Leon to Villar de Mozarife – 23.4 km/14.8 miles


Buenos Dias! The first leg is done and we are resting in our Albergue “Tio Pepe”. So far, this is a different Camino from June. Then, we met numerous people on the trail and the Albergue filled quickly – now it is a more solitude walk, very nice. We only met two bikers and five walkers on the whole stretch. In the summer everyone uses their vacation time to walk as much of it as they can. Thanks to my knee we get to experience another different Camino – a good thing in the end.

At 6:30 this morning we headed out. Because it was still dark and us being the only ones it took some navigating out of the city. On the way we passed the enormous hotel “Parador de San Marcos” a former convent and made famous by the movie “The Way”. It was still to dark for a photo, so I borrowed one for below. This is still the Meseta; morning fog covered the land scape until noon when the sun finally burnt it off.
