Sunday 18 may. Sarria – Portomarin – Hospital de la Cruz.

33 km, total 699 km. Quite hilly.
Pretty close to the hostel in Sarria was a bar where I ate breakfast. It was still heavy rain outside.
10 mil kvar
After Sarria I passed the stone to mark 100 km to Santiago de Compostela. In Brea, shortly thereafter, I stopped for a Fanta. In the store was a pilgrim who wanted to buy cigars, "puro". Lady behind the counter did not understand him so I translate. When we came out of the store I asked where he came from. "I am from Canada," he replied. "Then perhaps you've met Steve from Canada?" I asked. "I am Steve from Canada" was the response. "OK," I said. "Then there are two Steves from Canada on El Camino."

I arrived in Portomarin by the time for lunch >>>
