the first walking day

having survived the first walking day. i thought I´d take things easy and cover some 10 to 15 km. i walked 23.4 km today! from leon to a village called villa de mazarife, north of the city.

sometimes i walked alone and some other times, in the company of other pilgrims. each one has an interesting story to tell.

oh, the joy of travel.

yesterday, i had dinner with two ladies staying at the same convent – people are so friendly. the restaurant is right by the grand Cathedra of Leon. by 8.30, the sun was still shining cheerfully. I enjoyed a hearty pilgrim dinner, the spectacular view and the ringing of church bell.

now i am relaxing in the law of the hostal.
