We changed our plans for today so we could meet my brothers in a larger city (our original goal was Boneta, an additional 5km). Also, everyone was tired from the grind yesterday. We don’t know if the brothers will make it here today or tomorrow (the train is arriving in Santiago at 8 pm).
Since we only had plans to go 15 km, we started late, around 8 am after a light breakfast.
Most of the walking today felt like country side walking with nice views.
I should introduce you to my “tomato” team!
After breakfast or breaks when we are ready to go, I make sure my senior team has started walking (as I am responsible for bringing up the rear). Then I look at my young team and say to my tomatoes, “We are leaving.” They in unison respond, “We will ketchup!” Drum roll please!
Melide is famous for Pulpo (octopus). Some of the team are hungry for it. The rest of us just want a good dinner. We will find out later if my brothers can join us tonight, otherwise we will see them tomorrow.
