We take a rest day. Sort of.
We start hiking. It is drizzling. The staff at the albergue recommend another albergue up the road. We hike in the drizzlyness.
When we arrive at our designated stop, we have a coffee. And decide to keep hiking. We hike another 5 kilometers, then take a break at a bar (restaurant). A steady stream of poncho-clad pilgrims walks by, drenched in the rain.
One thing I am learning is that public albergues open at 1pm and you have to be present to get a spot. At 12:45, we move across the street to wait in line at the albergue which quickly fills up (there are 18 beds and it is a small town)
Right place at the right time, I guess.
