In Negreira

Thursday afternoon, April 3

We have made it to Negreira with one very big climb and a couple of smaller ones and a few downpours. A good walk overall, though.  Temps in the low fifties.

We must have left all our helpful maps and guides, including notes I had compiled, at San Martin Pinario this morning.  To our amazement an information booth as we entered Negreira was staffed, and by a wonderfully helpful African American woman from California who was able to supply some of our missing information and suggested this comfortable pension, La Mezquita where we must have the deluxe room with a huge bed

They have even turned on the heat for us, and the shower was hot, although I am still cold.  We have had a few minutes of sunshine, and some dramatic clouds.

I'll try to get a picture.

It was good to be walking again today.  We encountered a total of 5 other pilgrims, plus a lone woman heading back toward Santiago.
