Day 5 Almansa 28k
Camino Levante 2018
Finally I am well and truly in the Spanish countryside and the trail climbs early on on wide dirt paths. The hike today criss crosses the railway track and unfortunately like yesterday there is absolutely no shade to be had.A breeze is keeping the temperature down however and today there are lots more vineyards are on show. The city of Almansa is evident 10k’s away and there is nothing to stop for until I reach it. The huge castle sits above the edge of the town and tonight Spain are playing to stay alive in the World Cup and all the kids are in the streets playing football and all the people are wearing red Spanish jumpers.
The beautiful chapel of the Virgin Mary has another exquisite altar. And of course there are 2 more candles burning brightly.
