Sunday, October 11/15

After a good sleep and breakfast, we all wandered over to the big cathedral. K&A paid to tour inside while Linda and I wandered around the walled part of Leon. We then met up with K&A and wandered some more, eating tapas and drinks at a couple places we happened upon. We went for supper with pilgrims K&A had met on the way – a couple from Australia, a woman from California coast and some Irish young people.


Linda & I left them exchanging stories and went to mass and the perigrino / pilgrim blessing at the Real Basilica San Isidore – that church we first saw on Saturday afternoon.

We plan to take a bus from Leon at 8:30am to Virgen Del Camino. Then will we walk to Villa Mazarife only 13.8 km. a easy first day.
