After breakfast we cabbed to Camino de Albarreal since we had already walked through all of Toledo Old Town. The kind driver was concerned we had enough water and food. He called police station in Torrijos but their municipal albergue is closed. So we will trust in the Camino to find us a bed upon arrival.
We then walked through wine fields and stark treeless lands except for crops. As is my practice I soon found a natural walking stick which I prefer to commercial ones. Not very attractive but efficient nonetheless.
Then turned west at highway following Almond Tree Lane with beautiful blooming white and lilac flowers.
Arrived at alternative stop, Hotel El Meson at 3:30. A few kilometers outside of Torrejos we walked through what I called the Lane of Almond Trees. Both Mika and I find it reminiscent of walking the 88 Temple Pilgrimage in Japan in April during Cherry Blossoming Season.
Checked in out front via computer. €60 no breakfast. Decent enough small room. Clean and comfortable beds. 27K.
Walking to store I told Mika, “My feet hurt. My legs especially upper thighs are very sore. My legs and back of right hand are bleeding. My baby toe has a blister coming on. But I couldn’t be happier.”
Earlier in the day we had conversation on fine line between genius and insanity. Just as I was about to say, perhaps I am a little insane”. Mika beat me to it saying emphatically, “You are insane”
Got some food at supermarket and i sat out front of hotel with my big bottle of coke, jamon, cheese, and bread. Sweet.
