Stage 4 Complete

Posted: March 1, 2011 in Uncategorized

Just received this update from Jenny’s stepdad, Dan:

More than 200 miles down in just 3.5 days. It was snowy and cold today, but it should be better in the morning. We met Jenny in Castrojeriz (lastest Google Map), a small farming town 20 miles south of Burgos. We arrived just before Jenny and discovered that the town’s only hotel is closed for the winter and so is the only hostel. After a lot of hand signals and neatness, a kind man led us to a local bar(recently renovated), which has several rooms to rent. In the bar we met a couple of pilgrims from Germany and Belgium, both spoke perfect english, but didn’t believe that anyone could cover 200 plus miles in just a few days, because they had been on the road for two weeks covering the same distance. The other pilgrims told the Spanish bar patrons about Jenny, but they just laughed until we found her and she told her story in Spanish. Then they wished her God’s protection. Castrojeriz is very small, but is overlooked by the ruins of a castle built by the Moors when they occupied Spain, around 700 to 1400.

Jenny has a sore ankle and some blisters. She isn’t getting much sleep, but says that she is ok. The weather has been brutal, so pray for a break during the next few days.
