Near Tosantos look right and back to see the caves. Once occupied by hermits. Most famous is San Caprasio- Patron Saint of Via Francigena. Also has been used as shelter for pilgrims.

Refreshing drinks after a hot day! This is Kat on the left. We have known her for twenty minutes. I had just realized we would not make it to the next ATM machine and had only 5 euros left after paying for the albergue. She gave us $50 euro and said pay it back at next town/ATM. Pilgrims are so giving and trusting.

We are so Mad/disappointed. We were told wait for 2nd shift for dinner at the only restaurant in town. Two hours later everything was gone and we ended up with dry bocadillos. We are getting tired of bocadillos.
