Today’s ride was OK until we got near Leon. From there up to near Hospital De Orbigo the ride was just uninteresting. One can tell by looking at some of the pictures attached to this post.
We rode for 91 km. until we reached our place for the night. We were lucky to stay at the newly inaugurated Albergue Verde. Our host Minchu is taking really good care of us. As I write this brief post I am tempted by the smell of the vegetarian dinner that is being prepared next to me. Can’t hardly wait.
Tomorrow we will start our first hard climb towards Collado de las Antenas at 1515 meters. We are currently near 840 meters and 500 of those meters will be gained in less than 5 km…. pause for dinner….
Wow! Dinner was really good. We ate really well.
Now we are waiting for the sun to set and then retire for the night.
Well that is it for today. Wish us a buen camino for tomorrow.
