Standing in the sun, it was a little chilly.
Enjoyed a quiet night and a good sleep. Up at 7:30. Mike needed to do some bike maintence. Our bikes were trashed from the mud and rain. The weather was overcast. Today's ride wasn't too challenging except for a strong head wind. Stopped in Granon for breakfast. The tortilla and zumo de naranja is excellent fuel for me. Most the towns were pretty quiet on a Sunday. Decided to stop in Villafranca de Monks Oca for the night after riding 25 miles. My muscles are starting to get a little fatigued. Found a nice little pension and scored a double bed. Most of the rooms have been two twin beds pushed together. Beautiful garden view and dinner is served at 7pm down stairs. The best part was a bathtub to soak in. Glad we stopped early the rain was right behind us.

With the two of you traveling a distance in one day what walkers take three to do...
it will cost you less for lodging in pensions that those who are walking will pay in albergues. Are you going to stay in an albergue just for the experience?

We planned for about $40 euros a night, staying in private rooms. We stayed in one albergue and it was an experience. Similar to summer camp :)
