Today was our best day yet on El Camino de Santiago in terms of cycling distance. We started in Cobreces and are now in Colombres, a 38 kilometer day. This pace will not get us all the way to Santiago this trip. Our daily altitude gain of 400 to 500 meters is challenging and we often end up pushing our bikes up the mountains, but it is fun even so.
The first two evenings we were so tired that we went right to sleep. The last three we were able to get cleaned up and then sketch a bit, take a small walk, and even watch the sun set at 9:30 PM. This evening while I sketched in the hotel garden, Peter worked on a bench across the way on a math problem, framed by an old stone wall, incredibly green fields and distant blue mountains. And what could be nicer than doing mathematics in a beautiful place like Spain?
