She has several remaining siblings in Peru, but concentrates the majority of her time on her children and grandchildren. Slightly a different environment than living in College Hall, to say the least. But Mery is kind, and has a wide variety of experience traveling and working throughout the Americas and Europe, so conversations are always fluid and interesting. There is no better way to absorb Spanish culture than conversing with someone who slowly became a part of it. My breakfast is already on the table—Mery’s nightly routine includes laying out the sliced bread, cereal, and valencianos necessary for my morning appetite.

In true Spanish fashion, a ramp leads to the top of the Giralda to allow the bell-ringer to ride a horse to the top of the tower. I spent last Saturday in Xátiva, a small town about an hour away from Valencia. A long castle dominates the surrounding mountains, so we of course climbed the hill and explored the castle. While a great place to hike and relax, the town has relatively little historical significance apart from being the birthplace of two popes . Tuesday we set out for Segovia, but failed to catch the AVE, and were forced to take the much slower train to the small city. In addition to Disneyesque Alcázar de Segovia, we had the opportunity to watch Evan working in a metal artist’s shop (don’t worry; he’ll be posting sometime soon with more details).
The catering industry is also beset by doubts over protocol. Teresa Rodríguez and her husband own two restaurants in Coslada, in the Madrid region, with a total staff of 27, though only one restaurant will open and one member of staff – the chef – will be working on Monday. Under Phase 0, the restaurant will only be open for customers to collect orders. But when Madrid province moves into Phase 1, Rodríguez is planning on opening the restaurant terrace, but with the specified limited capacity. “With five tables, we are not going to earn much,” she says. The yacht has received a major refit in 2017 with light and spaciousness as the main requirement from the Owner.
Also for me, it felt much more like the Camino I am looking forward to meeting as we enter more of the country sections of the route. Akina is very funny – I really think she is getting use to having her photo taken and seems willing to pose anywhere I ask her. Cami de Levante routeWhat a fabulous walk today’s section of the Camino was – giving me a taste of things to come when we get further into the country.

Our flight the next day left at eight in the evening, so we passed the afternoon in Madrid’s phenomenal Museo del Prado. In the four hours we spent in the museum, I feel like we probably saw half of what the galleries had to offer. I definitely will be returning to Madrid, and anticipate spending more time in el Prado. I took the upper route – a track, whereas in fact it follows the lower one – along the CV-600. You can see where it enters the town along an industrial area – and you will actually go on a small path specially built to travel under the underpass. Stay on the right hand side of the road and you won’t miss it.
In other news, I’ve finally started my internship with Spanish lawyer Ángela Coquillat. It’s a two-woman firm based out of Valencia, and with strong client bases in Madrid and Alicante. Our first day was spent getting to know the firm and looking over a case file.
Here you can see the old railway tracks – the rails since been removed. You will walk along the row of colourful Corte de Pelo Xativa houses shown on the left. The building photographed above is to my right and the arrow behind me.
Our plan was to ride from Vienna to Zurich, to Montpellier, France, to Barcelona, Spain to Valencia. An arduous train ride, but not a bad way to see the countryside, read some books, and save some money. There are certain downsides to being completely ignorant of the German language, not the least of which is traveling difficulties. Thanks to a miscommunication with a train conductor, we ended up in Salzburg, Austria (translated from German, “the Salt Fortress”) and needed to wait 90 minutes for a train back down to Innsbruck.
