Walking the Final 60km to Santiago

The walking is getting harder in that it is more on pavement or very hard packed gravel, paralleling the highway. At times we walk behind shopping centers the way the rail trail does in Hadley but some villages are still appealing and it is still Spain, great food. So far we have had sun. Yesterday I walked without my camera but today I took it out again. More pilgrims and also obvious ads for taxi services which is funny. Many pilgrims seems to be from Madrid but we have met retired Australians, Brits, Irish and a few Americans. We hope to arrive in Santiago to see big celebrations in honor of All Saints Day but we may be a day late. Anyway, it will be a celebration for us.
I can’t see how the previous blogs I have read about the Camino fit what I have experienced. It isn’t all paved, it isn’t all flat. Many of the services seem to be closing down at the end of October but the temperature is fine for walking.
