After a not so great night of sleep in the monastery (uncomfortable old bed, the sound of snoring) we were off to Belorado.
The morning was beautiful and the walk was easy.
The first break reminded me that someone should make a “Cats of the Camino” book or Instagram account. Maybe this already exists. Probably a third of the towns I’ve been in, I’ve seen random cats hanging out on the street, on rooftops, etc.
We got to the albergue before it opened and were some of the first in line to get beds. Though we asked for bottom bunks, we were denied and had to take top bunks, in case old people happened to show up. Had we shown up later and they wanted to fill their beds, we would have gotten bottom bunks. The lady said I should do the walk in July when the old people don’t walk if I actually wanted to be comfortable…great advice. So I’ll have to deal with my fear of falling off a top bunk tonight. Then I got yelled at for wearing a t-shirt in the pool. As if many pilgrims pack swimming suits. After that I got to take a cold shower since the guy before me took forever. It’s the most expensive albergue yet. Go figure. So today’s not my favorite day on the Camino, but tomorrow is a new day. 🙂
