Yet ANOTHER bocadillo – this was especially dry but the beer was cold!!!
Spent two nights in Castrojeriz. This is where I came down with diarrhea. This is Tippi from South Africa. We run into her much later and find out she came down with the diarrhea the next night.
Only a short posting of pics today. From Hontanas to Castrojeriz. Actually, these last three pictures are supposed to be the first three. Got the site messed up.
Hot track leaving Hontanas
nice country road with a bit of shade
