Day Five

Last night's dinner at the local senior center put us in a happy mood. Paloma, who was cook, waitress, bottle washer and hostess, took care of us like family, and sent us off with hugs, kisses, and a new map of the Camino Primitivo. The dinner, three courses plus drinks, was a total of $25 for both of us.

Here's a link to all the photos so far:

Another 18km day today...a long slow climb for about a third of that, then rolling hills and ridges. A short side trip took us to the monastery of Obono, which was abandoned, but quite lovely. We stopped in Campiello for a snack, and made it to Borres in time for Spanish lunch. 12 Euros for more food than three people could eat. So much for losing weight on this adventure.

Today is decision day. We can either bet on good weather and hike the high trail past a series of abandoned Medieval pilgrimage hostels, or stick to the modern route that is lower and safer.

The weather report looking pretty good--cloudy in the morning, clearing by 2pm, with only a 20% chance of rain. We're going for it
