Day Forty Nine. 17.8 Miles, 28.6 Kilometers.
Written on June 7, 2012.
Early in the morning we passed quickly through two villages. At the second village we met four Americans. They had just graduated from Sonoma State University, not far from where we lived in Sonoma County.
Soon after we left that village we walked into millions of small bugs/flies. They were in everone’s eyes, mouths and hair. Everyone’s but Vern’s. He was prepared.

I noticed many people checking him out, but like myself, I’m sure they wished they had brought theirs.
Many miles later we saw our friend, Dominic. We haven’t seen him since St. John Pied-de-Port, France. He is looking well and is making his way to Belorado to volunteer at an Albergue, (Gite).
Vern, Dominic, and Me.

Little has changed in Viana since Midieval Pilgrims walked through its ancient streets. Viana has an old part of town and a more modern area with bars and shops. It was a great place to take a break!
