Thoughts:
Debra – A long walk punctuated by a few crop fields – entering Sahagún was a nice walk
Mark –

Today we walked to Bercianos. The walk was unremarkable along the side of the road. This is to be expected along the Meseta. We invited a lone Australian pilgrim, Andy, to have dinner with us. It turned out he was also from Brisbane and we have multiple professional connections with him. It is such an amazingly small world.

Bercianos itself was like a small town from an American western with a Main Street you would expect see a gunfight break out. We stayed at Hostal Rivero which was fairly basic but once again had a very good value and enjoyable pilgrims meal.
