Day 33: Palas de Rey


View Deb's Camino de Santiago de Compostela on Deb Godley's travel map.

I've just met Vittoria (Italy) and Kim (Netherlands et al) and we're sitting in a bar in Gonzar having breakfast. When you ask Kim where she's from, she asks "in which sense?" - she was born in Africa, has both Dutch and Australian passports and just moved from Brazil to Dublin.

Walking with Kim and Victoria. Kim works for Linked-in and Victoria is a lawyer. We've been chatting and exchanging recipes. Currently in line to order something to drink...

Kim & Victoria are planning on single rooms at a hostel, while I am staying in a 6-bed room in an albergue. I just had a great shower with a rain shower head (!)

I meeting them for lunch at 3. Here's a picture from the last rest stop.

At least two of my roommates here speak English, so that will be nice later.

More later. This looks like a nice little town.

I know, another church, but it was literally the only recommended see here. It's a big enough place to have a Museo or something, but only the church and some pilgrim shops to go with the farmacia and supermarcados. And lots of bars, of course.

I've been getting spoiled, I was going to complain that I can't charge my phone while lying on my bed, but this place even has soap and paper towels in the bathroom, a rare treat for an albergue, plus the afore mentioned rain shower head. Anyway, the bathroom is better than most, but I do like to lie in bed with the phone charging, rather than plug the phone in overnight by the door.

Had an enjoyable meal with Kim & Victoria, then we walked all over the central area, which didn't take long. We've agreed to meet at 6:30am for tomorrow's walk, and we may run into each other later.

I hadn't eaten since lunch at 3, so I ventured out looking for a snack and a nice place to sit outside. I found a small shop selling fabulous strawberries, so bought a bit of dark chocolate to eat with them. Yummy.

My fingers are red from the berries.
