My right knee was sore from the previous night. It feels slightly better but when I walk I feel a little pain enough to cause to rethink if I should walk less or much slower or not walk at all. So I begin the morning by walking very slowly as usual. I don't pick up the pace for about two hours - until my body gives me the sign that it is okay to kick it into a different gear.
I started at 7:30 AM and reached my destination Carrion De Los Condes 20 km away just before noon. I walked around the town and saw my friends Troy and Janet (Canada) and Shayne (Australia) sitting at a restaurant - contemplating if they were going to stay here in town for the day or move on.
I had a few stops in between, and walked slowly for 2 hours but my legs felt fine except for a tiny blister I just picked up. I broke it, put some compeed on it and then decided to walk the next segment of 17.1 km which contained a stretch of 11.4 km (arguably 16.1) with no towns, or access to food and water.
One small interesting observation is that our unisex bathroom has urinals just beside the sink with no privacy barrier with a great view of the Meseta. Makes for beautiful viewing scenery and odd and perhaps awkward glancing moment from any women using the sink.
