Yesterday evening at 7pm (prompt) we all met for the evening supper and enjoyed a 4 course meal which was pretty decent by all accounts. The atmosphere was really special, with such lovely Hospitalera (staff working at the building) and with a lovely group of fellow pilgrims:
After supper we all retired for bed and I had a sleep not exactly without interruptions from the few professional snorers who happened to be in the room where I was hoping to get a good night’s sleep. As is my usual routine on the Camino I tend to wake up at around 2 or 3am, stay awake for about half an hour, and then drift back into a semi-deep sleep until around 6 or 7am.
In the morning breakfast was served and we all said our goodbye’s to each other as one by one each of us left to hit the path for the day’s walk ahead.
I stayed on in Lectoure this morning to go visit the post office to pick up some funds which were sent to me and I now have money again! 🙂
I “splashed out” on some products from the local area, for my siesta which I plan to have later on in the day today:
In total it all came to around 11 Euro so I’m happy that I have some great products from the region (the holy trinity of bread, wine and cheese) and at a price which reflects my planned daily budget.
It is another lovely blue sky day ahead and I’m off now on the way to the next big town: the town of Condom, which is about 35km away.
