One of the highlights today was watching a dog herd a bunch of cattle to a barn. It seemed like they were coming right at us and they sported impressive horns.
Because we are now within 100 K of Santiago many more pilgrims are joining us on The Way. This is a bit of an irritant because they tend to talk loudly or take up the whole path. They also look clean and well groomed, unlike us. No tanned legs, either! Also bugging us today are the number of cyclists scooting by at great speed seemingly from nowhere. We have to practice patience and grace.
It was a long, hard slog today even though it was only about 24 K and our feet hurt.
We celebrated the 100 K concrete marker by enjoying some sangria. Our first on this trip. We are now about 90 K away from Santiago. Five more days of walking.
We have reached the 100 K marker, a significant milestone.
