The Straight and Narrow

Day 9
Los Arcos to Viana

We left Los Arcos fairly early. The road was a good surface, through vineyards and wheat fields, growing golden in the sun. I met four pilgrims from Louisiana, and we chatted at Sansol after hop-scotching each other up the road. Just up the road from  Sansol we caught the bus at Torres del Rio to take us into Viana.

The Camino surface was generally hard and firm, good footing. There was little shade, though, so when we made it to Sansol we sat down for drinks at the first cafe we came to. Then a long lunch at Torres del Rio while waiting for the bus. I used the time to upload photos. I’m  still struggling with the technology!

Steps Today: 18,300
