Stage 22: A bit of a slog. Reflecting my state of mind.

A thousand idiots clamouring for attention.

So.. Arévalo to Medina del Campo 34km, with coffee stop at 8km and menu del dia in a service station 21km (white table cloth.. waitress service.. had to turn down the bottle of wine.. three courses..). Summer’s back – flat plain and hot. Walking on dirt paths at a distance from the the main road.

Stayed with Carmelite monks – who gave us proper beds with sheets, pillow cases, blankets and towels. Believe me.. that means a lot!
