Stage 9: Minaya to El Provencio 27kms


On the up side, the cold wind dropped yesterday and the sky turned blue and it stayed that way. A minor down: the sports centre cupboard wasn’t conducive to a post 25 mile rest up – football lessons and step classes till 10pm – so woke up needing a good night’s sleep. A cold shower to set us up to walk further within this enormous plain, within the footprints of Don Quixote and Sancho Panza (Ruta de Quixote), with the never ending horizons. Flat, flat, flat with the odd oak tree and road crossing, perhaps a twist in the path, for respite.

The guide book is suggesting another sport centre cupboard. A night with a bath and sheets would be good. Possible?
