The journal reads, "This must have been the most boring walk so far!.... just like the A15." Arrived a very ordinary town, but the albergue was good in that it was in a convent, and we had BEDS not BUNKS. This is quite refreshing, as it means you can guarantee being able to sit up on your bed; the distance between top and bottom bunk is often very small.

We stocked up in this very ordinary town with chocolate milk, and drank some warmed-up on arrival. Entertainment on the way provided in the now-familiar way by posing next to representation of pilgrim, adopting the pose of the particular image.
