August 9, 2018: Joan, Randy & Joyce take on Camino Portuguese Day #4 | 18 kilometers
A good day becomes great…the walk from Sao Pedro de Rates to Barcelos along the central route includes a photo opportunity with Elvis, the King of Rock & Roll.
As we enter the Barcelos town square we hear music and see the festivities. Is this their way of welcoming weary pilgrims? No, wait! It’s Thursday, the traditional market day, Feira de Barcelos. Why wait until the weekend?
Poor Tiina, our Finnish friend, is having ankle issues so came in later that day. Joan is the hero as she marks a bottom bunk ready for Tiina’s arrival at Albergue Cidade de Barcelos.
The grocery store is apparently having a sale on Bacalao, salted dried codfish. Reminds me of lutefisk with a better smell, consistency and taste.
Below is a short video of Camino Portuguese Day #4:

Cock-a-doodle doo! Tony and I are both curious if Joan brought the wine glasses from home?? They are the same ones in a previous video aren’t they? Also, that bacalao meal looked like a steal! Delicious!
Anxious to see how the 32 kilometer day goes. What a cliffhanger!
Yes, she carried them along. Jeannie gave them to her. I had two hard microwaveable coffee mugs along, too, along with instant coffee. We had our own coffee almost every morning which saved a lot of money.
