Tuesday, July 16???
On Sunday, I got this nasty nail problem on the long downhill from the highest spot on the camino. It was a several hour downhill over rocks, rocks and more rocks. All kinds, shapes and sizes, brutal.
Yesterday my toe really started to hurt after the first 7 km. We stopped at a bar for a coke, I took off my boot to look. Just happened the Camino red cross was just across the street. I hobbled over. No one spoke English. They were kind, had a look, put on some cream, bandaged it, gave me the cream and said nothing more they could do.
I tried putting my boot back on, but it hurt more now, so I took a taxi to Molinaseca, where we'd planned on stopping. Monica walked.
I got a room and iced my toe.
Today I walked 8 km in my boots, but in Villafranca, I said if I couldn't get sandals, it would be a taxi or bus for me.
I found comfy sandals and walked all day - about 25 km, but by the afternoon, my toe was throbbing a little.
Tomorrow we make a big climb into the mountains of Galicia. I hope I can do it in these sandals.
I'm on that lower bunk right now. Out the kitchen window is yet another castle ruins, and the half moon is gorgeous! Good night..
