Palas de Rei to Arzua

Day Seventy Five. 17.9 Miles, 28.9 Kilometers.

Written on July 3, 2012.

Jose Miguel, Consuelo, and their daughter, Ana.

I walked for awhile with Ana, a young woman who lives in Spain and teaches English in a secondary school. Her parents have walked the Camino de Santiago in years past. She is joining them for a walk this year. At one point today she looked behind us and said I will see you later. All of the students are coming! I stepped up to higher ground and started the movie function on my camera. The students walk until they meet their support vehicle and then take a break. There are approximately 250 students from two schools.

There were several villages to pass through today. I enjoy walking through the villages. There is always something interesting to look at.

When I asked the farmer if it was ok to take a photo, he turned the bull around so he faced the camera!

It was a long walk to Arzua. Everyone we see is either on their way to take a nap or talking about how tired they are. On the way to dinner we met a couple from Ashland, Oregon. They have walked through various sections of five Caminos. We realized that we live 2-1/2 hours from each other. I am sure that we will see them in Santiago.
