Left Leon early around 6.00 am before sunrise most of the first two hours was walking through the city environs before reaching the suburb town of Virgin del Camino. From there the path mainly followed the line of the road taking me through several villages where refreshments were available. It was hot and humid so frequent rest stops were taken. It was a long day 35 kilometres which including rest stops took around 9 hours before I reached my destination for the night Hospital de Orbigo a delightful Spanish village – my bed for the night cost 5 euros ! On the journey I walked a while with Bretton from Australia a rather talkative man I had not seen since the first few days. Also enjoyed dinner with 3 Americans I crossed the Pyrenees with.
