Service is temporarily suspended due to a particularly nasty tummy bug.
I felt cold and nauseous yesterday afternoon. By 5:30 I’d gone very pale and had to excuse myself from the group. I went to bed and through the night got more sick… which is far from ideal in a shared dorm with one bathroom.
I spent a fair amount of time laying on the floor in the bathroom as it saved me going to and fro my bed every time I felt sick… you get the idea.
Hilda was also at the albergue and also sick. She told us that one of the Bordeaux guys was sick, one of the Italians and poor Anamika.
The hosperdario said that we should get a bus to Salamanca as tonight’s stage has nothing… no shop… no pharmacy… no doctor. They felt it was best we go somewhere bigger just in case. The priest drove the sick crew to the bus stop and got us on the right bus… and my dear support team at home booked a room.
I’ve showered and I’m now tucked up in bed hoping that whatever this is will pass as soon as possible so that we can resume walking again.
It’s all part of the great camino experience I suppose.
