3 June: Calzada to Villanueva de Campean

I have spent far too long trying to upload pictures…..have to admit defeat today and add them tomorrow when we get somewhere with a better connection. Pity, because the post revolves around the pictures!!

Pond pic 7:20am

2x arrow pics 8:16am Digger left us a message which we didn’t see until we had already tried the direct path in the hopes that there would be no water.

Dirt field pic 9:17am

Hay field pic 9:20am

Horse pic 10:15am Look who came down the path as we were taking our first break. Pedro on Peregrin.

Horse going pic 10:30am And off they went.

El Cubo pic 11:15am 21km done. Time to decide whether or not to push on for another 13. 

Bar pic 11:32am We will do it after some tortilla de patatas and a juice (and a blat round the village finding more food to take with us because we’ll end up in a wee place with no shop.

Town hall pic 12:08 A bit more to eat in the shade.

Italiano pic 12:39pm Italiano joins us. Digger suggests he’s going to let us go on ahead and asks us to save him a bed……but he keeps up!

Hay maker pic 1:40pm

Selfie pic 2:23pm selfie. It’s getting really hot!

Marker pic 2:59pm We make it to the village. We have run out of water. The last hour was hard. No-one complained. Got a message from Daddy that he’s in Guangzhou and his flight has been delayed for two hours due to thunderstorms. We’re frying, but no one wishes for thunderstorms.

Strava pic 3:07pm We arrive. We drink. We claim beds. We get stamps in our credentials. We drink some more. We sit. We unpack. We take showers. It was a long hot day.

Albergue pic 4:24pm Washing is done. Two blisters are attended to. All feet are checked. Journals are written. Blog post typed. Cards played.

Inside bar pic 5:23pm Found. One bar. With hot cooked food. We have emergency rations, but are all ravenous and happy to eat a full meal.
