Last night about an hour before bed I ended up striking up conversation with these two middle aged women, one from South Africa and the other from Spain. It was pretty ridiculous how things turned out. After explaining to these ladies about how i’ve been out of commission for the past 2 days, with a strained ligament; the Spanish woman leaped up with excitement and muttered something in spanish to the english speaking South African. Me, being lost in translation, Miranda, the South African then explained that Matilda had a cure for me and swore i’d be better by sunrise!
without hesitation I jumped up with peaking curiosity to what this cure she claimed was all about. Matilda then brought out this herbal oil called “Arnica” and handed it to Miranda as she massaged my foot for about 5 minutes. It was a miracle, the chances that I ran into these two ladies who ended up having an ancient herbal cure was just way to chilling for me to come to reasoning with.
Anyways, Today I walked. 20 kilometers. I have now hit the 100 mile mark and can proudly say as I sit here in Logrono, Spain; I’ve accomplished stage 1:) ENJOY the PICS!
