Leon here we come

Our goal for today was 19 km to Mansila, a walled city in the outskirts of Leon. We decided to take the advice by many of the pilgrims who have done this in the past as well as our book to take the bus and avoid the last 20km of concrete jungle and highway walking to Leon. The team Camino was excited about this decision as it would give us 2 rest days. Sitara was also very excited as two of her friends will be joining us in Leon for the Camino.

We only needed 19 km so decided to leave an hour later than usual (@ 7:15). It was an overcast and misty morning. We missed our usual sun rise but as Sitara puts it our best Meseta morning that reminded her of Monteverde in Costa Rica.

We again enjoyed our picnic breakfast at one of the rest area along the path.

We enjoyed our juice and coffee at the next town before moving on to Mansila.

We arrived in Mansila around noon, had our lunch, walked around town and are now waiting for the bus for Leon.
