We walked 14 miles yesterday in our new ponchos : )
The Province of Galicia is the final third of the Camino and is much colder and wetter, but Santiago is within reach-only 3 walking days left. So different than the meseta or middle region of the Camino where it was hot, dry and flat and messed with the perception of time and distance, tested your mind, confronted your heart and seemed almost an unfathomable distance to Santiago.
We arrived in Portomarin a little cold and wet, but without ponchos we would have been soaked. All the cafés surrounded the plaza and the church of San Nicolás, so I sketched from the warmth of a cafe.
52 miles to Santiago...and rain is predicted most days.
