Today was a great day for playing with wildlife. Kittens, Robins and baby cows were out in force to cheer me on when the blisters were making my finishing the day questionable.

Tonight I’ll eat with my American and French friends at the Albergue El Pajar de Ages where we’re staying overnight and tomorrow finish the 20k to Burgos where a rest and rubdown await. Once again I’ll have to part ways with my camino family and this time face the challenges of walking with a friend.
