Apr 21 – As we left Zafra in the early morning, I turned around to see a line of peregrinos/hikers/pilgrims following us up the hill.
It reminded me just a little of our Camino Francés experience in 2011, except that then there were 50 and this morning only 5. Everyone stopped to get a picture of the old tower (Torre de San Francisco) from the 1500s, on the way out of town.
Then everyone rushed up the hill to capture the sunrise.
We talked to a white haired woman from Quebec, a young man from South Korea, and an older gentleman from Rotterdam. We smiled at the French. It’s good to be on the Camino.
Today we walked 12.5 miles again. We passed through a little town in the morning where we got some coffee at an open bar. We sat with the guy from Rotterdam. His name is Marcel. This is his third Camino too.
It’s colder than it’s been, and Jim is lamenting the loss of his jacket – he left it at the hostal a few towns back. More grapes, more olive trees. We see more ruins.

Sorry about the jacket. Perhaps another hiker will forget his. Of course, if so, it would be for a size 38 short!

So true, Doug. Jim is very philosophical, and figured someone needed it more than him. The warm weather will be back soon enough!
