And drinking bottled water!

I´m really not hating the Meseta this time around. I found the 20k walk in today to be relatively mild which gives me hope for tomorrow. The flat yellow fields look a lot better in the Autumn chill under a perfect blue sky.

I´m walking with a fantastic group of people and just generally enjoying taking it a little slower this time around.

I´m staying in a nunnery which seems really lovely and has luxurious bathrooms.

Most importantly...I´m not puking, this is a good thing

No little man, just lots of bells in the morning

i don't think i've ever seen a real, live nun... are they as terrifying as i've been lead to believe?

I didn´t see a single nun while I was there!

I think all things considered that I´m probably quite happy about that.

At the other nun-run place in Carrion, you do get to see nuns- some lovely youngish, very welcoming ones, with beautiful smiles. I got so used to the grumpy hospitaleros that were more the norm in Spain, that their welcome came as quite a surprise. And in the evening they had singing that pilgrims could go to, with pilgrims crowded in the foyer and up the stairs... then they handed out little stars and a blessing to finish.

All the ones I met were lovely. I was especially impressed by the singing at the Monasterio at Leon.. although it was a little wierd seeing them singing from behind a metal grill.
