Last night I was miserable when I slept. It was freezing cold in my room. I was shivering. I woke up to go to the restroom around 6 AM and then I realized that the freaking window was open allowing the cold air in. Silly me! I was shivering all night and not even thinking to check if the window was open. I close the window, go back to bed and immediately feel a lot warmer.
You may be wondering why am I continuing to walk after my Camino is technically over. Simple: I want to be able to say I walked from one end of Spain to the other. I started in France crossed over the Pyrenees into Spain and now will walk and put my feet in the Atlantic ocean and then my journey across Span will be done.
And yet again while walking ... I run into my walking buddy Janet (Canada). It seems that even when we don't plan to walk together, or don't discuss what time we are leaving, we run into each other along the trail. Neither of us can believe it. I see her ahead and shout her name as she cuts a corner, and her response to the sound of my voice is 'Really?'
Finally we get into town and check into a random albergue beside an interesting fountain. Go through the usual ritual, shower, wash clothes, and then head across the street to grab a bite to eat.
Later in the evening, I'm waiting for the bathroom to become available again and the new friends I have made earlier today and another past friend re-invite me to share in their dinner. They asked earlier but I don't want to get them sick but I'm really really hungry and sick of eating fruits. But this time I accept.
