May 21, 2014 Lugar do Corgo to Ponte de Lima

Nearly all of my 14.5 km (9 mi) walk was in the rain. It was almost mystical at times. Arrived at noon only to discover that the albuerge didn’t open till 4 pm. They’re very austere–no blanket, sheets, or pillow. This is pure, raw pilgrim style–I’m not complaining! I’m using the WI-FI in the restaurant next door.

The pics show the difference between last night and today, as well as of the town as one enters with music piped in all around to welcome you.

    That’s quite a fancy army barracks. You must feel right at home! 🙂
