Day 13 Poblacion de Campos – Calzadilla de la Cueza 33km

“Are you going all the way to Santiago?” During the first week of the Camino most people answer “yes” proudly to this question. But, after a while people start to experience the myriad of things that can go wrong on the Camino; wrong with feet and backs and hips and legs and knees and minds. Illnesses from food poisoning to chicken pox to terrible bed bug bites, and the response to this question changes to “I hope so.”

Tonight a group of us relax after dinner and look at each others photos, swapping Camino stories in the warm night air and listening to Manu Chao. Then a Spanish guy appears with a joint and takes the whole experience to a more exciting place. It's very, very, very good weed, and in no time we're giggling like mad at photos of Spanish women in blue curly polkadot skirts. When I finally get in to bed I try to set an alarm for the morning but end up setting a one-minute timer repeatedly instead – which set us off giggling all over again. My apologies to all the pellegrinos who were trying to sleep at the time...
