Day 8 - Villafrance de los Barros

A stop before a long walk in the vineyard tomorrow. Met a member of the Amigos de Camino de Santiago on the way to town and was given a map and places to stay. Chose one and found that it wasn't a hostal but the house of an old couple. The lady of the house spoken very good English. She was from Cuba, was working in Minnesota and had moved back here to her husband's home town after a bad accident that crippled him almost 40 years ago.

Their house is like a memorabilia of so many interesting things. And she has so many stories to tell which I do not have the time now to put into this blog.

That's her in the picture on the left. She's so beautiful when she was young, don't you think?
