Day 29e. Castrojeriz, Camino.September 2 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C
We stayed at Albergues Ultreia about half way along the very long main road. Our room is a double private room with en-suite bathroom for 48€. A bit hefty in price. The township is made up of lots of Albergues and Hostels.
We showered, washed our clothes, walked the Main Street and settled for a beer and nibblies at the bar across from our Albergue.
We walked the Main Street to the end and viewed the Iglesia de Santo Domingo.
We also had dinner in the bar across the street from the hotel. Amazingly several of the people we met last night also found their way to the pub looking for company. We spoke with the English "chap" we sat with last night and passed a few words and nods with others who sat at their own tables but seemed to be listening to us chat anyway. It did feel like we established a bit of a group and it was a good night.
Off to sleep to dream of more dusty roads and second breakfasts and cosy little hamlets and inexpensive beer and early mornings.Read more
