February 8, 2008

I am really in the deep country at Población de Campos after crossing a high plateau for 2 days. Polo and I are the only ones in a small albergue. I am writing this in the only bar in the village. No other pilgrims in sight. The sky was a clear blue this morning and although there were spots of ice on the ground you could see the pale green of what I believe to be winter wheat starting to grow.

This is a tiny and very cold albergue. We have partially remodeled the place to keep warm putting up mattresses as temporary doors to block out the cold and keep in the heat from one very small heater. By the way, the inner soles have really made a huge difference in the comfort of my hiking boots. Every night I take them out to air and dry.
