Salceda to Lavacolla.

Our last full day of walking – not even that full, since we decided to stop not too far from Santiago in order to arrive in the city early. We stopped at Lavacolla, where medieval pilgrims stopped to wash themselves before entering the holy city, in an age when baths were few and far between. Knowing how much I long for that hot shower at the end of each sweaty day of walking, I can only imagine the relief of getting rid of the sweat of 800 kilometer (or more.)
