10 k to Castromonte - 10 chilly, windy kilometers.
No rain, and the skies are now blue. I hope the weather holds.
Castromonte has another very nice Albergue. There must be 20 beds here, a very nice kitchen with stove, fridge, and microwave, and hot showers. There is heat but they ask you not turn it on until after 8 pm
I found no place to hang laundry (there is a washing machine) and I didn't really have any wash but wanted to hang out my sweaty clothes so many times I have been happy I brought my little elastic clothesline I did see another pilgrim with just a lightweight pice of cord, and that would also work fine
There is a carneceria but he closes at 1 pm. I was late but rang the bell and he sold me food; hamburger, chips, an Aquarius. I made myself a burger for lunch and have another for either breakfast or dinner.
I heard a commotion, looked out the window, and saw a hundred sheep going by . . .
