Villar de Mazarife to Astorga

Day Forty One. 32.0 K., *19.9 Mi.

Written on June 9, 2014.

*I mentioned in an earlier post that I am relying more on my pedometer than the accuracy of the mileage in my guidebook. Today we saw a woman with a spray paint can painting yellow arrows on the road in the opposite direction of the already established arrows….she sprayed silver paint over the yellow arrows already in place. I will no longer make a note that I am using the mileage from my pedometer.

I have heard many times on the Camino that you always see the same person twice. I am not sure how many times we have seen Steve Allen from Michigan but many days have passed.

Vern and Steve Allen.

Vern had just stepped outside of a bar in Hospital de Orbigo to speak to Angel on the phone when Steve walked by. Everyone has a “story” of challenge and triumph….Steve is no exception. He had been dealing with a strained leg when he had devised a system to elevate his leg in an Albergue.
