VillaMayor to Torres Del Rio

Dutch alberge turned out be special with wonderful meditation at night. The morning view from the balcony was wonderful.

Our goal for the day was about 20K.
Morning view of the town was beautiful.

The next town was 12km away with no water or food. At least, according to all the sources. Half way down the road to our surprise we discover a food truck middle of nowhere. Wow

We made it to the first village, Los Arcos around noon for lunch.

At 12:30 as we were leaving for the next stop it started to pour. This time it was full fledged rain for almost 45 minutes walking through rocks and mud. With the rain and wind no one took break and we just kept walking.

It was a good day for Vandana. Sakkar had a rough day with multiple blisters. Sitara’s heal was sore but she was again our leader and made it to Torres Del Rio as we were leaving Los Arcos. Pat enjoyed the rain and kept her steady pace. I was oblivious to every thing and being in the moment having a grand day. The Camino finds a way to test us all every day and yet it carries us through for another day stronger and more resilient.

    Wow! You are all awesome in meeting the challenges of this long and adventurous path! I love seeing the pictures and seeing the villages and countryside through your blog. The prayer of Saint Francis is one of my personal favorites as well. What a fantastic journey!

      Hi from Vetosa, where we are stopping for fresh pastries and cafe con leche. This is Pat from Enayet’s I-phone. It’s 9:30 and we have walked 7 kilometers. About 10 more to go today. Please give our blog address to Debbie for me, I didn’t have her email address. Ronny, also, if you can. It is fresh, quaint, gorgeous here. You would love this!
