Waking up in a Pilgrims´dorm to the sounds of three different alarm clocks. In Astorga. Three bloody alarm clocks, at the same bloody time - and just ten minutes before mine was due to go off...whoever told you the free-rider problem means things don´t get produced is lying to you. Or hasn´t been on a walking holiday, sleeping in dorms!
Just finished our walk for the day. 29 km (18 miles) all together. Sweating away in the heat, but the landscape is brilliant. Thanks to my iPod, I listened to Radiohead´s OK Computer. Listening to "Fitter happier" in the wilderness is quite something.
Every village along the way has a beautiful church. Building churches must be the best way to combat unemployment. Very Keynesian.
