Camino Invierno Day 2 Las Medulas to O Barco

Pleasant walk today as we reached the River Sil which we would be following for a few days. August 18, 2021.
Rio Sil
In Saldeado, we stopped at the Municipal Social Center Cafe for a huge tortilla de queso. Surprisingly, we met 3 pilgrims from Italy. First time I ever saw more than 2 walking Invierno. One was walking from Assisi who started 26 May. They said Camino Frances was getting crowded and they wanted to avoid Sarria to Santiago stretch. And then another pilgrim stopped for directions. Even the Invierno is getting crowded. 😊
The 3 Italians
Beautiful continued walking along Rio Sil as we entered Galicia. Didn’t see any other pilgrims. Got to O Barco about 2 and got nice cheap clean room with bath for €40 at Hostal La Gran Tortuga. There was a comfortable area by river with bars to enjoy a drink.
