We started the day with a nice breakfast which included Arzúa cheese. It turns out that cheeses in Spain have controlled origins just like wine. After about a km we rejoined the Camino.
The topography map in the Brierley guide shows modest grades It was anything but, however we continued around the airport, past San Payo, which didn’t have any hotels and in to Lavacollo, and found the Hotel Garcas, which is very nice. Tomorrow we should only have about 10 km left.
I cannot leave without mentioning the name of the town, Lavacolla, comes from pilgrims washing portions of themselves to be pure for Santiago. Colla in medieval Romance language means scrotum.
