The lovely folks at Moratinos sent me off with a cafe con leche and a warm croissant.
More flat Meseta ahead and behind me.
Finally a few trees.
Sahagun was ready for a 3-day fiesta include running of Bulls. A quick cafe and visit with friends, and off to walk an alternate route.
The route to Calzadilla del los Hermanillos was very quiet and beautiful.
The town was quiet too. Almost deserted except for the two albergues and pilgrims.
