On the way into Castrojeriz yesterday we stopped by a small refugio set up in the ruins of an old convent for a cup of tea. Everything there (tea and accommodation) was "donativo" (by donation). We met up again with Greg and Maria, the Korean couple we first encountered the day before. We exchanged particulars; Greg impressed me with his knowledge of Chinese writing and his eagerness to stay in the place that had limited comfort !
We passed through Hontanas where we stayed on our first Camino and noticed that the pilgrim village had continued to boom with several new and quite stylish places for pilgrims.
