Foncebadón to Ponferrada
- Friday, 10 April 2015
After a great breakfast consisting of bacon, eggs and fried bread at the local shop I set out for the Cruz de Ferro, reaching it just before sunrise. It turned out to be pointless arriving at sunrise as there was a thick blanket of fog and even if it was a dear day it would have been impossible to actually see the sun rise from the Cruz as it is surrounded by trees! The Cruz also turned out to be something of an anticlimax.
One thing that didn’t dissapoint though, was the walk to Ponferrada, the scenery was stunning for much of the way. The past couple of days has seen more and more flowers blooming and the leaves on many of the trees are beginning to unfurl.
About 12 of our multi-national group turned up at the same albergue so in the evening so together with Che we cooked Korean egg soup and Coq au vin.
