Leon this past weekend was hectic and the Benedictine convent albergue booming. To avoid the crowds my new Antwerp friends and I eventually followed a peaceful alternative camino route out of town slightly southwest towards Villar de Mazarife. It was very pleasant to escape the N120 highway noise and suburban sprawl; nevertheless, the mud path crossing wide flat plains planted with corn was slick from incessant cold rain. From time to time hunters' shots could be heard, sometimes a bit too close for comfort! At Villar de Mazarife we three were the only pilgrims at the Tio Pepe private albergue, yet we were welcomed like royalty and their copious dinner was most delicious!
