Ventosa to Azofra.

We had planned to stop in Azofra because we had heard great things about the parochial albergue there. When we got there it wasn’t open, but in the end the municipal facilities were impressive – a small pool on the patio, and the only albergue we’ve seen with only double rooms (as opposed to the usual dorm rooms with usually dozens and sometimes even hundreds of people bunked in the same space.)

We ate dinner with some other pilgrims, on a restaurant “terrace” which was actually tables in the street outside the door, holding onto our wine glasses as the paper tablecloths fluttered in the wake of the tractors that passed every few minutes. A group of Irish pilgrims showed us how to pub crawl, even in a town with just two restaurants and a 10pm curfew at the albergue. But we crawled those two pubs, and we crawled them well.
