10/15/12 Porriño to Redondela

   After last night's disruption, I got a decent start around 8a.  I found a bar around 9 or 10a and stopped for a cafe con leche.  Shortly after Mos, I met a German pilgrim on his way to Pontevedra, a long day for sure!  We walked together until Redondela, then I stopped for a late breakfast at the beginning of town.  I found this really nice bar with a great menu for pilgrims.  I had some fresh-squeezed OJ, a cafe con leche and some toast.  From there I continued walking and decided to stay at a private albergue instead.  I arrived at 1p and there was no one there.  I rang the doorbell.  No one.  So I decided to call and was told where I could find the key.  I made myself at home, took a shower, ate a snack then wandered around a while, buying more snacks for later.  I found a small bar down the street from the albergue.  I had an early dinner.  I was able to get caught up on a few days of journaling before heading back to the albergue.  There's a group of seven German women I keep running into and they were outside waiting to pay for the room in the albergue so I waited with them.  A woman finally showed up, we paid our money and she was gone!  It was weird.  I had a room all to myself that night and slept very well.
