Brutal day: started w/36deg cold, but sunny getting all the way to 46 deg (Eddie loves the cold). Walked 14 miles, and felt it (am not yet in a groove, but am getting there; maybe another week. Everything aches, but I expected that. The good news is that we gained another day on our itinerary.
We walked again on a no-shoulder highway to avoid yesterday’s mud. Trucks are fabulously polite, changing lanes to avoid us–impressive. We theorize that the highway is a better semblance of the Via Regia than some zig-zag route through ag fields.
Eddie again has penetrated the ecclesiastical network and landed a nearly new Catholic School / Nuns’ Residence (same building) for overnight lodging and meals. One young nun speaks English perfectly and she as well as the Mother Superior are most hospitable. They’re all astounded by our goals! Six-o’clock mass after a scrumptious meal rounded out our day.
At the center of Lancut is the Castle, one of the most beautiful aristocratic residences in Poland dating back to the early 16 hundreds. We passed by (see the pic) but had no time to visit!
