41 • Puebla de Sanabria

It was cool and overcast but had a distinctive Sunday feel to it. Very little traffic and the path crisscrossed the highways a number of times. In between, walked through oak forests in autumn colors, on patches of Roman road and through five quaint little villages. The terrain and soil has changed dramatically, so too has the architecture of the houses in the villages, everything is made of stone and even the roofs are slated. The path, bordering walls and houses are all made from gray rock, certainly a change from the red or white stone earlier on in the Camino.

I caught up with Hannes at the second village where we had a coffee in a Bar full of friendly locals and a vivacious woman bartender. We then walked the rest of the way together chatting which made the time go pleasantly.

Wishing everyone a happy Sunday.
