Day Thirty Five. 27.8 K., 17.3 Mi. (my pedometer).
Written on June 3, 2014.
We stayed at Hostal Santiago in Carrion de los Condes. It was a beautiful room and we received great service! In the morning as we were leaving we noticed that the way out was through the bar and not through the gate. If you love your coffee in the morning like Vern and Angel this works well.
Today we are walking on the Calzada Romana, also known as the Calzada de los Peregrinos.
Most of the walk today is on the Calzada Romana.
From the first moment we started walking on April 30th Angel has been helping people from all over the world. She will observe something out of place or that needs adjustment on their backpacks. She is good about sensing whether the time or place is appropriate to approach the Pilgrim. She has helped many people! Today she received a kiss for her efforts.

Yesterday I heard someone walking away from Angel saying very loudly, “perfect, perfect”!
Today Chris asked me if I had seen the couple on bicycles who just got married. My first thought was, “this is pretty cool, people know that I'm writing a blog and now are giving me tips”!
