night.
