We set off for the railway station, hoping to find a cafe for breakfast, but were disappointed.
The train arrived quite soon, and was full of commuters, but we had an interesting trip to Oviedo.
The railway station led us to a modern boulevard, confusing us as to what direction to head for
the cathedral, but we eventually got our bearings, and stopped off at a modern cafe for something to eat.
We took a tour of the cathedral, and then Sue checked out a Decathlon for new insoles and sun cream,
before leaving on the Camino Primitivo. This took us through modern housing estates into the countryside,
with several helpful locals showing us the way. The way was quite pleasant, with rolling countryside,
and we made it to L'Escamplero in good time.
On the way, we found a little church with a pilgrim stamp in a cupboard outside the door,
as well as a shady spot to stop for a drink. Stopping off at a butcher's and grocery shop for supplies,
we discovered that we had to register there anyway for the hostel in a former schoolhouse.
There we met a lady from the Czech republic and a Hungarian lady. Other than that the hostel was empty,
and we had a dormitory to ourselves.
