Another day, another bus
A beautiful sunny day for a 22km bus ride into Barcelos. As usual Dayton has found and booked us into a hotel that is ideally located, right in the centre and heart of the town. Our Hotel Terco is right on the major centre town square where every Thursday Portugal's oldest and most traditional open-air market is held and today is Thursday. The market stalls fill the square peddling everything from vegetables and fruits, to cheese, breads, Iberian ham, salted cod, chicks, chickens and hens, flowers and plants, and all manner of clothing and household goods. But..if I buy it, I have to carry it so there is no personal shopping going on here.
Dayton is going to tour this town, find and walk its Camino route and I am going to stay at the hotel, rest Whatever is bothering my feet and watch the clothes dry. This may not be the Camino we planned but each day has come with its own little gifts and surprises; a great tapas bar, an open air market, a lovely waterfront, or chance encounters with other pilgrims and wonderfully, welcoming and helpful souls to help you get what you need and enjoy it.
