Hot, hot, hot!

Day 15 Ribadiso to O Pedrouzo 23km (96.5km so far)
We saw giant slugs almost immediately after leaving the albergues and I thought we had a giant up. It turns out we did most of the up getting to the albergues last night making this morning easy! Within a few km we were walking through Arzua known for its cheese. We forgot to stop and get some though. We mostly walked through eucalyptus forests and countryside today. At brunch we stopped for breakfast and while we were sitting there a farmer and his wife came by with those herd of cows. It was funny to be sitting outside of a cafe and have them go by within feet of us. The clouds burnt off quickly this morning and the sun just beat me up! I kept putting sunscreen on but it wasn't enough and the heat slowed me down. At one point I could see waves of heat coming off the ground. We finally made it to our destination and because it is a bigger town we had to search for the albergues. Actually we are staying in a pensiones which is more like a bed and breakfast. The room is nice, has bedding and we have towels and soap. After we were all showered up and some of us had naps, we all felt better and headed down the street to find a place to eat. We ended up at a busy cafe that had a pilgrims menu. The food here has been amazing and it was several hours later before we made our way back to our rooms. I probably spent way too much time trying to delete things on my phone to make more space for pictures but now it's bed time and I'm giving up. Good night world!
