Day 34 -Ourense

From the phonecam of el Peregrino

Ourense is a big city. Just over 100 km, this is the last place to start

walking to Santiago and still get your compostela (minimum 100 km on foot,

200 km on bicycle). The city is a little hilly (like San Francisco),

ironically the albergue is right next to the cemetery San Fransisco. This

city is founded by the romans (Aquae Urentes). Aqua? Water? You guess it.

Hot springs. I'm taking the 6 pm bus from Praza Maior (Plaza Mayor) to the

springs which I was told is free! This body needs some hot spring water

badly. More information later.
