Today is our second rest day. Although we keep walking for sightseeing (almost 1/2 the distance of a typical walk day), it is nice to not have a backpack for that walk.
We did not have a set agenda for today. I decided to use the hotel spa in the morning. At ten we met for breakfast. After that we all went our separate ways to explore the city. Some to the museum and guided walks and other to explore the back alleys.
I discovered the farmers market and shopping near plaza mayor.
Pat and Vandana ran into our German friends during their cathedral tour. We all met for lunch and enjoyed some donner kebabs.
Two of Sitara’s friend Emily and Stephanie joined us. Stephanie also brought her friend Noah. Going forward now there will be 8 of us.
A warm welcome to our 3 new companions.

We had our last opportunity to listen to the organ and singing at the cathedral. Here is our goodbye to Leon as we leave early in the morning.
How excited for Sitara to have her friends join as well!!! Now you are the Family of 8 from US!! I can only imagine the wonderful things you saw at the farmer’s market! Love all the photos! Thank you for taking the time to post them!! We love seeing them each day!!!
Thanks. It’s fun having new kids to pick on.
Family of 8! You all look so tan. I think this is the final stage of the Camino, right? Can’t believe time has passed so quickly and probably so slowly simultaneously. Much love to all of you (and especially the newbies)!
I was wondering – do they have “organic” and “non-organic” produce or is it everything is organic by default.
Now that there will be two groups of four, the “turbo” group can arrive early at destinations and scout for best places to stay and eat.
Nice to see the restful and energized team. Good luck for the next part of the journey. More the merrier..
got my fix for the day … you all look ready to get on the road again
They say, more the merrier, so keep enjoying the rest of the walk with more laughters, now you have more youngsters,
Great Pics guys.. enjoy!
