Rabnal del camino

Day 24 had an eventful start when I got a splinter in my toe that we couldn't remove. Luckily the local emergency room was only a couple of blocks away and had no one waiting! They did an excellent job and patched me up with instant relief. They didn't even charge me. Lucky Spain won the soccer or they may have had a busier night!
Minor speed bump passed we headed out from pretty Astorga and up through the dry hills studded with stone villages. Rabnal is very cute and popular with some day tourists as well as pilgrims. There is a monestary of Benedictine monks from Belgium in town and they did evening prayers that were almost entirely gregorian chants in Latin. Amazing in a little simple whitewashed and stone chapel.
