We were able to navigate through the town due to street lights, but soon we were on a trail with other pilgrims in the dark. All of us were motivated to make good progress while it is very pleasant and peaceful. As you can see from some of the pictures how dark it was, I was able to play with my camera to get the pictures ( I could not get the faces while getting the silhouettes).
Sun rise once again was magnificent. It is so wonderful to be out in the nature and witness one of God’s free gifts that we get everyday.
Today’s selfie is a group selfie. You will have to figure out who is who!
The next town was 10 km away and by 9 am the sun was beating down on us from behind. As Sakkar pointed out, the only shade we had was our own shadow. Fortunately there was a cool breeze pushing on us as we climbed forward.
Wide open fields were beautiful and an occasional tree was a welcome site and gathering ground for pilgrims. We saw the most number of pilgrims so far, probably because we could see them in front and behind just continue to walk.
We finally reached Curuena town that had a golf course and all the buildings that looked similar. We decided to continue on without stoping in town.
Finally when we reached the top of this hill with some shade, we all crashed down to enjoy some food and drink. We could feel that we were close to done but needed one more break before finishing for the day!
On the way to town we saw this factory cleaning and packaging the potatoes.
We are settled in our alberge now. It is amazing how a good night sleep gets you ready for another day! But for now, it is about relaxing, having a nice meal and then a good nights rest!
