Spent a good portion of the day exploring Caminha. Got a ride into town (10 miles) from a local guy.
Caminha is surrounded by Atlantic Ocean to the west, a river on the north, and another river to east.
This is the “Hola” smile of the day. He had lots of fun chasing the pigeons around the plaza.
Well, he had lots of fun until he face planted a few minutes after this.
There are some distinct word differences between Spanish and Portuguese. Apparently only the Spanish words I actually know are different. For example, gracias (thank you) is obrigado in Portuguese.
The good news is that more people speak English in Portugal. Students are required to learn a second language (English or French).
Had lunch in the big central plaza area of town.
Took the train back out to the burbs late in the afternoon.
Got my plan made up for last 10 days I’m here. Over the next 3 days I will hike to Labruge. That is 43 miles away and will put me at my goal of 810 miles.
I plan to spend 3 nights in Labruge, walk to Porto, spend 4 nights, and then fly home on July 24. Anxious to be heading home.
Happy trails and buen Camino!
