Flag of Spain  , Castille and León,
Sunday, April 4, 2010

Place I stayed in Leon was donation based and provided a breakfast of coffee, bread and jam which was nice. Headed out and spent about 6Hrs walking with only a single 10 minute stop. Probably not a good idea to walk so far without a break. Had a couple of people pass me and saw a few bikes but otherwise on my own most of the day. Not to interesting a walk since it was mainly by the side of a highway but at least it wasnt to rough.Saw a few chuches and one of the more interesting things in the day were the stork nests located in the church towers. Thought the storks and their nests were pretty cool.

 Decided to stop at the first hostel I got to since my knee was starting to hurt and I could feel the blisters coming up. Dont know why I never tape them before I start walking. The owners didnt speak a word of english but managed to get a bed. While the room had 8 beds I was the only one in the room which was nice. Guess not many people stop in this hostel or took the alternate route since at least 120 people left Leon that morning.

Crashed for a couple of hours then wandered around town for a bit and had a drink in a pub. Lots of people in the pub but cant have much of a conversation when you dont speak spanish. Ended up an omlette (was expecting totelini) for dinner and then having another early night to let my body recover. Guess I sleep at about 12-14 Hrs.
