Day 14:  Hornillos to Castrojerez

We’re feeling a bit guilty for our shorter walk today after arriving at our albergue before 1:00 – which is a first. The walk was quite flat so we had a faster pace. The other gals shipped their packs today (courriers will transport for 5€) and commented on how much easier it was. As of now I think I’ll continue to carry mine (always leaving the other option open)

Meseta means “plateau” and besides the little green valley (2nd pic) it is very dry and isolated. We sure like walking in dirt over asphalt – sooo much easier on our feet!

Below are the ruins of an old monastery. They have an albergue here, but no electricity or running water (not for us)

This is the view into Casttojeriz with the ruins of a castle in the hill. 

While most of my photos show the “pretty,” there are definitely the ugly parts of Spain as well. Many of the villages we pass have lots of for sale signs, and if the camino didn’t go through, they could be ghost towns. 

Staying here tonight :  Albergue Rosalia. No bunk beds!  Yahoo! A cute outdoor patio and kitchen. Many of the asians cook their own food in the albergue kitchens. We kind of like to be served 😝
