Our albergue experience at Baamonde was quite satisfactory. Dining in the village was not, although we did have an excellent 3 euro bottle of white wine yesterday while we were waiting for laundry. We left town in a light mist but that stopped after 30 minutes or so.. We walked along the highway for 3km and then onto pathway through the forest and then fields, stopping at a nice little albergue for "second breakfast" of tarte and cafe. Finally, we walked on one lane roads into Miraz. Today was a fairly short day again, only 16.3km to Miraz where we decided to stay with friends (Marigold and Gabby) at a new place, Albergue O' Abrigo, that had been recommended to them. We arrive shortly after noon and had a nice "menu del dia" lunch. We've been assigned lower bunks so that's nice and we hope the albergue does not fill up.
