Day 9 - Well, I didn't see that coming ...

Sun 24th Sept., Villafranca de los Barros to Torremegía, en coche

You don't need all the gory details, but in summary I've been struck down by a gastric bug. Completely unable to move, let alone walk 27 klms.

Caught a car from Villafranca de los Barros to Torremegía, where I've been in bed and mostly sleeping all day.

There was always a chance that the uninterrupted walk to Santiago would indeed be interrupted at some point, but knowing that possibility and experiencing the reality are quite different things.

Disappointed that we didn't get to walk the long stretch of Roman road today.

Disappointed all round really, and feeling lousy. I never get sick.

Janet will walk into Merida tomorrow, whether I do or not the next 12 hours will tell.

The photo below is from our room at the café across the road. The eagle-eyed will see Janet out exploring, the first time she's left my side all day.

And as she was out wandering she took some shots. Here they are:
