Day 08 - Villamayor de Montjardin to Torres del Rio

Started early and stopped along the way for breakfast. This always consisted of lovely fresh coffee with tortillas or toast. Sometimes we pigged out with the addition of fresh squeezed orange juice.

We had 12km to go to reach Los Arcos. The weather was perfect and the path through the fields in the undulating countryside was beautiful. We came across a whole pair of worn out boots which had been left to rest by the wayside, decorated with sprigs of barley. Los Arcos was not a particularly beautiful place.

There was an intriguing notice, which said "Prohibido lavar ropa en los lavabos". This was translated, rather quaintly as “Prohibited in the toilet flush”! Although I had never considered washing my clothes in the flush toilet and never intend doing so, I always found it very convenient to take my sweaty clothes off and take them with me to the shower, where I would trample on them with the soap from the shower to start with and rinse them out. They then only needed a quick further scrub and they would dry quite quickly and would be civilised to put on by the next morning.
