Well, unfortunately it had to come to an end. The infection that I picked up three days ago does not seem to be getting better. It's not worse, but it's not better. I'm making the arrangements for travel now. I expect to be back in Rochester Tuesday at 5:00 pm.
I still had a wonderful time and did things that I have never done before. If I had to do it all over again, I would change little things, but that is all.
I am glad that I got one more day in. It was 12 miles in 5 hours and I was cranking all the way. The blisters and calluses were manageable; I learned a lot of medical skills in the past couple of days.
I saw some more beautiful sights, and had one more beautiful Spanish sunrise before cruising into town. The hostel is gorgeous, just absolutely beautiful and the dueno is 3rd generation.
