Zamora - Day 20 - May 4, 2012

I am in a bit of a rush today, it takes a lot of time to upload photos and attach them to the blogs, and there were three to do today as it was our first wifi in a while. I need to go wake the others from siesta and drag them out for dinner. So only pictures and brief comments for today's blog.
It was a nasty 30 km walk on the side of the highway today. It poured for about 2 hours or so and after that we only got rained on for short periods now and again and we even got some sunshine for a while! The only consolation was that the shoulder of the highway was about 6 ft wide in most places and paved. I was happy to walk on the pavement rather than the muddy trail of the Via de la Plata for a day!

This sat by the roadside. We weren't able to discover what it was all about.

We passed a house decorated with gargoyles of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves.

 We stopped for a beer and everyone did their favorite stretches!
 Barb's injured face is turning awful colours.  :( Her feet  had been doctored by "Captain Highliner" and had a compead bandage on her blister. It was still sore but she could walk at least.
 Zamora has a very pretty approach via the 1.5 lane bridge!

A rare moment of blue sky as we cross the bridge into the city.

The Albergue is very nice 26 beds, modern and bright and tucked into the side of a church built into the hill. I will tell you more about it in my next blog. Got to run!
