Finding our way along is not all that difficult. There are tiles like in the first picture mounted on the sides of buildings in villages and sometimes there is a shell embedded in the concrete sidewalk like above, but mostly there are yellow arrows, like someone with a bucket of yellow paint and a paint brush has walked the route and left his mark. We also have seen granite markers like in the next photo - sort of like a gravestone monument.
I wrote the following after the 2nd night out at the Albergue at Castilblanco. I will upload it and some pictures while I have connectivity at the Albergue here in El Real de la Jara.
Today was a 17 km walk through rocky and hilly terrain. We first dropped by the post office and mailed a package of stuff to the endpoint. Having carried over 20 pounds (with water and poles) the first day we decided a lighter load was necessary and so I found several pounds of unnecessary stuff to mail onward. The 3 of us walked with lighter packs.
Got to run - time to go find some dinner!
