We begin the trail, or is it trial?

I have to confess that I told my friend Marv that jet lag never bothered us, we always hit the deck running, but today proved me wrong. After some thirty six+ hours traveling without sleep or proper food! we started today with a 16 mile trek scheduled, stopped for a baguette, and across the street for ham & sausage for our picnic. Then the reported flat walk climbed a bit, followed by a continuing undulating route. Much of today was spent heel to toe in a deep rutted track. But then, evil jet lag set-in, and our miles made good shrieked down to a very tired 9 miles at a Gite (in Spain it is an Alberque, shared living) the Spirit of the Camino smiled on us and we got a private room. During dinner we were in conversation with three French couples, who said they were staying a second night, and they had taken a vote, and decided we should stay an extra day with them. They were a fun group but we are hitting the hot & dusty and moving on tomorrow, Not far, but far enough to work off the lag
