Everyone was feeling good in Portomarin after successfully completing our route. Wine, beer and (otc) pain pills made for a lot of laughter and even a little singing “Unchained Melody” at dinner. I don’t think anyone suggested it, but everyone seems to be maintaining a ‘no whining’ policy.
A difficult mostly uphill walk today led to another partial taxi ride. A couple of steel rods in the spine can make even the best of intentions irrelevant. 13 km got us into a beautiful Albergue/hotel before 2 pm. Plenty of time to siesta, do laundry, write blogs, and appreciate a perfect early fall afternoon.
