For almost two months life has consisted of walking, finding the albergue, registering, unpacking sleeping bag, taking a shower, doing washing by hand, finding food, eating, journalling, blogging, talking, looking at maps and sleeping. But life has gone on in the rest of the world. The All Blacks thrashed the Poms. Iraq is on the verge of a civil war. 183 are condemned to death in Egypt. Spain has a new king. And the rubbish collectors are on strike in Lugo.
Destination: Lugo (where Tessa had her arm put in a plaster cast on the last trip and we saw none of the old Roman city! This time we walked round the walls)
Cumulative Distance: 1,112/812km
188km for the girls to go to 1,000
Weather: cooled down to 25 degrees and another thunderstorm breaks when we are in the cathedral being awed by the paintings on the ceiling and listening to the organ
