WOW! I had sunshine in the morning as I left the hostel. It was AWESOME!!!!
I got out at 7:15. Here are a few shots as I climbed a small mountain (see above diagram)
This is just before the mountain.
Morning mist rising.
Really long shadows at 7:15am… Starting to climb the mountain.
I made it to the top and was rewarded with some amazing views.
Saw some clouds…
About 2 hours later it became overcast. We have been having a lot rain. As you can see below, the rivers are quite high.
I think these guys were eating some “magic mushrooms” and captured their experience with this painting 🙂 Notice the arrow on the curb… it should be yellow.
As I walked thru the valley I noticed that this is the first place where they are using irrigation.
This guy is during the Camino with his donkey. He sleeps in the cart.
With a couple of hours left, I started walking along this irrigation canal.
I met this girl from Transylvania (for real). We had lunch on this dock.
This is where I had lunch.
- It was an amazing day. Starting the day with sunshine is OK with me.
- My hostel was run the “soup nazi” 🙂 He was really grumpy, yelled in Spanish and a million signs telling you what NOT to do. It was pretty weird.
- People are still incredibly friendly.
